The W124 E class is revered for being one of the last true Mercedes-Benzes before the bean counters seized the day and started to build cars to a price. It’s curious, then, to think that longtime Mercedes owners trembled when the W123 was replaced by this car. They would be in good hands over the next decade, as first generation E class sedans are still being pressed into service by private owners and taxi drivers the world over. This clean 300TE for sale in Massachusetts is originally a California car. With mileage at just over 100,000, it’s poised to provide the new owner with many more miles of service.

There’s not a lot to go on here from the reader’s description, but from the clear headlamp bezels to seats that look as if they’ve never been sat in, this is one impressive 300TE. With its relocation to New England, the only thing that might be more attractive is if it was equipped with 4Matic all-wheel drive. The asking price of $10,000 is at the high end for a W124 estate, as these cars still lag a bit behind the W123 in terms of value. If this 300TE is as solid as it appears and could be had for around the $8,000 to $8,500 mark, it would be a decent value for someone wanting a durable, practical classic.
