It feels as if Mercedes-Benz and diesel engines have been inexorably tied together since the Big Bang. In the mid 1930s, Mercedes pioneered this engine in the 260D, one of the world’s first diesel engined passenger cars. Ever since, the company has continued on with the technology, advancing the art of the oil burner. By the time 1995 rolled around, there were few diesels in Mercedes’ US product lineup, the final year W124 E-class being one of them. By the turn of the century, diesels would disappear from these shores until the E320 CDI would appear in 2005. Most of these diesel engined E-classes rack up high mileage, a testament to their durability and comfort for highway motoring. This 1995 E300 Diesel is one of the few good examples left, with just over 70,000 miles on the odometer.

Here is a nice opportunity to buy a well kept and all original and premium example of a classic Mercedes E 300 D. It’s a true one owner that was just traded at Lancaster Mercedes and it’s lived it’s entire life at it’s owners country club home right here in Lititz, PA. Read on for a full description.
Mechanically this Diesel engine starts up smooth with no smoke, no blow by when warm. Good smooth power and shifts. Straight alignment and the steering is tight. Brakes also feel good without pulsing or pulling. The tires are matching Michelins with 70% tread remaining. Exhaust, tie rods, lighting and everything else for PA specks is above par and it has a current State inspection. I don’t have any service history for this car, but it is a local 1-owner car and recently traded in for a new CDI and if it’s quite possible for you to take some time and track it down. Undercarriage is clean without any rust or damage. This car is as good as you get mechanically.
Cosmetically it is about as nice as you will find. Clean straight body panels and paint. It’s never had any previous paintwork done and the history report is clean. Shines very well and was just professionally detailed. It may have stone chip or two but there is nothing outside of those that you could call damage. No dings, dents, scratches, rust bubbles or issues…absolutely nothing. Wheels are all spotless and free of curb rash or corrosion and they also have their original paint. The interior is very nice. Leatherette is all plush without wear out or cracks, carpets, headliner, door panels are all very clean without damage. All options are working correctly including the A/C, sunroof and power windows and antenna. The only two flaws I can honestly say there are; is the rear bumper drivers side corner has a scuff and the drivers side mirror surround (rubber) is cracking (must have had a window on that side of the garage and let the UV rays in to damage it. I could have easily repaired these items for $300 but I wanted to be honest and show the originality of this vehicle, it is not a restored one, it’s the real deal. This is certainly an impressive car I’m very pleased to say even the pickiest Mercedes aficionado will be happy to own this vehicle.

Apart from the legendary W123, this W124 Diesel could be one of the most durable Benzes of the modern era. It’s not powerful, with only 134 hp and 155 lb ft of torque on tap from the OM606 diesel, but it will stick around for the long haul. This E300 has barely scratched the surface on what its capable of in terms of mileage, so if its a commuter you are seeking that has a bit of luxury and style, there are few better choices. Good, late model W124s are running in the $7,000 to $10,000 territory these days. Whether the diesel engine will bring a premium depends on the buyer, but I can’t remember when I’ve seen one of these oil burners with mileage like this.
