Let me apologize in advance for the poor photos. I didn’t take them and they clearly aren’t doing the seller any favors by shooting directly into a sunset. So this thing is right hand drive and diesel all while sporting six doors like it’s totally normal. From the looks of it, everything seems to be totally OEM quality like a regular W124. The middle row sports three seats as well as the rear so this is a true eight seater sedan that you shouldn’t have any problem stuffing eight bodies into just for the laughs. In my research, it seems like most of the W124 six doors that I found are right hand drive located in Great Britain. So my educated guess tells me that maybe they made these to skirt around some kind of taxation? It just seems odd that Mercedes would make tooling to make smaller doors, a new floor pan, longer driveshaft, crash testing, and then only make 776 of them. Maybe someone knows why exactly these exist? I’m open to any information out there.

The seller is asking €8,900 ($9,883) which doesn’t seem crazy for a W124 diesel, but once you buy it you are basically stuck with it. No sane person out there is going to want a six door, right hand drive car for a decent chunk of money. Another thing is that I have no idea where this car is actually located. The eBay ad says it’s in London, the plates in the photos are Hungarian and the ad is written in German. So if you and your spouse are suddenly expecting sextuplets and don’t want to give up your W124 diesel, this might be an option for you.

  1. “Das Auto steht in Ungarn” = The car is in Hungary.

    Binz was the D-B approved manufacturer of this car. They had a history of converting Mercedes cars into wagons, ambulances, hearses, limos, etc. – including the previous generation W123 sedans.

    The Binz long wheelbase, six door W124 was built for both the taxi and limousine/executive market in both diesel and gasoline versions. A standard but not completely finished W124 sedan was delivered to Binz for their handiwork in extending the structure. The ad is correct in stating that 776 of the 250D version were completed by Binz; a total of 2,342 W124 long wheelbase six door cars were produced between 1990 and 1994 and the majority were gasoline and not diesel models.

    There were some long wheelbase W124s produced for the limo market by builders other than Binz; how many is unknown and they were not approved by D-B.
