The 1982 Mercedes-Benz 300TD we featured earlier this month is back up for sale at the same price. A bit pricey for a W123 estate, but the folks at Mercedes Motoring do know their craft well.

“Bad Dad.” “SLMDWGN.” “MINIWHAT.” Oh, sorry – you caught me imagining what vanity plate I’d throw on the back of this Mercedes-Benz 300TE. I’m not even a father but I would rock that plate. This is why I love old-school Benzes and AMG wheels. They go so well together! There are scant few combinations that take such little effort to put together and deliver such stunning results. I believe the seller’s claims that this was a one-owner car before his ownership as it looks dang clean and the amount of money he’s thrown at it at least indicates to me he saw it as a worthwhile example to invest in. Regardless, the fact that it can look this good with a mere adjustment of the SLS is pretty killer, and all it needs is some European glass headlights to round this perfect cruiser out to perfection. One more: “3RDROWNED.”

With the explosion of SUVs in the Mercedes-Benz lineup, we tend to forget there was a time when the mainstay utilitarian vehicle in the product lineup was the T-model, more commonly known on these shores as the wagon. While the first factory wagons from Mercedes-Benz were the W123s in the late 1970s, there were a few coachbuilt examples that appeared before that. One of these was the Universal model based on the W110 chassis. This example for sale in California gives the five-door fan a rare chance at combining classic Mercedes looks with the utility of an estate.

The E39 is a classic, handsome car that may well go down in history as the quintessential 5-series. The wagon was merely an extension of the good looks and capability, multiplied when they saw fit to drop the smooth M62 4.4 liter V8 in it. Manuals were available but extremely hard to come by, and while that would certainly be preferable, an automatic is well-suited for highway and family-hauling duty. With just 84k miles, this luxury wagon is roughly the same price as a VW Jetta TDI wagon of similar vintage. If you’re not too worried about gas mileage, I know for certain which one brings more comfort and speed for the money.
