    Back on eBay with slightly re-worded text. Still $65k / OBO:

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/153020095401 <-- Listing ended May 15, 2018.

    Apparently he didn't get the memo that AMG was no longer independent in 1994.


    1994 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sportline/AMG
    1994 Mercedes 320CE Sportline/AMG Cabriolet
    Original Legacy Patron and Stunning!





    “Stunning 1 of 1, w/rare 722-5 auto/trans, Sportline susp, AMG Gen II aero-affects, infrared-remote locks, MB's rare Becker 'Special", Swiss Anti-theft Sys, & w/MB post-production AMG modifications: ASR Differential w/3:69 ratio gears and matched Signal Red Recaro/Sportline leather interior. Delivered (VIN: WDB1240661C0633), Zurich Switzerland, November, 1993.”

    This 1994 Mercedes-Benz 320CE is a real factory-built Sportline/AMG A124 Cabriolet delivered Zurich Switzerland, November, 1993. It is the only one specifically ordered through Daimler AG with a rare combination of an S-class 722-5 automatic transmission; combined with a post-production modification through, then still independent AMG, Affalterbach, with an unprecedented 3:69 gear ratio ASR differential. This combination was never ordered for any other W124 chassis save for this one-off, hand-built cabriolet!

    Other unique specially ordered features include the only one ordered matching Signal Red Recaro/Sportline leather interior, Sportline rally suspension, and AMG 2nd Generation aero-affects. Also ordered was an S-Class-only infrared-remote lock system with an unique Swiss Anti-theft Deterrent system, along with Mercedes's best available, top-of-the-line Becker 'Speciale', AM/FM, Cassette CD audio-receiver with RDS traffic-alert. A discrete digital integration module has been added for future convenience.

    This stunning Sportline/AMG Cabriolet recently completed a three-plus year remanufacturing, solely under direction of Mercerdes-Benz USA; in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz Classic Center, Irvine, California USA and Daimler AG, Stuttgart Germany. This rare and stunning example has remained original, with every system and assembly repaired, replaced as-needed toward compliance with Mercedes-Benz factory certification of compliance. Specifically toward acquisition criteria expressed by curators with the Mercedes-Benz Museum, Stuttgart.

    This specially commissioned, hand-built, one-of-a-kind cabriolet was imported into the United States in 1997 by the original owner, while she cared for her ailing sister. DOT allowed the vehicle into the U.S. unfederalized under the condition the owner took her car with her when she returned to Europe. The purchase price upon delivery was well North of 115,000. Euros. The car currently records 120415 kph(74,500 original miles). The present owner will consider offers beginning May 1st. After which, this rare 'rally' cabriolet will be available by appointment. Located conveniently near LAX or John Wayne International Airports, a scheduled business or personal visit to Los Angeles can easily accommodate a private viewing to experience this stunning example for your collection.

    Additional sale features include all original accessories, factory-authorized restoration/repair receipts, original build sheet(s), and as well as, sales and operating manuals, wallets(2) and all supplements. Also included are all correct and complete tool, fuse, bulb, first aid and emergency kits, plus more. Sale includes Certificate of compliance from Daimler AG with an accompanying current title of remanufactured from Arizona.

    NOTE: This unique automobile is offered exactly as delivered to Mme. Irene Dreyfus, at her villa, 18th of November, 1993 by her agent, Daimler-Schweiz AG, Zurich.

    This one-of-a-kind cabriolet was conceived early August, 1993, within a period as the 300CE to E320 W124 platform was in transition. It includes a rare combination of early/late manufacturing features. With the inclusion of the newly developed S-Class 722-5 five speed automatic transmission, and highest 3:69 gear-ratio ASR differential available by Mercedes, this cabriolet obviously required no C36 package. The original owner desired only what was needed to transverse the Alps between Switzerland, Austria and the Riviera. Not the German autobahns. Of course, the cost savings did not go unrewarded and Daimler realized the owner desires that her new Mercedes be anything but "Ferrari Red" as she demanded!

    Hence, the late three month delivery, which by fate forced this car to be one of the final five cars to leave AMG Affalterbach, where the car awaited the matching signal-red Sportline/Recaro leather interior to be fitted.

    Vehicle is located in Los Angeles. World-wide shipping can be easily arranged.

    Why does he keep claiming the MBCC had anything to do with this car when they have clearly stated the onwer never even purchased any parts from them? No mention of its fishing career either.

    There are some tunnels, but some passes you have to go OVER (i.e. Brenner, Stelvio, Timmelsjoch, Penserjoch, etc.). Much funner going over. The Swiss love them some tunnels, though.....

    Someone already called it on the flood history.
    Some people are buying the MBCC resotration claim:

    ...Now as for the vehicle that is for sale, ON THIS SITE, it says that it just completed a 3 year restoration through Mercedes Benz! I would take it that that means It has been thoroughly gone through. Not an “old used car”. I know nothing about this class of vehicle pricing so I don’t know if it’s high or not. But it sounds like a very well redone, nicely optiotioned, obviously much enjoyed vehicle. So if you are interested, open a conversation up, you never know where it could take you……….

    I will fall off my soapbox now……..

    I can't remeber the last time I saw such a dishonest sales pitch. This guy should be charged with fraud. Anyone seriously looking at this car should be smart enough to contact MBCC and confirm his comments.

    All I can say is "Man-0-man". I have no idea what his cryptic line about the title is all about but did anyone see the AutoCheck score on eBay? It is only 15!!! I have never seen a car remotely close to that low!

    Since eBay doesn't recognize non-USA-format VIN's, he keeps entering VIN's from parts cars. The previous eBay listing had yet a different VIN, IIRC (thought the last one was white, this one is green).

    He mentions this near the end of the listing, but I don't know why he'd pay the extra fee to show an incorrect AutoCheck that might scare away buyers who don't catch the VIN discrepancy.

    That's a nice shinny tool kit that does not have the cab specific wrench for the tonneau cover. Perhaps *AMG* did not believe it was necessary or.....

    The picture of the engine bay makes me cringe. The 37k "restoration" must have been spent elsewhere. The alligator clips over the fuse box are a nice touch.

    It still bugs me every time I see these exterior pictures, for the asking price, at least could have re-sprayed the claddings to match the color!

    I purchased this car in 2001. I also owned 2 other w124s while I was located in GA.

    I purchased the car from a lady in Florida who imported it from Switzerland (so she tells me) She wanted the custom red interior and had it converted that way.

    I kept it for a year then sold it to a family friend (retired teacher) in NYC. Unfortunately Hurricane Sandy flooded the car and it became a totalled in 2011.

    The current seller purchased it from an auction and has been working on it since then.

    I hope this clears some of the confusion as to its history.

    Those aren't alligator clips. They're what's used to hold the dope the seller is smoking.


    As for the cost to "restore".. removing saltwater and seaweed is not an inexpensive proposition.

    Maybe the seller just doesn’t understand how decimals work. Surely he must mean $3,700. Heck, even the earlier price of $6,500 would have been pretty good. Not great considering the flood damage, but not the craziest price in the world. Now, if he were asking, say, ten times that, yeah, that would be nuts.

    This is proving to be a wonderfully delicious, slow-motion, disaster-in-progress.

    I seriously hope any buyer (and there will be one eventually) does their homework in advance of purchase.

    My prediction is that this car will [eventually] go for somewhere in the mid to high teens -- less than one-quarter of the seller's original asking price.

    That is really all its worth. Will need a special buyer though, one that can stomach that interior. If it had the original black, it would definitely have a better chance at a sale.

    I think when you spend this kind of money on a restoration, you want to leave the white plastic bits in their yellowed state as a "patina."

    More misleading inferences about the MB certificate of compliance (as if it has some sort of factory refurbishment), not to mention a complete lack of disclosure as to the flood damage/history of the car.

    Another $20-25K price drop and he'll be in the ballpark. Let's hope he comes to his senses. The MB community worldwide has to be on to this seller's shenanigans by now.

    You have to wonder if the seller would of just came out and said ''Yeah, this was a flood car that was repaired. It's unique. Make a fair offer.''

    Not only that, but perhaps not bothering with the multi-state title-washing exercise and its associated suspiciousness.

    This is a 1994 Mercedes-Benz 320CE It is a real factory-built Sportline/AMG A124 Cabriolet delivered Zurich Switzerland, November, 1993(VIN: WDB1240661C0633). The only one ordered through Daimler AG with a rare combination of an S-class 722-5 automatic transmission; combined with a post-production modification through, then still independent AMG, Affalterbach, with an unprecedented 3:69 gear ratio ASR differential.

    This stunning Sportline/AMG Cabriolet recently completed a three-plus year remanufacturing, solely under direction of Mercerdes-Benz USA; in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz Classic Center, Irvine, California USA and Daimler AG, Stuttgart Germany. This rare and stunning example has remained original, with every system and assembly repaired, replaced as-needed toward compliance with Mercedes-Benz factory certification of compliance.

    I know of one of these AMG cabs with 96km under 20k in the US. Better color too IMO. If anyone is interested I’ll put you in touch. Here are a few pics.

    Re: C/L hoopties

    Now on Craigslist! $40k:

    https://losangeles.craigslist.org/ws...693764917.html

    1994 Mercedes 320CE Sportline/AMG Cabriolet - $40000 (LAWNDALE)

    A 1994 Mercedes-Benz 320CE(VIN#WDB1240661C0633), factory-built Sportline/AMG A124 delivered to Lucerne, Switzerland, November, 1993. It is the only one of it's kind specifically ordered with a post-production, pre-merger AMG hand-stitched, installed Signal Red Kepler-Recaro, Sportline leather interior.

    Features also include original build sheet(s), with sales and operating manuals, wallets (2), and all supplements. It also is equipped with a MB's 1st. 5-Speed Automatic, a 3:69 ASR rearend, and w/rare S-class Infra-red remote Lock-theft-recovery system. It also includes full documented Mercedes-Benz restoration/repair receipts, totaling over $37k. Added accessories include all correct & complete tool, fuse, bulb, first aid and emergency kits, + all period sales literature.

This rare and stunning example remains original and unmodified, with every system and assembly repaired, replaced as-required toward achieving Daimler's Factory Certification of Compliance.

    Historical Note: This special cabriolet was brought into the United States in 1997 by it's original owner, while she cared for her ailing sister in Miami. DOT verified it allowed in vehicles unfederalized, under the promise the car returned with the owner to Europe. The purchase price upon delivery was 118.000,DM(equivalent to $205,000 USD today). The car currently records 121800 kph(75,750 original miles). This special-ordered cabriolet is available by appointment. Located conveniently near LAX or John Wayne International Airports, a scheduled business or personal visit can easily accommodate a private viewing to experience this last ultimate example of Mercedes-Benz "Alles Oder Nichts" traditional craftsmanship.

    Indeed. Yet it hasn’t stopped him from continuing to make that claim.

    Doesn’t seem to be helping him much, regardless.

    Another $20K price reduction and he’ll likely be able to sell it.

    Anyone want to bet on how long it will take to get to a proper selling price?

    If it doesn't sell soon the weather will turn against him. I'd be interested at $15k.

    Yes, I saw them distance themselves from this or germancarsforsaleblog. Also we should not be too hard on the seller, he only left out very minor details - for example that it was a flood car and small stuff like that

    In the comments section on this car in germancarsforsaleblog:

    Mercedes-Benz Classic Center, Irvine, CA MAY 8, 2018 AT 7:43 PM


    For whatever it’s worth, our Classic Center had no involvement with this vehicle beyond the provision of a factory build sheet some time ago. We did NOT restore the car, nor did we oversee the car’s restoration, nor have we ever sold the owner any parts for it.
    We appreciate the tactic of throwing good name into the marketing effort, but only when it’s deserved (and true!).

    Now advertised on MercedesHeritage.com:

    https://mercedesheritage.com/classified/show-ad?id=382

    Still at $40K. Needs to come down another $20-25K to be realistic.

    I'm wondering what this "Certificate of Compliance" is -- I've never heard of that. I have seen the certificates that MB sells where you provide them with your VIN and registration and they send you a nice certificate of authenticity, but that is different than a "Certificate of Compliance."

    Compliance with WHAT? What rules or standards? Under whose authority?

    No mention of the flood damage nor salvage title?



    Notes from listing ... same BS as before:

    It also includes full documented Mercedes-Benz restoration/repair receipts, totaling over $37k. Added accessories include all correct & complete tool, fuse, bulb, first aid and emergency kits, + all period sales literature. The vehicle comes with the rare Daimler-Benz AG's Factory Certificate of Compliance and carries a current permanently registered Montana title.

    This stunning Sportline/AMG Cabriolet recently completed a three-plus year remanufacturing, solely under guidance of Mercedes-Benz USA, the Classic Center, Irvine, California USA and Daimler AG, Stuttgart Germany. This rare and stunning example remains original and unmodified, with every system and assembly repaired, replaced as-required toward achieving Daimler's Factory Certification of Compliance.
