1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 Cabriolet on eBay

The below post originally appeared on our site December 9, 2012:

After a two decade hiatus, Mercedes-Benz brought back the four place cabriolet in 1992 with the W124. While convertibles in general are often thought of as somewhat flashy and carefree, the E class cabriolet went about its business in a more conservative, dignified manner. Today, the cabriolet is one of the most desired W124 variants, a point that is made abundantly clear by the number of low mileage examples on the market along with high resale values. This final year, one owner E320 comes to us from our reader Rainier in California.

1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 Cabriolet on eBay

1995 Mercedes E320 Cabriolet. One owner car, Metallic Black exterior with Tan interior. Great condition, have all records of service, 66,750 miles and runs like new as it was a Sunday driver. This was one of the last cars built in November 1995. Seller has the right to end sale when I like. No warranty or refund after sale is complete. $18,995.00 obo

Mint, low mileage E320s can sometimes glance $30,000, with good quality runners ranging between $15,000 to $25,000. The W124 is a stout car, and the cabriolet is no different. Potential buyers should be aware of issues revolving around the wiring harness, as the material used for insulation can decompose over time. A one owner car like this is always attractive, as it helps to mitigate questions with regards to servicing history. For those in the market for a safe, practical young classic that offers a bit of top down flair, these W124 cabriolets are hard to beat.

  1. Another W124! Rule #1 says if you’re going to ask top money for your car you have to provide top photos. Seller didn’t even pay for AutoCheck. On the plus side ad says it’s a 1 owner car.

    Has the wiring harness been changed? He says he has “all the records” but doesn’t list one thing that’s been done to the car.

    The way the ad is written it’s pretty clear the seller is not the owner of the car so does he either not know how to sell a car or is he hiding something?

    Certainly worth a look but the price is easily $4,000.00 too high without all those above questions having been answered.

    When it comes to buying cars I am always suspicious and always care more about what’s not mentioned than by what is.

  2. Who tries to sell a convertible without showing a picture of the car with the top down?

    There isn’t enough information in this ad to say anything other than the asking price is extremely optimistic.

  3. I try to cut some slack for featured listings, I respect GCFSB and would expect their own classifieds to have slightly more integrity than the average ebay or craigslist ad. Let’s focus on the positive! The W124 convertible is a certifiable classic, it’s amazing how they seem to command higher prices than the R129, I guess it’s the rear seats?? On the other hand, these are classic Sunday drivers just as the ad says so clean low mileage examples are relatively plentiful and buyers have lots of choices. This color combo is fine too. Would be cool to see a M119 V8 swap from the 400E/E420.

  4. While chrome wheels aren’t my thing, it looks like a nice, low-mile E320 cabrio. As noted above, there are a number of concerns not addressed, and the quality of the ad (description, details, photos, etc.) is poor. If this listing is coming from a GCFSB reader, they must assuredly have seen numerous posts wherein other GCFSB readers lambasted sellers for lousy detail in the ads…
