Estate cars like the BMW 540i Touring we featured yesterday take a decidedly utilitarian theme and add a performance boost to appeal to those who like the path less traveled. For those who want pure utility but with a bit of luxury thrown in, there’s nothing better than a classic Mercedes-Benz estate. The W124 E-class perhaps epitomizes the breed, bringing the original W123 theme a decade forward in technology while still retaining the durability and restrained styling that buyers had come to love. Unlike many new cars, these cars can go on and on for decades, given proper maintenance. They truly are vehicles for a lifetime. Closing in on 136,000 miles, this 1995 E320 Estate for sale in Philadelphia is just getting into its stride.

This is a gorgeous looking 1995 Mercedes Benz E320 Wagon with the third row seat. This Mercedes is in beautiful condition with 135,917 miles, and has been very well treated and maintained.
All of the power and convenience equipment in this Mercedes has been checked, tested and are working except the headrests. All of the windows, door locks, mirrors, seats, and sunroof are working properly including the air conditioning, which is nice and cold.
This E320 runs and drives very beautifully, and there aren’t any service warning lights on. The engine runs very strong and smoothly, and the transmission shifts perfectly. The owner installed a full set of Michelin tires which are all showing good tread. The suspension and steering feels nice and tight. The oil & filter and air filter were just changed and this Mercedes is ready for pickup and immediate use.
The White exterior of this E320 is in terrific condition. The paint has beautiful brilliance and gloss over the entire body. Both of the bumpers and all of the lower moldings are in perfect condition without any scrapes or scratches. There isn’t any body rust on this car at all, and the undercarriage is clean and in excellent condition.
The interior is crisp, clean and in fabulous condition. All of the seats are soft, supple and in excellent condition. The carpeting is super clean and fluffy throughout this car. There aren’t any stains, holes or damage on any of the seats or carpeting. All of the trim panels are intact, tight and in terrific condition. This was a non-smoker owned vehicle, and there aren’t any smoke odors inside this vehicle.
The vehicle history report is clean without any accidents or damage, and we have the clear title in hand. I wouldn’t hesitate to jump in this Mercedes and drive this car anywhere in the country.
It’s always a risk buying a car like this E320 from an automotive wholesaler, but this one looks to be in good enough nick. Nothing is said about whether the wiring harness was replaced on this car, a known weak point in late model W124s with the M104 inline-6. If that hasn’t been address, it would wise to do so upon taking ownership. At no reserve, this car will probably fetch in the $5,000 to $8,000 territory. We saw a 1995 E320 Estate with 91,000 miles sell for $6,500 in March 2014. Prices haven’t moved a whole lot since then. If this one could be had for around $6,000 or a little less it would be a solid buy.
