1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 Coupe

Another week on eBay, another car turns up that makes me wish I had extra garage space and funds. Of all the W124 Mercedes-Benzes, the coupe was my favorite. The rarity of them along with the classic pillarless profile just wins me over. Knowing this car would keep trucking for many more miles due to the reliable 3.2 inline six is just icing on the cake. Here’s a clean example with 76,000 miles out on the left coast.

The seller states:

Very rare 1995 Mercedes E320 coupe. 1 of 307 made for the last year of the w124 series. The car is Black Pearl with black leather. It was purchased (leased) new in 1995 at the Beverly Hills Mercedes. At the end of the lease it was turned back into Mercedes with 34009 miles on it, at this time MBZ of San Francisco purchased it and certified it in April of 1998. It was sold to a gentleman from Marin Ca. who was dating a salesperson at the dealership and he had the vehicle for 10 years until I bought from him, so the Mercedes has never left the state of California. It has been perfectly maintained! It amazingly solid without even a rattle after 16 years, last of the hand made Mercedes!

According to NADA, clean retail for a 1995 E320 coupe is hovering around $8,500, Kelley Blue Book is at about $7,800. The buy it now price seems just a tad high, but honestly, if I was in the market, I wouldn’t hesitate putting $10k down on something like this, given it’s history, condition and rarity. The convertibles are nice, but the last of the W124 coupes are the rarest of the bunch and are fast disappearing. Hopefully this one finds a good home.

    Looks like it’s gone. Not surprising, a very sweet example. Now if it were a Sportline…even more drool inducing.

    I would *never* pay over blue book for a classic car. Then you’re immediately under water.

    Any older car is going to need a good amount of work, otherwise it probably wouldn’t be for sale.

    I made that mistake once on a “cream puff” that was even inspected. The only thing that saved me at the end was cash for clunkers. 🙂 (It zeroed out five years of depreciation.)

    Sellers always assume the best and think their car is rare.
