1997 Mercedes-Benz E420

This car sold for an undisclosed offer below the $8,950 Buy It Now on June 24, 2021.

With basically all the attention paid to the E55 AMG when talking about the W210 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, I think sometimes we forget that there was another V8 in the family. Well, technically two V8s with the aging M119 in the E420 and the new kid on the block M113 with the facelift E430. Today, we have one of the best early E420s I think I’ve come across in a long time, and even better, it is painted in Viola Metallic. This won’t last long.

Wow. What a spec on this one. This was well before any E55 was even announced for the US-market, so if you wanted a V8 E-Class in late-1996 and early-1997, this was it. A major factor on this one is obviously the Viola Metallic paint, and given how many of these were silver/tan/grey/black/white, this one is a breath of fresh air. I know not everyone can do purple cars, but I am all for it. Add in just over 57,000 miles, and this one looks like a winner to me.

The Buy It Now price tag of $9,000 seems reasonable given how the market has been, but makes me think twice considering I’ve purchased two E55s for less than that. Still, I think this is an awesome buy and priced reasonable, so it wouldn’t surprise me if it sells fairly soon, if not already sold. Grab it while you can, but I don’t think there is another like it.

    a good price, but I would always hesitate to call when they say “No low ball offers, I know real value of the car.

    We have a never ending stream of shoddy, 200k+ mile, diesel w210s coming in to our shop all the time. It’s so nice to see a w210 that the wheels aren’t falling off of and in such great shape as this one. And in a fantastic color combo to boot!

    Beautiful color! Nice find, Andrew.
    The oval lights always looked odd to me. The color, condition, and motor strength are good enough to override the headlight peculiarities, which is to say, if drive it.
