We paid tribute to the W124 Mercees-Benz E-class on Monday. It’s hard to believe it has been three decades since this car was unveiled, as you still see plenty of these cars roaming the roads. A lot of the W124s I run across are run down and seem to be on their last legs, but like the W123 that preceded it, they go from strength to strength. This 300CE coupe for sale in Louisiana is a well preserved example with under 50,000 miles on the clock, making this quite an appealing modern classic.

The 300CE is a modern day businessman’s coupe, in a sense. There’s not much to differentiate it styling wise over its four-door counterpart, but with the pillarless design, it’s graceful in its own conservative way. I tend to prefer the later, facelifted E320 coupes, but it’s rare that you see a 300CE so well preserved and the color combination here is pleasing. The asking price here is strong, but it’s getting harder to find these coupes in good shape, no matter the year. Given what we’ve seen its predecessor, the 300CD, pull in the market lately, I have to think that the W124 isn’t going to be too far behind in value as far as modern classics go. Now, to keep dreaming about that 500E Coupe they never made…
