No Reserve: 1992 Mercedes-Benz 400E
This 1992 Mercedes-Benz 400E shows 155k miles and is powered by a 4.2-liter V8 paired with a four-speed automatic transmission. It has been with the seller for the past 18 months, during which time it has served as his daily driver over a 40-mile commute. Recent maintenance included an ignition tune-up and oil change. Within the past 10k miles and three years, service work included rebuilding the transmission, replacing the upper wiring harness, air conditioning evaporator, engine and transmission moiunts, and more as outlined below. The car is now being offered at no reserve with three years of service records, a clean Carfax, and a clear Oregon title in the seller’s name.
This W124 retains a stock appearance, with lighter-colored body cladding and un-tinted glass. The factory 15” alloys show some minor curb rash. The seller indicates that some minor scratches and assorted blemishes are present in the paint. Headlamps have been converted to European specification with color-matched headlamp wiper delete panels. A chip is present in the Sigla windshield, which has been professionally filled. Close-ups have been provided in the gallery below.
The light grey leather interior features dual airbags, power seats, and a sunroof. The original radio was recently reconditioned by Becker and an auxilary input jack was added that time. A few electrical issues inside are present, including nonfunctional front seat heaters, power headrests, left-rear window regulator, as well as a partially-inoperable changer. 155k miles are shown on the odometer, approximately 8k of which have been added by the seller.
The 4.2-liter M119 V8 was factory rated at 275 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque and comes paired with a four-speed automatic transmission. A slight thud from the rear is present on hard acceleration, which the seller believes to be the result of worn bushings.
