I would say the 86-91 560SEC, 94-95 W124 E320 Cabriolet and 92-94 W124 500E/E500.

500e, c32

id say rare 123s and 126s are already bringing high prices, in good shape
Agree on the 123s. Recently sold my 1985 coupe for 2.3 times what I paid for her.

In april Automobile in UPSHIFT AUCTIONS pg 124 "The best buy" was a 1986 560SL SN WDBBA48B9GA039743 with less than 50,000 miles went for $11,610.

They say someday this body will be considered ICONIC, They mention it's expensive to keep on the road but in 10 years even your brother in law will refer to it as classic.

I also think the W126 SECs will be classics. And all AMGs of course.

Also any MB still having the "80s" styling with aero kits and BBS tires will be considered classic.

And of course the 280CEs and 300CDs

Wow I have to sell mine for $750 to get that type of return :bowdown:

Hopefully someday. :D
I am certain. Recent sales of 300CDs (turbo diesel) with less than 150K miles are in the range of $11,000 - $15,000.

w126 coupes, 190 E 2.3/2.6, 500E, 560sl, i reckon these are semi-classic status already.

as for newer models the only one is the CL class, i can't imagine any model made after 92 will be remembered in 40 years. but that's only my opinion.

I'm trying to keep my 1992 400E mint and maybe one day I'll get those vintage license plates. I think the 124's have a classic styling and seem to be better engineered then some of the newer models.
