1995 Mercedes-Benz E320

What kind of car should you buy if you’re looking for a reliable, stylish daily driver with German build quality and driving dynamics, but don’t have a huge amount of money to spend? The W124 platform E-class suggests itself as an obvious answer. These are precisely the sort of car for which Mercedes-Benz earned its reputation as a manufacturer of the best cars in the world. Over engineered, reliable, safe and built like tanks, they can be regularly picked up still going strong with hundreds of thousands of miles on the odometer. Which means that if you can score a clean, low mileage example, you can be sure that it has many years of faithful service left ahead of it, if properly maintained. This remarkably clean, well-specified E320 looks to be just such a car.

This must be one of the nicest W124s I’ve ever seen for sale, outside of the 500E/E500 high performance variants that we feature from time to time. Dating from 1995, this E320 has the post-facelift front end that brought European-style glass headlights and a slightly rounder grille to the the US market. Though the dealer lists the color as “basanite gray,” a VIN check suggests that it’s actually either sapphire black mica or sapphire black metallic (it’s not entirely clear). In any event,  the car looks immaculate and barely used, both inside and out.

Power comes from the 3.2 liter version of the DOHC, six cylinder M104 engine, a generally robust unit. The car is nicely appointed with gray leather (as opposed to MB-Tex) seats, 6-hole light alloy wheels, passenger airbag and burred walnut trim, which looks nice and glossy in the photos. With just over 64k miles on the odometer, it’s not even broken in yet. With an asking price of nearly $9k, there are certainly cheaper W124s out there, but very few are as nice and fresh looking as this car.

  1. The 6-hole wheels, burl walnut in an E320 sedan, and Sapphire Black metallic paint (MB never used “mica” in paint names in the US) call this out as one of the final-year W124 “Special Edition” models. They included the above-noted items plus grey leather, driver-seat memory, 6-CD changer, built-in phone (no longer usable, of course, but a fun period piece if it’s still in the car) and any of four metallic paint colors — the exclusive Sapphire Black, plus Brilliant Emerald, Azure Blue or Moonstone Grey — all for $1,295 (compared to $4,500 regular pricing for all these items, iirc). You could also get an E420 Special Edition but it was much cheaper (like $450) since most of these items were already standard on the V8 model. The orange peel on the trunk looks pretty severe on this car but might be original. Overall it looks like a pretty clean, original car, if a little pricey (but, hey, “make offer” is there!).

  2. Darn you, Craig. I had been stalking this one for a while before they put it on eBay. Was hoping their price on the lot would come down a bit. Then they put it on eBay, you had to post it, and I panicked and ended up paying $8k.

    Oh well, I’ve been looking for a replacement for my totaled ’94 for 3 years. This one is even cleaner than mine was, and I really like the walnut. It will be nice having a 124 to park next to the 201 again.

  3. Congratulations! Sorry to be the cause of your parting with 8k, but it looks like you got a lovely car so its not all bad!
