ADMIN EDIT: This VIN was manufactured around September 1992, and would be equivalent to a 1993 USA model year 500E. It was not built in 1996 and is not an E500.
Not sure why it needed "Refurb" with such low mileage and I have never seen this color, so I perhaps it is a repaint. Having said that I have seen W124's in Europe in colors we don't get here in the U.S.
Also not sure why the "condition" says "restoration project" yet at end of description it says "Car is in perfect condition".
No underbody picture but the pictures of the body & interior seem pretty good.
"From 1991 to 1994, Mercedes-Benz sold a high-performance version of the W124, the Mercedes-Benz 500 E (W124.036). The 500 E was created in close cooperation with Porsche. With its engineering department being fully occupied with the development of the new S-Class, Mercedes-Benz commissioned Porsche in 1989 to redesign the W124 chassis to shoehorn the 5.0L V8 used in the SL into it, along with the necessary changes on the suspension system and drive train. When the car was ready, it was found that its widened fenders didn't fit through the W124 assembly line in Sindelfingen in three places. Hence Porsche was also commissioned to assemble the car. As a side-effect this arrangement provided workload for Porsche's plant, as the company was in crisis at the time, and its factory capacitiy was underutilizedMercedes Benz W124 E500 partly refurbished.
