Seller Submission: 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE

This next car comes to DT as a seller submission from Sean C who writes: I love wagons and I love ’80s/’90s boxy Euro cars (I know you like Saabs). This is my first Mercedes wagon after many Volvos and Toyotas and Fords. To say this vehicle is an upgrade from every other wagon I’ve owned is an understatement. This was THE big step up. I feel like a king whenever I drive it. Problem is with the pandemic, I am not driving it and I want a motorcycle so I’m selling my dream car—my forever wagon—my 1990 300TE: I’m in L.A. and it’s available for a test drive. Find this 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE W124 bidding for $5,500 reserve-not-met with 9 days to go, located in Los Angeles, CA.

From the seller:

E-Class Touring wagon (T124) – They never made cars this solid again! From when engineers ran Mercedes, the final evolution of the famed W123 series. M103 non-interference engine + wire harness are proven reliable (NOT biodegradable like later models). Doors close with a deep thunk like a bank vault. Baller.

Service records from new. Lifetime California car—not even a speck of rust. Never smoked in. 3rd owner here. Owner for 1st 20 years was the dealership; 2nd owner was 96-year-old man. Babied all her life!

Classic boxy look by famed designer Bruno Sacco, near-pristine vintage condition, ice cold AC (fully charged in 2019 with R12), all service up to date ($3,300 in receipts from Jan. 2020), new radiator, motor mounts, valve cover gasket, power antenna, power everything, self-leveling suspension, soft touch auto-close hatch, pristine blue MB Tex, new hatch struts, 4 brand new Michelins, smogged, runs and drives super smooth.

I would not hesitate to drive this anywhere—to any destination in North America—she’s ready.

Extras: includes spare Becker cassette stereo (you can convert to Bluetooth), brand new custom car cover, Weathertech cargo mat, new deep pile floor mats all around, 4 keys plus valet key, newly applied Rayno S7 IR / UVA / UVB blocking full carbon-ceramic on all windows, full-size trailer hitch with wiring + MB cover, cargo cover / pet gate, 3rd row seat, removable MB roof rack crossbars, white (body) + gray (lower cladding) touch up paint.

These are becoming highly sought after. You may think you can find another as clean, but this is the one!
