The W126 coupe is one of the most graceful designs to come out of Mercedes-Benz in years. This car is certain to be a Pebble Beach contender in another few years, given the tendency of Mercedes’ coupe models to become highly-sought after collectibles. This car is a cream puff, with under 80,000 miles and longtime ownership by the first owner. It has only recently changed hands and although there is no bidding activity as of yet, I can see this car fetching the low teens for a final price. Handsome, powerful, reliable – aside from a set of Euro lights and painted wheels versus chrome, not much I’d change here.

Where were we? Ah, yes – I was proclaiming my love for the 300CE. Not much has changed since then, and although this car here has had some repair work to its hindquarters due to an accident, I can’t see much evidence of it in the photos. The “family-ownership” aspect of this car’s history is a nice bonus, and the photo of it in the eBay listing with the car cover draped over it reminds me of vehicles from my youth belonging to neighbors and only coming out when the weather got warm (a very special time in the northeast). The bidding is already strong on this car, so its low mileage must be winning out above any concerns of prior damage. However, the “A/C needs a charge” line – people, it costs at most $150 and it does wonders for selling cars to anyone that encounters the occasional heatwave.

Last month, Carter featured an impossibly clean Corrado SLC with very low mileage. A lot of these sport coupes were snapped up by young enthusiasts a few years on and sadly were modified beyond recognition. I remember frequenting Volkswagen shows during my college years and seeing many of these cars chopped up, driven hard and laid up wet. Now two decades since the last Corrados were sold new in the US, a good one is hard to come by. This silver, one-owner Corrado G60 for sale in Connecticut is fairly original with little modification but has high mileage. The G60 isn’t the more desirable powerplant in the model lineup, but given the condition, this car is sure to catch its fair share of attention.
