Clean W124 Wagon: 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300TE

My own personal taste in automobiles can be peculiar at times and I don’t often find cars that are unversally admired by the random people that come and go in my life. However, the W124 chassis Mercedes-Benz might just jump the gap between eclectic tastes of my friends and family…in particular the wagon version is almost universally appreciated, at least from a distance. I think perhaps it is because they had a design that was very advanced for the era and they are known to be rugged. Today’s example has plenty of miles, but it looks in remarkable shape. Find this 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300TE offered for $14,500 in Daly City, CA via craigslist.
