1995 Mercedes E320 Wagon AMG 3.6

Warning!

This post is in our archives. Links in this post have been updated to point to similar cars available to bid on eBay.

Here is a  nice transplant conversion. Take one of the superb W124 wagons and pull out the stock 3.2 liter six and drop in place the bored out 3.6 liter 275 horsepower version from the C36 AMG.

The conversion was probably fairly easy as a handful of the AMG built engines were dropped into various iterations of the E class straight from the factory as the E36. The engine looks absolutely at home and very few would guess this wasn’t a stock engine bay.

This car has just under 200,000 miles on the body and the donor engine, pulled from a same year C36, has 115,000.

The car is rust free and looks really clean for a car of its mileage. The deep blue paint looks good and is a suitable color for sleeper of this nature. Surely not as swift or as surprising as some of the recent German uber wagons. A 95 packing close to 300 horsepower is still likely to turn a few heads.

The interior is also clean and comes with the removable dog cage for the rear cargo area as well as the removable rear cargo cover, both are great options to have. Fold down the seats and you have plenty of room for hauling or sleeping.

These wagons have a good following. The ask on this one is $8,500. That might be a bit high for this car with this mileage, a stock E320 wagon in good driver shape can be had for $5,000. It is hard to know what kind of premium that addition of the 3.6 liter adds. All around this looks like a practical car for the family man who longs for an unaffordable E63 wagon, but still wants something fun and unique with authentic AMG pedigree.

    It hauls dogs and ass. Awesome.

    Needs AMG Monoblocks. Otherwise perfect.

    I would love to see it with a full AMG body kit and some period correct AMG wheels. I never know how to value something like this, because you know you couldn’t easily duplicate it for the asking price.

    The mileage on the drivetrain concerns me a little, but as noted, the W124 itself can last quite a while.

    Contrary to the path Paul would take, I’d go back to stock W124 wheels for a sleeper look. Too bad it isn’t beige-on-beige…that would really max out the invisibility factor.

    Interestingly, if you go to the sellers ebay store he has a set of c36 AMG brakes for sale, c36 AMG exhaust and a C36 AMG gauge set…with about 115K I believe.

    I wonder what the story is? did he decontent the wagon? I wouldn’t think the exhaust would have fit a wagon, maybe a section.

    I’d want to know a lot more about the suspension etc before placing a bid – very cool car though.

    No bids at $8,500.

    Yes, it was even relisted….too many questions to buy a car on ebay with a swap – who did the swap? why was it at a dealer? PPI would be a must; love the concept though, if it was closer, I’d go look at it for the wife (she does want a stick wagon though).
