This bright red W124 Benz has received the full Renntech treatment with lots of nice mods. Many of the stock 300E parts have been uprated with parts from the more performance oriented 500E, such as the flared fenders, spoilers, hood, and headlights. The stock brakes have been replaced with Brembo units from the SL600. Under the hood is a Renntech massaged 3.6 liter inline six featuring forged pistons, titanium rods, Schrick cams featuring 300HP. The rear diff has been replaced with a higher ration 3.73 unit.
Inside there is all sorts of custom bits, neon accents, subwoofers, tv, vcr, Playstation 2.
A previous owner of this car stated it had $50,000 in work into, $20k in the engine alone at that point the seller wanted $28,000 for it. The current owner picked up the car for $15,500 in 2010 so the current no reserve price of $7,500 seems like a deal, but would make me want to really make sure the engine is still running well. 114,000 miles are on the body.
The W124 is one of those revered Mercedes-Benzes that has enthusiasts pine for the days of this German manufacturer’s engineering feats. Introduced in 1985 as a replacement for the equally legendary W123 lineup, the 300E was the bread and butter mid sized sedan for Mercedes and came equipped with the ubiquitous 3.0 liter straight six, producing 178 horsepower. Here we have an exceptionally well cared for, one owner early version of the 300E for sale in Maryland.
I am the original owner of this, garage kept, covered, hand washed, pretty day toy. Never driven in inclement weather. Not a mark, ding or dent on this car. Original factory spare, tools still in factor wrapper. New tires about 10,000 miles ago. Car has 58,000 miles. Dealer 60,000 mile service done within the last 2 months at a cost of $1,500. Automatic, cruise control, A/C, AM/FM Cassette player, electric adjustable seats with memory, sun roof, 6 cylinder 3.0 liter gas engine.
Getting ready to retire, and I currently have too many cars and am selling this one and an original owner 230SLK in the the same condition. This is a car that is known for longevity. I see them often with 200,000 plus miles on them. For the price of a used Honda you can have a virtually new Mercedes that has a lot of useful life left.
Like the 230E I featured a few months back, I believe this 300E represents the qualities that Mercedes-Benz built it’s reputation on: restrained luxury, timeless design and excellence in engineering. With less than 60,000 miles on the clock, this car has a lot of life left and even though $14,000 seems steep for a 24 year old sedan, the owner is willing to negotiate and honestly, I don’t think you could buy a more durable car for the price.…
We’ve seen several of these wagons pass by and have been impressed at what they have sold for. This one is no exception. The seller puts together a top notch ad for a top notch car and it is being sold at no reserve.
With over 117,000 miles this wagon already has spirited bids passed $14,000.
The car has excellent service history and had an engine overhaul at 96,000 miles. The car wears original paint and is optioned with the 3rd seat, tow hitch, Euro lights, and a rare MB cargo cover.
Just a perfect presentation here. The seller is also selling his low mile all original 300CD, which we are also listing on this blog. Check it out here if you want to buy the pair.
The price of well taken care of early 80s Benz oil burners in the wagon and coupe configuration continues to rise and surprise. This looks to be one of the best on the market. Sellers take note, this is how you make a nice eBay listing.
Coincidentally I am following up the nice 300TD just posted with another Benz estate. This 128,000 mile Benz wagon has seen some attention. The car has had a repaint and had the interior wood redone to the tune of $1800. That is an interesting thing to see on a car of this age. It is more common on older more valuable Benzs to have the wood redone. Going that far suggests the previous owner took good care of the car. The seller says the engine was rebuilt, a potential buyer should find out what that means exactly.
The vehicle also has some aftermarket headlights, that appear to be projector lenses at least in part. The wheels look to be Carlsson or Carlsson reps.
The car has third row seats to fit seven, though there is a subwoofer box back there now.
$9000 takes it. Offer to give the seller a few lessons on how to write a better online advertisement (hint don’t use all CAPS) and see if you can get the price down for a better deal. Benz wagons owners are cliqueish so ownership comes with instant fanboys. With the seller in Brooklyn and the plates from Oregon its made at least one cross country journey, one should make sure those photos are current.
The Mercedes-Benz W124 E class is one of those most revered Mercedes models due to its reliability, timeless appearance and ability to withstand punishment. No surprise then that this particular model was a favorite amongst cab drivers around the world. Here we have a rarely seen in the US version for sale, a rather basic 230E with a 4 speed manual.
The seller states:
Up for auction is a RARE 1990 Mercedes-Benz 230E W124 Gray Market Car with a 4 speed manual transmission and 4 cylinder engine. This car was imported from Belgium and has had the same Owner and was shipped to the U.S.A when the owner moved to the states. This car is in great condition inside and out and has been very well maintained.
The VIN for this car is WDB1240231B158867. We had to put all #1 in at the top of the ad because this is a european VIN.
This car is gray with black leather interior, it has a power sunroof, power mirrors, A/C, heated mirrors, woodgrain, drivers airbag, locking glove box, 15″ factory hubcap wheel covers with Michelin Energy MX4V tires with around 85% good tread left on the tires. The car has a custom Alpine CD player and rear JBL speakers mounted. It also has a Sidewinder alarm and 2 keys. The car comes with all the books and owners manuals from the original owner. The car is the color Anthracite with black leather. The car runs and drives very well, the motor and transmission are 100%. The car does not shake, vibrate or pulsate while driving it is a nice tight driving car.
The clutch pedal sticks sometimes and releases slowly and its really nothing major. The car has only 92,590 miles and many more to go.
In an era of SUVs and minivans, the estate, or station wagon, is fast becoming a less favored mode of transport. One manufacturer has stayed true to this body style since 1978: Mercedes-Benz. This clean, low mileage W124 E320 wagon is my favorite of the breed and perhaps one of the best engineered, as well. Rarely do we see Mercedes-Benz wagons with such low mileage but here’s a chance to bid on a classic.
The seller states:
This is a really nice 1995 E320 wagon that has been in California all its life. It was bought new by an older lady in Los Angeles. She kept the car for just over 11 years and put only about 35,000 miles on it in that time. Her daughter acquired the car in 2007 and it has been in the Bakersfield area since then. This car was built in September of 1995; making it one of the last w224 cars to be built. This was also the year of any U.S. model Mercedes wagon until 1998. Unfortunately, 1998 was also the first year Mercedes began using the new V6 motor. So, 1995 was the last year Mercedes made a wagon with the better in-line 6-cylinder motor. Since a new body style was introduced for 1996, this was also the last of the over-engineered E-Class cars. Just like the 1993 190-Class, the 1999 S-Class, and the 2002 SL-class, this car was the last of its kind, and they truly don’t build them like they used to. By Mercedes’ own admission, they do not over-engineer these cars any more. This car is the last of the best.
This car has as much cargo space as a mid-size SUV with the middle and rear seats folded. It has the third row seat which makes it a true 7 passenger vehicle.
Before AMG became fully integrated into the Mercedes-Benz family, along came the W124 chassis 500E/E500. While relatively tame looking, the trained eye will notice the larger 16″ alloy wheels and flared fenders. That’s just a prelude to the collaboration between Porsche and Mercedes that yielded perhaps one of the best sport sedans ever.
This is a 1994 Mercedes 500E with 45296 original miles. This car is in excellent condition inside and out. Car comes with the original manuals and service booklet with dealer stamps, and original window sticker (see photo). This is a rare and interesting car, a joint venture between Mercedes and Porsche, Porsche did the suspension work, has yielded one of the greatest Mercedes’ of all time.
My father owned a 1992 400E and while he owned it, I happened to drive a 1992 500E that was for sale. The difference was astounding. To say this car had God’s own suspension would be an understatement. I’m not sure how Porsche tuned it to be comfortable yet so controlled simultaneously.
As far as Mercedes-Benz sedans go, their resale values tend to lag behind coupes and convertibles. The asking price of $29,000 is certainly strong, but right in line with the condition and mileage. Plus, this is the desirable facelift version which was the last year the 500E/E500 was sold in the US. While I’ve seen some ultra low mileage examples listed in the $30k and up range, $29 large is about all you’d want to spend, in my opinion, for one of Mercedes’/Porsche’s finest.
With the reintroduction of the Mercedes-Benz E Class Coupe for 2010, let’s take a moment and pour over its direct forebear. Here is a clean, relatively low mileage 1995 E320 coupe, which represents the final year of production for the W124 chassis. According to The Standard Catalog of Mercedes-Benz, only 1,798 Coupes were produced for 1995, which was amazingly higher than production was in 1994. While there were less W124 Convertibles produced during the same time frame, open top versions seem easier to find in mint condition and appear to change hands rather frequently, given the short supply. Powered by the ubiquitous M104 3.2 liter inline six, this coupe is capable of providing many more miles of effortless, reliable transport.
1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 Coupe, 88K, Black/ grey leather. Never smoked in, southern car, always garaged, no rust, mint condition. Clean CarFax. Cost new $63K.
Upon seeing this ad, I had a suspicion that $14,500 seemed high for an asking price, but I had not looked up the value of W124 coupes lately. Sure enough, after consulting three pricing sources, Edmunds, Kelley Blue Book and NADA, my suspicions were correct. High retail value from these three pricing services was $5,086, $7,150 and $8,912 respectively. Granted, the ad is not very descriptive and there is no telling whether the car is fully documented or if it is an original owner vehicle. If this were the case, I could see the value of this creeping more towards the $10,000 mark, given the mileage and the fact that you don’t see these on the market every day. All of this aside, it is nice to see a well preserved, late model W124 coupe out there, as these cars are simply timeless.
Here’s a gorgeous , with only 8800 miles and a $43k buy-it-now:
quote from seller’s eBay listing:
1994 Mercedes E500 finished in Pearl Black over Parchment Leather interior. This ONE OWNER example is being presented in excellent, garage kept condition. Fully loaded with all options from the factory, this E500 is considered the original AMG Mercedes as it was a joint collaboration between Mercedes and Porsche, it carries with it very subtle OEM body treatments such as front and rear fender flares and enhanced grill. Purchased new in 12/94 from California dealer, this car has only seen 8800 miles and always stored in a climate controlled garage. All service documents from factory Authorized Mercedes dealer, all books, tools, and keys! No accidents or paintwork and is 100% all original as it came from the factory. Considered the lowest mileage E500 in the country known to exist. A collectible car with the comfort and ease of a daily driver!
While there aren’t many E500’s with this kind of mileage — after all, most were driven by wealthy executives who didn’t care about miles — $43k sounds very optimistic. Maybe there are gold bars in the glove box, but I think in this economy, the seller is really holding out for the one in a million (or billion?) that might justify the price for the miles.
