The Mercedes 500E was the top of the line in the Merc E series W124 range. But that’s really an understatement when discussing the 500E. It is a very special car that was actually engineered and built in collaboration with Porsche. It is easily distinguished by it’s wider wheel arches and low, chunky stance.
The owner is listing the car on VWVortex for only $14k. In addition to a nice history of the model, lots of photos, and all the reference links, he also lists standard shipping cost to common ports in the U.S. ranging between $1-2k dollars.
The pictures look pretty good, but you know, I think this would best be inspected in person so you could make an excuse to hang out in Hawaii for a couple of days 😉 Good luck with the sale Brodie!
