The Mercedes-Benz 124 series is a range of mid-size cars made from 1984 to 1997. The range included numerous body configurations, and although collectively referred to as the W-124, official internal chassis designations varied by body style; saloon (W 124). From 1993, the 124 series was officially marketed as the E-Class.
This automatic example of the W124 200TE is presented in blue coachwork with matching blue trim. It features two-fold-away seats in the boot making this a practical, occasional seven seater. A three-owner example for which the second owner, who’s initials are on the cherished plated which is included with the sale, owned it for over 20 years. The original sales invoice is present in the history file, this is coupled to the original book pack and lots of invoices following a detailed service history which includes 14 main dealer stamps until 2004 and several services invoiced thereafter, this includes a head gasket replacement by Mercedes-Benz in 2008. In 2013 this example was categorised a category D insurance loss due to a repair that the insurer decided not to complete, however the then owner considered the car too good not to repair and return to the road. Since then a new water pump, new brake pipes and engine mounts have all been seen to. The car also benefits from an MoT test certificate valid until September 2022. Space has dictated the need for a new keeper for this lovely example of the fantastically reliable W124 which is equally capable now as it was in 1993.
