1994 Mercedes-Benz E320 Cabriolet (W124)

Face-lift example from 22 year lady ownership with scope for minor cosmetic improvement boasting a decent spec including desirable Sportline suspension

Supplied new by Brunswick Croydon Limited, Mercedes main dealer in November 1994, this elegant Mercedes C124 (W124) series Cabriolet comes to us in face-lift E320 guise and is finished in Azurite Blue, with matching blue Mohair soft-top and sits upon its original 15” eight-hole alloy wheels and was ordered with Sportline suspension making it rather desirable.

Under the bonnet, we find the 3.2-litre M104.992 inline straight-six petrol engine which develops 220bhp driving the rear wheels via four-speed automatic transmission with Sports and Economy mode.

Inside the cabin, we see beige leather trim with manually adjustable seats, automatic seat belt butlers (passenger side appears not to work), walnut trim, electric windows, glass heated rear screen, electric soft-top, heated front seats, electric mirrors, Blaupunkt Oslo RCC24 radio/cassette player, central arm rest, wind deflector, fitted car cover and head light wash/wipe.

The car shows 104,511 miles and presents largely well bar a few marks to the soft-top, some holes to the interior soft-top lining and the usual W124 series corrosion to the front wings but nothing too scary, but enough to warrant some thought and planning perhaps. Starting promptly, the car appeared to run as it should and moved around with ease for these images and video, with the electric roof working correctly.

The history file includes the V5C revealing just three former keepers to our lady owner who has enjoyed the car for the last 22 years, the owner’s manual and service booklet recording an impressive 15 stamps inc. PDI – 14 of which have all been by Mercedes main dealers, the last by BJH Motors, BMW & Mercedes specialists of Worcester in October 2010 at 96,558 miles suggesting limited mileage has been covered in the last 12 years.

The file also includes a small selection of invoices for parts and service work dating back to 2000 along with 21 old MOTs and current MOT valid until the end of July this year which recorded just one advisory for OSR shock absorber. Invoices of note include a recent £1,872 spend on a new roof module in June 2021 and lube service in August 2019.

An ideal use and improve example with the right engine and desirable  Sportline suspension from long term lady ownership at sensible money.
