Again my appologies to all for this scene on BW .

If you will sell it (or sold it) at or below $2,800 then why even make a big deal in the first place of the original question on why the $700 price bump?
Anyway, yes the car is nice "in pictures" as I hope it is also alike "in person". THAT is why I saved your CL post since it was worth it to do so... Best of luck to you.

Yeah John! ...it's all good!
I ruled this one out (for me) because of the "tranny" thing... and Carfax showed 137,964 miles on 09/15/2002... etc. Well, let's just leave it at that.

BTW, why does carfax also show this: "1992 MERCEDES-BENZ 300CE WDBEA51E0NB584761 COUPE 3.0L L6 FI".... Huh? Not a 3.2L 24-valve? Engine pics would prove it otherwise though.
I ... I'm
But hey, more power to the seller... and buyer!

You know, that would make sense as to why the emblem is not on the back either, they did make both models at the same time, hence the need for the different badges.

Trans problem is no big deal. I "blew up" Powerpigs trans in his 1993 sportline 300CE-24 and got it fixed in and out for about 1K. It lost reverse all of a sudden. Had to push it out of the parking spot so I could go home. It looked like shrapnel inside

That's right John! 1992 was the last model year in which a US-version C124 could be had with the standard M103 (3,361 units for 1992) or the optional M104 (3,896 units for 1992). It would be nice to see actual engine bay pics! It looks cosmetically nice though but I'm done with projects for now... I'll holdout for a 124 sportline.

My engine has a white valve cover with the ignition wires running through a tunnel in the center of the valve cover. Hope that helps.

Strange comments I've not seen before concerning coupes, their engines and markings... In reference to the carfax noted above, it's just a system prone to human error as anything else, the only thing it's missing is the 24V part, but the 3.0L is correct.

Also a couple of comments from two posters concerning 3.2L and an a "possible" missing badge that should say 300CE 24V.

3.2L 24V is not a US-1992 motor, thats been documented everywhere.

1990 thru 1992 is 3.0L 24V in the CE's, (from the E-Class Owners Bible)

1993 introduced the 3.2L 24V in US, (from the E-Class Owners Bible), elsewhere I have no idea

I am rather new to all this, but still, I've read a lot already and I've not seen a US version 1992 coupe with a 103 motor anywhere. Every advertisement and picture for a 1992 CE is a 3.0L 24V only. If there are any 92 CE's with a 103 motor, their owners must have realized how rare they are, because I've never seen a 92 300CE with a 103 advertised anywhere.

I own a 92 300CE, it is a 3.0L 24V, and the badge on the trunk says "300CE", just like every other 92 CE advertizement I've seen. Is is possible that non-US versions have this "300CE 24V" marking?

How about this possibility, since 1990 was the first year of the 3.0L 24V in the CE's, could that be the year when they also still put 103 motors in them? The E-Class bible says nothing about a 103 motor being standard and 104 being optional for CE's, by the way, this poster is the first person to make this statement. I wonder if he's confusing motor options in the sedans for different years?

I was quoting what I read/saw in Nitske's MB Production Models book... I'll see if I can scan/post it tonight to clarify for us all. And most 1992 300CE's I saw do have the 24V 3.0 in there... the 3.2 was out starting the 1993 model year. And I think the seller's engine may have the M104 24V after all since it has the "white valve cover with the ignition wires running through a tunnel in the center of the valve cover"

Hmm, when you "most" 92 CE's, your implying you've seen "some" without the 104 motor.

If I were to say the same sentence, the word I would use is "all", subtle but very meaningful difference between the words.


Yea, if ya get a chance post that data, I'm interested in seeing it...

Oh, more importantly, does that data base show any at all built with the C36 AMG motor? Sure like to get my hands on one of those, that's what got everyones attention to begin with...lol
