1987 Mercedes-Benz 300TD

1987 Mercedes-Benz 300TD

I love a good build. Probably because it is someone else’s money, but mostly because it is a vision that someone has that is played out in car form. Sometimes they go really wild with stuff from everywhere, but a lot of things these builds are playing with the cards that the factory dealt. Restorations are nice and all, but my favorite is taking all the good stuff the factory has to offer and loading the car up that way. What we have today with this 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300TD is one of those cases. An extremely rare diesel wagon that was available in the US one year only in 1987, transformed into what the best the W124 has to offer.

1987 Mercedes 300TD Turbo diesel Wagon – Sometime known as the 300TDT

If you are reading this you probably already know what a rare car it is. Only about 1,500 1987 300TD wagons were imported to the States in the w124 style with the 6cly 3.0L turbo diesel engine. This diesel wagon was a one year car in the U.S. and the last ones imported to the US. In my opinion, this is one of the nicest 1987 w124 diesel wagons in the country! There are likely only half of the 1500 still on the roads.

This car sold for right at $45,000 in 1987. It was a top of the line car and best diesel engine Mercedes had come out with. It runs well, shifts smooth and is fast with only 147,9xx miles

I brought this car about 7 years ago from the original owner who was in his 70’s with the intention to just clean it up and maybe convert it to a vegi wagon.

1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 Estate

1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 Estate

I’ve gushed over the W124 Estate before and really can’t say enough about this wonderful vehicle. It has everything you really would need out a wagon, even in 2017, all while not breaking the bank when it comes to maintaining and repairing it. But like all cars that get old, finding a really nice one can become a little bit of a tough job because these were at the end of the day still station wagons. People bought them for their utility to use. I highly doubt the majority of the buyers out there treated these as a garage queens because lets face it, they had R107s and R129s for that. So when this mint 1995 outside of Boston popped up for sale, I had to take a closer look. But fair warning, the price on this one isn’t cheap.

1991 Mercedes-Benz 300TE 4Matic

1991 Mercedes-Benz 300TE 4Matic

A little over a month ago Craig looked at a nice 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300TE 4Matic. Today’s vehicle is another 1991 300TE 4Matic, although this one has a little different backstory. This Ice Blue Metallic W124 estate for sale in Central Pennsylvania is actually a Japanese market car that made its way to Canada before heading to Pennsylvania. This means it has some cool options and a slightly different look than what you are used to seeing. Now before you get too excited, there are some things about this specific 300TE that I’m not too crazy about. Let me explain.

This beautiful Mercedes 300TE 4Matic has been a daily driver in Nova Scotia and Pennsylvania since 2014. It is a super rare Mercedes. They are just a great car and is still the car I drive to and from work. I have also driven it long distances without issue. This car’s import VIN is WDB1242901F202795.

It is in very good condition on both the inside and outside and has never been in a wreck of any sort. There are 3 noticeable spots from rusting and they are ALL shown in the pictures: Under front driver’s side headlight and again behind the taillight on same side, and a small rust spot on back door. Overall, the body shows little wear for a 1991. The paint is in very good condition. A new clear coat was done in 2013. There are no dents in the car and there are few, if any, noticeable dings. The interior needs a good, professional cleaning and we will do that before delivery. This interior is so far superior to the leather they used to put into these cars.

Mercedes-Benz W124 Estate Face Off: 1993 300TE vs. 1991 300TE

Mercedes-Benz W124 Estate Face Off: 1993 300TE vs. 1991 300TE

$_57 (1)

“Old Faithful.” A term of endearment bestowed upon the things which are reliable and always there for us. Few things in the automotive realm embody this idea more so than an old Mercedes-Benz. And few Mercedes-Benzes are more recognizable as a dependable motoring companion than the W124 estate. Produced from 1986 through 1995, the US would first be acquainted with the W124 estate in the form of the 300TD in 1987. For 1988, the gasoline inline-6 would be substituted and we would see only petrol variants on these shores until the model’s demise in 1995. The following two W124 estates we’ll look at today are from around the halfway point of W124 production and have covered similar amounts of mileage. They are in good, if not perfect condition but represent the kind of vehicle for those seeking out not a museum piece, but an honest, serviceable example.
