Last Call For Summer: Mercedes-Benz Convertibles

The convertible. An automotive guilty pleasure of sorts. Not the most practical of vehicles but with modern day folding hardtops, they have become much more mainstream and practical than they once were. Mercedes-Benz has been in the business of convertibles for years, carrying on even in the dark days of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Currently they offer a few different cabriolets and roadsters to appeal to a broad spectrum of buyers and budgets, from the four-cylinder SLK to the ferocious SLS AMG Roadster.

Today we’ll take a look at four convertibles from Mercedes-Benz’s past, ranging from the early 1970s into the new millennium. We’ll start with a very well cared for 1994 E320 Cabriolet for sale in Pennsylvania, arguably one of the most collectable W124s currently, notwithstanding the 500E/E500.

1990 Mercedes-Benz 300CE

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.

1994 Mercedes-Benz E300 Diesel Estate

Mercedes-Benz has been one of the mainstays in diesel passenger car offerings in the United States. However, into the 1990s, the selection became a bit thin. If you wanted a diesel engine with estate carrying capacity towards the end of the W124 E class production, you were out of luck. In fact, Mercedes has not offered a diesel estate in the US since 1987, as 1988 saw the introduction of the 300TE to replace the 300TD. One intrepid Mercedes mechanic, though, has gone the extra mile to create what never was on this side of the Atlantic, with this 1994 E300 Diesel Estate.

1993 Mercedes-Benz 500E

It’s been over a decade since I last hopped behind the wheel of one, but I still remember my last encounter with a Mercedes-Benz 500E. Harmless enough though it looks, it packs a big bite. Acceleration, braking and handling were a revelation for a luxury sedan of its day, even if this car had serious sporting intentions imbued in it by Porsche. For a while, these special W124s were somewhat affordable but values have been on the climb, even for those with more than 100,000 miles on the clock. This 500E, replete with monoblocks, has 136k miles on the clock but looks to be well cared for.
