Following on to the E320 Cabriolet we featured last week, here is another clean, low mileage 1995 example for sale in Maryland. This particular car has had both its head gasket and wiring harness replaced, two important maintenance issues with this model. For those in the colder climates, summer is just around the corner. What better way to enjoy it than with a cruise in this stately cabriolet?

In an era when SUVs are the order of the day for manufacturers looking to expand profitability, it’s says something that Mercedes-Benz still sees fit to import the estate versions of the E class, in both E350 and E63 trim. There are still those of us out there who merely seek carrying capability without all the off-road fuss. This E320 Estate for sale in Florida is a great example of a car that gives you SUV carrying capability with the comfort and economy of a sedan.

The mid-1990s were a turning point for Mercedes-Benz. Not only was there a change in model nomenclature, but more daring styling began to take hold and a wealth of new models, such as the SLK, CLK and ML class began to appear. The E class Cabriolet was the first four-seater convertible in Mercedes’ lineup since the demise of the 280SE in 1972. While thoroughly modern underneath, this was one of the final holdouts of 1980s design, barring the G-wagen, in the company’s lineup. Today, the W124 Cabriolet is the most highly prized E class of the time, alongside the high-performance 500E/E500. It may be in the middle of winter from where you are reading this, but now may be a great time to pick up a drop-top E class.

1994 Mercedes-Benz E320

If you haven’t noticed yet, here at GCFSB we tend to prefer wagons (or estate cars as you may know them) over sport utility vehicles. One of the reasons is that so many good five-doors have emerged from Germany over the years. The first ever Mercedes-Benz estate built in numbers, the W123 T, or T-Modell, as it was known, was a hit. Its successor, the W124, has been equally revered for durability, luxury and competence. It’s hard to find a W124 estate in good shape, so whenever a good one comes along, like this late model 1994 E320 for sale in Vermont, I sit up and take note.

Selling my 1994 E320 Wgn. The car is in immaculate condition inside and out with 83k miles. This car has never seen a winter and has always been stored in a heated garage, there is not one spec of rust anywhere, including the brakes and the undercarriage. You will not find a cleaner one anywhere. It has the third row seats. It comes with the Mercedes carpeted floor mats as well as Weathertech rubber mats and a Weathertech cargo liner. Brand new tires. It has an iPod adapter wired into the factory stereo that works perfectly. Everything works! Including the power headrests and power telescoping steering wheel. Engine runs like new, the transmission shifts perfectly, the suspension feels like new and the interior looks like new. NON SMOKER!! The previous owner was a VP at Merrill Lynch Investments and this car was stored at his summer home here in VT, he was a meticulous individual which is shown by the condition of this car. I took as many pics as I could, if you would like more just let me know. If you bid on this car you will NOT be disappointed, it is as described, IMMACULATE. There is no reserve! Thanks for bidding and good luck!

Location- Barre, VT

The odometer may be slightly higher as I am driving this car. I reserve the right to end this auction at any time as I do have it for sale locally as well. Any shipping is YOUR responsibility.

For a car that has lived in Vermont, the fact that it has seen little winter action and has always been garaged is rather remarkable. The majority of us GCFSB’ers have either resided or currently reside in the Northeast, so we’re familiar with how difficult it is to keep a car in good shape as the years pass. Kudos to the seller for his fastidiousness. This is a very attractive buy at $7,500. One thing worth checking would be to see whether the wiring harness was replaced, as this was a known issue with the M104 engined W124. Other than that, if this car checks out to be as good as it looks, I doubt it will last long.

1994 Mercedes-Benz E320 Cabriolet

The W124 was Mercedes-Benz’s bread and butter car for a decade, offering a variety of bodystyles and engines to suit just about every need. Aside from the 500E/E500 über sedan, the Cabriolet is one of the most highly prized of the lot. Introduced late into the production cycle, these were the first four seat convertibles in twenty years from Mercedes. Pricey when new, these open roofed tourers command strong money today. They aren’t the flashiest, quickest or most exciting of the four-seat convertible genre, but they offer legendary build quality, smooth power delivery from the inline six and timeless looks that emits an air of old money. This silver E320 Cabriolet comes to us from our reader Allen and is on offer at his dealership, Encore Motors in Macon, Georgia.

This is becoming a rare bird. This is a 1994 E320 4 place convertible in Brilliant Silver with black leather and a black soft top with a glass window. There were only a few thousand of these cars imported to the US during 1992 and 1995. They are fast appreciating, and great fun to drive with that huge open interior. These are based on the reliable E320 sedans, but with nicer trim, and of course, that fabulous convertlble top. This car is mostly original, the paint has been color sanded and buffed by our best local shop, and the interior is great in black leather. The only major change from 1994 is a contemporary Pioneer single slot CD radio with a changer in the trunk. I do have the original radio as well. It’s just turned 120k miles. It has a newish convertible top, which looks new (careful, these are VERY expensive, so don’t think you can cheap out on a beater….), and the top hydraulics, over the last three or four years, have all been dealt with by the same shop (again–check this on others!). No issues with that or the AC, which is ice cold, and in the right direction. It has just been inspected by our best indie shop and given his blessing. I also put on a new set of Michelins about 400 miles ago, I have all the books and pouch, two master keys, and some good records over the last 10 years or so. Cars like this are so much fun, and make so much economic sense.

Junkers that are rough and need everything are still $6-7,500, and the absolute garage queens (which you can’t drive and enjoy) are now $18-22,000, so this car is quite reasonably priced. Call me and you’ll soon enjoy those early mornings and nights cruising with the top down! I would challenge you to find a nicer, more unique, and fun convertible in this price range. A very desirable and classy car, for very little money.

Even though it has over 100,000 miles, these are stout machines that can survive for much longer if taken care of properly. I concur with the seller that this example is reasonably priced. I’ve seen a few tired W124 Cabriolets with six figure mileage advertised for less money, but which haven’t been presented as well. As they say, buy the best that you can afford. To fix one of these won’t be cheap and buying a well sorted one like this from a reputable seller is always a wise decision. Those interested in this classic open roofed Benz can contact the seller, Allen at (478) 743-7322 or via email at allenman@earthlink.net. Good luck with the sale, Allen!

Convertible Week: 1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 Cabriolet

The Mercedes-Benz W124 brought the four-place cabriolet back to the Mercedes-Benz lineup after a 20 year hiatus. This 1995 E320 cabriolet for sale in Mississippi marks the last year for this model, which would be replaced a couple years later by the CLK cabriolet. For those planning on beach time this summer, these stout open roofed Benzes are a great way to enjoy al fresco motoring with three of your friends.

This is not your average 1995 E320 Cab! This is an above average Collectors car that will only appreciate in value over time! We found this car from our owners friend and neighbor! On a 10 scale its a solid 8.7! Very nice car, clean and serviced! Hard to find a car of this caliber for this price! These cars were hand built in 95 and are very rare in the market! It MSRP’d for over $79,000 in ’95.

These open roofed E classes have commanded strong values over the years, and this particular example represents a shot at getting one with reasonable miles for a decent price. It’s easy to find E320 cabriolets with this kind of mileage for well over $20,000. I’d say with a tiny bit of negotiation, someone will be getting a good deal here.

1994 Mercedes-Benz E320 Coupe

Maybe I’m getting old, but I yearn quite often for the Mercedes-Benzes from the 1980s and 1990s. Having grown up in a family that had a 190E 2.6 and a 400E, both of 1992 vintage, I miss the tank-like quality of these cars. These cars always struck me as interesting since they weren’t a boring drive, but didn’t have much in the way of sporting intentions. After driving my parent’s 2000 C280 on a trip home this weekend, the merits of these older Mercs are clear. Thirteen years and 105,000 miles never felt so good.

One of my favorite and most overlooked Benzes from the 1990s is the W124 coupe. Sold in small numbers stateside, they aren’t very flashy for a two-door, but have a simple elegance about them which exudes good taste. This E320 coupe for sale in Illinois is a low mileage survivor that personifies personal luxury.

1994 Mercedes-Benz E320 Coupe on AutoTrader

Rare 1994 Mercedes E320 Coupe, all options, automatic climate control, seat belt assist front seats, power antenna, premium sound, sunroof, Mercedes factory phone. It is hard to find E320 Coupes. Many Convertibles are listed but a coupe is very rarely up for sale. The engine and trasmission run great and shift seamlessly. The interior and all wood is in excellent condition inside this vehicle. Even the trunk mat is clean with no stains, A/C ice cold, always garaged, looks & drives great. Must see, interior like new, title in hand, well maintained.

As a general rule of thumb, the convertibles and 500E/E500 über sedans are the most highly valued W124s. The coupes can bring a little bit more than the estates, and the estates a bit more than the sedans. Since there were so few sold here, the coupes are fairly hard to come across. Nevertheless, $10,000 to $12,000 about the high mark for these cars, barring an exceptional car that might have around 20,000 to 30,000 miles. The 1995 E320 Estate we featured last week sold for $9,600, so I’d say were somewhere up around the $10,000 mark or so as a realistic value for this E320.

1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 Estate

Wagon Week may be over here at GCFSB, but for me, I’ve always got five-doors on my mind. One of my favorite five-doors happens to be the W124 E class. While maybe not as utilitarian as its predecessor, the W123 estate, the W124 had the same rock solid build quality wrapped in slightly more modern sheet metal. This E320 estate for sale in San Francisco represents the final year for the W124. While it’s fairly common to find a few low mileage cabriolets and even coupes and sedans, many of the five-door E320s were used as intended – as a workhorse. Finding a mint one like this is a real treat.

Widely popular and very few in supply with low mileage. The 124 E class wagon is one of the best built Mercedes Benz wagons ever made. Sold new on November 14, 1994 San Francisco European Motors Mercedes Benz. Serviced at the dealer with maintenance booklet routinely stamped. This car has been well maintained through out its history. Garaged and in excellent condition overall. This car has never left the Bay Area.

Recently last month, I have repaired many of the major items that are common replacement issues on E class wagons:

*New head gasket
*New main wire harness
*New radiator
*New water pump
*New thermostat
*New coolant tank
*New rear tail gate shocks
*Fluids serviced

All of the major repairs have been performed to the highest standard by a Mercedes Independent shop. Receipts and records will be included with the sale. Car runs excellent and you can drive it home. AC blows cold but center vents not blowing cold air but cold air blows thru side vents fine. Outside temp reading not working. Car has good tread. Tires are Michelin. Brakes are good. Passes smog no problem. All of the electronics are working fine. Windows, door locks, speedo, odometer etc. Transmission shifts smooth and crisp. Email for more info. Clean title in hand.

With the all important wiring harness issue taken care of, along with a few other major repairs, this E320 looks like a pretty solid bet for someone seeking one of these modern classics. With no reserve, I’d suspect this E320 estate might pull somewhere between $6,500 and $8,500, as the W124 estates aren’t quite reaching W123 territory just yet.

1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 Cabriolet

It never ceases to amaze me how many low mileage W124 E320 Cabriolets are out there knocking around in the streets. Here comes another one brought to our attention by one of our readers that is for sale in San Francisco. For those who want the fun of an open roofed vehicle with robustness and durability that is hard to match, you don’t have to look much further than these modern classics. They aren’t the fastest cars out there, not the most flashy, but garner a great deal of respect from those familiar with them and passers by.

Rare opportunity to own a modern classic 1995 Mercedes Benz E320 Cabriolet in triple black with only 28k miles! One of the lowest mile E320 cabriolets cars for sale in the country. Mercedes has not made a four seater convertible since the 1970s. This is destined to be a collectible and Mercedes enthusiasts know the value. The last of the hand made Mercedes. If you have searched for the perfect example of an E320 cabriolet this is the one. I have owned many nice cars and this one has always received many compliments on my rare outings with the car. Short trips to Napa or to the local coffee shop on a nice day.

This car was sold new on December 2, 1995 from Sutherland Motors LTD Spokane, Washington. Never driven in harsh weather. Brought to San Francisco and subsequently sold. Purchased thereafter from Monterey Jaguar in Monterey, California. I have garaged the car and maintained it very well. Only driven less than 400 miles in the past year. It just sits in the garage waiting for a nice day. The car is all original and stock condition. The way you would want to purchase one. The top is excellent with no rips or tears. Paint is excellent with on small ding on left front fender and tiny soft ding below gas tank lid. The leather seats are amazing condition. No rips or tears and the drivers bolster is not even worn at all. See the pics.

She runs and drives excellent. Drive it anywhere with confidence. Complete with owners manual and booklets. Email for more info. Clean title hand. Seller reserves right to cancel auction early.

A few of the E320 Cabriolets we’ve featured have been offered at insane prices, sometimes deep into the $30,000 range. The seller is smart by letting this one go at no reserve. I’d suspect bidding might reach close to or at $25,000, but not much more. One thing that would be good to note for potential buyers is whether the car has the original wiring harness, as these cars were known to have issues with them degrading over time. Then again, you never know with these things if the right buyers happen to get in the (virtual) room.
