1995,May Mercedes-Benz E320TE Wagon RHD Chassis number:WDB1240922F313455 62,304 miles from new (100,247 Kilometers) Blue Grey Metallic(199) OTR Price £SOLD

Detailed description

If your looking for a practical and versatile classic estate to use everyday this W124 E320TE Wagon could be the perfect choice.Offered for sale in outstanding condition throughout having spent all its life on salt free Japanese roads in a humid climate this totally rust free classic W124 estate is set to provide years of trouble free motoring for its new owner.

This example features a full specification including grey leather incl. electric front seats with heating, factory fitted privacy glass, electrically heated door mirrors with electric adjustment for both sides (w/ usual larger size reduced blind-spot passenger mirror), Electric sunroof, Cruise Control, electrically adjustable steering column, Dual temp. control A/C, Original option high power speaker system incl. front door woofers & rear door mounted speakers too, Dual SRS Airbags for front seat occupants, Leather steering wheel with Zebrano wood to match the rest of the interior, Luggage net (Can be used with all rear seats folded too!), rear tonneau cover, split foldable rear seats.
Simple yet effective cruise control, speakers integrated invisibly by the A-pillars, simple A/C controls & illuminated vents. Visibility is excellent too and despite the headlights being Halogen filament type, they give excellent lighting and include pneumatic (as opposed to electronic!) headlight level adjustment. There are few electronics in these, which is largely why the 124 isn't known to have electrical problems not uncommonly experienced on later models. If an exterior bulb fails, an orange light on the dash will illuminate to warn the driver. This is controlled through a resistance sensor, again - not by un-necessary modern CANBUS data electronics that plague modern MB's not long after they run out of warranty. Mercedes felt the need to use electronics to switch on brake lights rather than a simple 12v circuit with thick wires, as a need to have OBD2 diagnosis, but these things have conspired to make physical wiring a lot thinner, which in turn can break, etc.
Grey leather is still supple after all these years and retains its original factory look,carpets are unmarked & original option (Yanase) floor mats are in good condition and even the boot area looks as if it's barely been used. The wood veneers on the centre console are all in original condition with no fading or delamination & door trim veneers are all as new too. All electric seat  adjustments work perfectly & silently, incl. head rest height, etc.
The Leather is all in great condition and appears to have barely been sat on. These rear facing seat belts are neatly held out of the way when not in use.

Bodywork as pictures show is excellent. It's clearly been stored indoors throughout it's life when not in use (registered in Nagoya). Paintwork is very well preserved and we note a distinct lack of stone chips too (indicating this car's been driven slowly).  We also noticed some minor scratches to the wheel edges, nothing too deep. There are clear pictures of each wheel. Note that these still have original factory finish on - a testament to the underside condition of this car. It has ZERO rust. We pay strong attention to such details, as we would want were we considering purchasing this car ourselves.
The self-levelling rear suspension works perfectly. Note this wagon has (rare on these) headlamp wash / wipe fitted too. Underneath there's no rust to be found at all and even the rear silencer has most of it's original factory protective paint still intact. We did note there are just two pin dents - one on each rear passenger door; see pictures). Also there are some carefully touched in chips on the edges of doors (With perfectly matched paint). Things like this attention to care of a 20+ year old car are a sign that the previous owner cherished this car!

The engine still carries the original factory sprayed anti-corrosive wax & over lacquer. Looking inside under the cover, we could see camshafts are still like new, which confirms it's had very regular oil changes with synthetic oil throughout it's life in Japan and the engine is barely worn. Signs show this car's been driven slowly and done mostly motorway kms (legal limit is 100 km/h in Japan). Service history confirms this also. We checked and note the engine loom is still soft and pliable, which helps confirm the car hasn't sat in traffic most of it's life. The M104 engine has proven itself as reliable & is known to run without trouble to 500,000km, if properly maintained as it has been to date.

As to be expected of a properly looked after example, it drives faultlessly & is one of those cars that will break motorway speed limits whilst purring quietly with the usual W124 sound proofing keeping the interior sedate & relaxing, in part due to the excellent sound deadening in the floor, lowest in period of class aerodynamics and the engine bay being separated from the cabin by two walls. Despite this being one of the last W124 wagons produced 21 years ago, this example's integrity means it still drives better & will without doubt last a lot longer than most modern equivalents today.

Most W124's of higher spec in Japan are LHD since this has been considered a status symbol since the end of WW2, so finding this particular car took much daily & diligent daily searching. We also only search for the very best spec'd examples - hence why all of our previously sold W124 wagons have each had leather seats too. Knowing 124's well, we've picked out this This unique Mercedes W124 E320TE represents a top opportunity to acquire an appreciating classic of best possible condition & spec. It's the lowest original mileage E320 7 seater wagon we've stocked yet. Ready to leave for the UK immediately, this example is priced at £SOLD & includes new MOT & UK registration and service.
