1993 Mercedes-Benz 320CE Cabriolet (W124)

Complete with ultra-rare factory supplied Wiesmann hard-top; sensible mileage example with loads of service history and recent expenditure; driven from Kent to the sale

Sold new to an industrial supply company (PCT Group Sales Ltd) in Glasgow in August 1993, they were to remain its registered keeper for the next seven years. A change of keeper in 2000 transfered ownership to one of the company directors - quite possibly the person who had been using the car all along, and multiple bills on file confirm that PCT continued to be invoiced for its regular maintenance and service.

Although the service book is absent, a complete set of invoices and service history from this period is on file, with no fewer than 19 services recorded to 2014 by which time the car had covered 85,000 miles - effectively all in the hands of the same owner.

It was sold in 2014 to a gentleman from Stone in Staffordshire through Cheshire Classic Benz for £17,850. He had the car serviced and maintained by Merx Independent Mercedes Ltd - with bills on file confirming the work done during this period.  

In 2017, it changed hands again, this time through Jeremy Wade of Market Drayton for £12,000 with some 104,000 miles showing, our vendor acquiring it earlier this year....which makes four former keepers on the V5C, although we suspect that two of them were effectively the same person.

He has recently submitted it for an MOT, which shows two minor advisories for slightly worn suspension arm pins. This expires in September 2022. The car was also fully serviced with filters, plugs, antifreeze and oils and has now covered some 104,900 miles to date.

The car is badged Sportline, which suggests slightly lower and firmer suspension and it comes with an extremely rare Wiesmann hard-top, beautifully trimmed inside and light enough for two people to remove easily. The power hood works as it should and the hood cover is in good condition, with just two very minor wear marks on the sides - barely noticeable. The leather interior is also in very good order.

Driven over 150 miles to the sale, this top-spec W124 Cabriolet is a rare beast, especially so with its desirable factory-supplied hard top which is so elegant and easy to use.
