1995 Mercedes Benz E320 W124 Station Wagon



This should be purchased with the intention of fixing or parting out. The car has zero compression on cylinder #1 (due to a suspected valve issue), and the car has a slipping reverse gear. I do have a 70k mile transmission that is for sale as well. I just don't feel like taking the time or effort to replace the motor in the space that I currently have. There is some rust here and there on the vehicle, otherwise the paint is in excellent condition.

Even with the misfire in cylinder #1 the car still runs and drives fine, with a slight shake at idle. You COULD purchase this and drive it, although I wouldn't recommend relying on it as your only vehicle. I'm certain it will make the drive to where ever you want to drive it. I drove to Boston from central Vermont with the misfire and didn't have any problems. It might keep running for who knows how long like this.

Car will come with stock 15" rims and 3 season old snow tires (not pictured).

The soy-based wiring harness has been replaced by the previous owner, as well as the A/C compressor. Two common problems on these cars.

I've replaced flex discs on the drive shaft, starter, left front control arm/ball joint, strut mounts, front struts, motor mounts, alternator brushes, front pads and rotors, rear pads, and had the windshield replaced in the past 2 years. I've owned and driven this car over the past 3 years on countless trips to the mountains in Vermont, many trips to Central Pennsylvania, and road trips down the east coast to the Carolinas. It's never given me an issue and is the most comfortable car I've ever owned.

I love this thing and wish I could fix it, I just don't have the desire to do so and want to get back into something a little more simple until I have a garage to work in. I've been quoted by an independent mechanic that a new motor plus labor to install said motor and the transmission I currently own would cost around $1500.00 to $2000.00. Valuing this car at $3000.00 is about what I would expect the fair asking price would be if it were in perfect running order. You can find sub-100k mile motors on Car-Part for less than $500.00 easily. If you have a garage and an engine hoist buy yourself this car.

The transmission I have for the vehicle has approximately 70k miles on it and can be purchased for $400.00.
