1987 Mercedes-Benz 300E

This post is in our archives. Links in this post may have been updated to point to similar cars available to bid on eBay.

The Mercedes-Benz W124 E-class came in many shapes and styles, from the stately four-seat cabriolet to the muscular Porsche built 500E/E500. After we featured the low mileage 1986 300E last week, I was surprised to see yet another mint example of an early W124 crop up, this time in Florida in the classic combination of Brilliant Silver over blue leather. This car might be 30 years old, but it’s certainly a classic that could be used daily and in the process, provide motoring pleasure hard to match from many modern day machines.

This 300E brings back a lot of memories, as my father’s 400E was the same silver over blue combination. While the 400E was a beast in a straight line, I tend to appreciate the smooth sixes of yore. In addition, there’s something I like about the earlier models with their lack of body cladding. It just looks a bit more basic and I have a soft spot for designs in their purist state. The aforementioned low mileage 1986 300E we saw last week pulled one bid at $7,000. That car had a Buy It Now price of just under $11,000. While this car has lower mileage, the ask is a bit high for an early, six-cylinder W124. The sweet spot seems to be in the $8,000 to $9,000 territory for an E-class such as this one.
