One quick look at this late model W124 and you might mistake it for any other normal E-class of the era due to its rather sublime Smoke Silver hue. Such is how good this color is at hiding those wide front fenders, bodywork which will tip the enthusiast off into knowing this isn’t your normal E-class. No, this is one of a few of the facelifted E500s which made its way stateside before taking a bow three short model years in. This example for sale in Georgia just crossed the 20,000 mile mark, quite remarkable for a car which screams “drive me.” Been on the hunt for a mint condition example of this legend? This one is worth a closer look, then.

You are bidding on a 1994 Mercedes 500E (VIN WDBEA36E4RB993185)
This W124 Mercedes is in extraordinary original, unaltered, condition with only 21,735 miles. The car retains all its original paint (702 Smoke Silver) with flawless original Parchment (tan) interior along with all its original glass, including windshield. I am not exaggerating when I say the car is flawless.
To start, the interior has not one tear, rip or stain. The driver’s seat is very firm with no creases. The headliner is unblemished with no sags and the door pockets are excellent with no peeling material. All the wood is unblemished with no cracks or scratches. The original paint has tremendous gloss and depth and the front end has no rock chip damage. The trunk and battery area are spotless with no battery acid damage. Also, there are no stains, rips or tears on any of the trunk carpet.
This 500E has been garaged all its life and retains its original window sticker, original sales contract, along with all its books, receipts, manuals and keys. I am the third owner of this 500E which was originally sold in California. There have been no accidents or damage of any kind in this car’s history.
Mechanically, this 500E needs nothing and has outstanding performance. The upper and lower engine wiring harness have been inspected and show no flaws or dilapidation. A recent service has been performed with all the fluids changed…engine/oil, radiator, transmission and brake fluid. The car has no leaks and nothing on this 500E needs attention. There are no dry rotted rubber seals/weather stripping anywhere on the car. The engine pad does not sag and has not deteriorated.
I have tried my best to give an accurate description of this car, but the best way to describe this 500E would be to say it is basically a brand new, unaltered, car due to the low mileage and excellent past care. I have taken many detail photos of this car, but I was limited to what I could list. If there is some aspect of this car that someone wants to see, please do not hesitate to call/contact me and I will send whatever is needed or answer any question (770)361-3127. This car is for sale locally, by private owner, so I reserve the right to end the auction at any time. I will release the clear Georgia title as soon as funds clear account.
Bidding has already crested $30,000 and the reserve has not yet been met. For years, this was a super sedan that flew under the radar, but no more. The few that made their way to these shores are highly prized by collectors and recent bidding on low mileage examples has reflected this. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see another $10,000 eked out by the time the auction ends. Whether that’s enough to buy the car, who knows?
