1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 Estate

I feel that many vehicles these days are trying to be something they are not. Take one look at the myriad of crossovers or SUVs based on ordinary sedan chassis. Marketing professionals promise the thrill of escape and adventure but in all honesty, you’re not going anywhere. You’ll just blend right into the suburban landscape upon purchase. Want to stand out? How about driving something that doesn’t put on airs, like this 1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 Estate for sale in Vermont. This was the final year for the venerable W124, a car which is still a common sight on streets across the globe today. The estate version of the W124 was for those looking for a family car but wanted just a bit more in terms of luxury and versatility. With a rear-facing third row seat, one could carry up to seven passengers and the self-leveling rear suspension would keep things in check while doing so. If you’ve been looking for a tidy example of the five-door variant of this Benz, you won’t want to miss this one.

This E320 drives as new. It feels tight without any rattle or play. Exterior is painted in very rare Moonstone Gray, shines well and looks very nice for a 20+ year old car. Paint does have minor scratches and imperfections here and there. Interior is very nice with zero fading. Firm seats with virtually no wear. All doors close as they do in Mercedes Benz cars. Cold A/C. All lights, turn signals, horn and gauges work as they should. All windows work. Rear hatch stays open when lifted up. New battery and tires were installed in 2014. With continued and proper care this Wagon will serve many more years. Please scroll down for the terms of sale.

I absolutely love the color on this W124 estate, which isn’t too surprising, given my 1998 C230 was painted in this same shade of Moonstone Gray. This was a subtle shade of gray with a hint of mauve that would appear in certain lights. It took me a while to find that C230 in that color, but it was worth the wait. In the case of the W124, it perfectly compliments the conservative lines of this 1980s/1990s era Mercedes design. Considering what some mint condition W123 estates are bringing these days, the asking price for this clean E320 Estate is rather reasonable, as these W124s have the same indestructible build quality about them. There is no mention of the all-important wiring harness replacement, but if this car was serviced as described, my guess is that it was probably taken care of at some point. This is a vehicle that will last generations. Take care of it and it will take care of you. I can’t think of many newer cars that could live up to the same standard.

  1. Looks like my dad, the mad pinstripper, got to it. Once I brought a new car home and he instantly pinstriped it once I walked in the house. Gold on white. Thanks pop ….

  2. Love my 95 E320 wagon. Bought it at half the price and twice the miles. I started to lose faith when the repairs came at me in succession, including sourcing a replacement transmission. But the dust settled and with new motor mounts it transformed into the smoothest, silkiest cruiser I’ve owned. Just feels like quality.
    This example looks fantastic.

  3. Doug, I have to agree with your points! Mine was dead reliable for a long time – just did regular servicing. Finally I had to change that damn bio-degradable harness and from there it all seemed to go wrong.

    Such a fine car, when things are right, though.
