1993 Mercedes-Benz 300CE

I personally think one of the more overlooked Mercedes-Benz that is still relatively affordable is the W124 coupe. It’s starting to get in that sweet spot of becoming old enough to be classic, but all the equipment is still modern enough, both safety and amenities, that you are perfectly fine driving it everyday. Nothing will kill you in terms of maintenance or repairs, and even since it is a W124 at the end of the day, it shouldn’t be that unreliable at all. What’s not to like?

PPW Motorcars is pleased to offer this beautiful European 1994 Mercedes-Benz 300CE, which wears a stunning Jet Black over an untouched original Black Leather Interior, which shows nearly as nice as the day it was new! Very few of these vehicles were ordered in Black/Black, most have some fault in specification such as an unattractive interior or exterior color, this is the absolute best spec, period. Living in Colorado, the vehicle never saw rain or snow and was used sparingly, which accounts for the fantastic and original condition of the interior. For the prospective Colorado buyer, this vehicle has all original equipment and is current on inspections (stickers on plates are current). Setting this vehicle apart from others, aside from rarity and power is the wonderful exterior condition. The exterior is fantastic as well and shows as a car with 30,000 miles may, but the interior shows as a car with half the age and 15,000 miles. The vehicle was well maintained from new but just to be sure it was ready for the next owner we performed a major service on the car to ensure the next owner gets a completely turnkey car. We are proud to offer what we believe to be the best examples of the coveted and hand assembled 300CE Mercedes available today and would happily put this car next to any other for comparison. Offered to the collector, enthusiast, or investor who appreciates the magnificent investment potential of this magnificent motorcar! Bid with confidence-you will not be disappointed in this truly amazing motorcar!

This example up for the sale in St. Louis is a pre-facelift 300CE that still has the older front fascia but with the updated M104 3.2 liter inline-six. If you dig the older 1980s styling, this is the year for you. Black over black is as classic as it gets, and for over 140,000 miles, it looks relatively nice. As always with the M104, check the rear of the head for oil leaks and inspect the wiring harnesses, but other than that, you are pretty much set to go. Yes, little things broken or not working might drive you nuts, so always make sure to give every single piece a good inspection for buying.

The ask of just under $10,000 seems like a good deal here. I don’t see these going down in value anytime soon unless you pile miles on it, so these are basically parked money. Will these be $25,000 in a couple years? Honestly, the very best examples will be. We’ve already seen that. I don’t think that in the cards for higher mileage cars like this one, but if you are just looking for a solid driver for not a ton of money, tough to go wrong here.

  1. “What’s not to like?”
    The transmission of course! I think the thing to do is wait for one to come up with a beat/worn/busted transmission, buy it on the cheap, and do a manual swap. Not that it is easy to find a manual that will work on these cars, but I have seen it done once or twice over the years. Best plan would be to first find the manual, then find the project to drop it in.

  2. Andrew,

    Don’t forget about the AC evaporators that will likely leak in the future if it hasn’t been replaced. A fun (sarcasm) 20-24 hour job on flat rate time, I believe.

    Beautiful car, however. The miles make it a bit sketchy, but otherwise the ask isn’t unreasonable.

  3. Love this body style!

  4. Love this subsection of the W124. Updated rear, engine and interior, but still with the 80’s front end. Might be my favorite. I’d be seriously looking if I had the garage space.

  5. Lovely cars.

    Had two w124 coupes. One was a black on black 94 e320 with OZ wheels and a modern steering wheel that was berated here on this blog. Pffft.

    Worst thing about driving these cars is the gearing.

    2.65 rear ratio and the transmission ALWAYS started in 2nd gear (unless you manually put it in 1st).

    Prefer the facelift cars of course.
