Detailed description

Another superb example of the classic E320 Wagon now available in stock,if your looking for a practical and versatile classic estate to use everyday or the perfect machine to take the family to the coast in superb comfort this W124 E320 Wagon could be the perfect choice!With just 70,389 miles and in superb rust free condition throughout having spent all its life on salt free Japanese roads in a humid climate this classic W124 estate is set to provide years of trouble free motoring for its new owner.These are becoming increasingly difficult to find in RHD in Japan and top spec,this one came up after months of searching on the ground in Japan by our friends and partners at Newera imports.This example features a top spec interior with full grey leather in fantastic condition.Carpets  are in excellent 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 excellent .

Dual temp. control A/C, Original Mercedes speaker system,Dual SRS Airbags for front seat occupants, Leather steering wheel.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.
Bodywork as pictures show is excellent,aside from the a few carefully touched in small stone chips which are clearly shown in the slide show to give a complete and accurate description of the car,overall a fantastic example set to provide the new owner with years of trouble free motoring. It's clearly been stored indoors throughout it's life when not in use .Paintwork is very well preserved with a great shine after cleaning.We also noticed some minor scratches to the wheel edges, nothing too deep.Tyres are matching with plenty of tread left all round. 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 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 noted 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 being produced 23 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. This unique Mercedes  W124 E280 represents a top opportunity to acquire an appreciating classic of best possible condition and mileage.Drive one of these and it’s not long before you’ll be smitten by its blend of comfort,build quality and refinement,the W124 really is one of the best cars Mercedes ever built and now a true up and coming classic.

Ready to leave for the UK, this example is priced at £SOLD & includes 12 months MOT & UK registration and service plus a MPH speedometer conversion to allow the car to be enjoyed safely on UK roads.
