1992 Mercedes-Benz 500E
This 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500E is finished in Black Pearl Metallic over
Parchment Cream-Beige leather and was acquired by the seller from its original owner 15 years ago. Power is supplied by a 5.0-liter DOHC V8 mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission. Approximately $38k of receipts begin in 2004 and cover the recent installation of a rebuilt DME unit, a new belt and tensioner, as well as a tune-up and transmission service. The car has been driven daily by the seller, who has added around 93k of the 193k indicated miles during his ownership. This W124 is now being offered for sale with the records, a Carfax report, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.
Sheet metal wears a Black Pearl Metallic finish with gray lower body cladding. An accident involving rear impact with another vehicle is listed on the Carfax report, though further details of the incident are unavailable. The trunk received touch-up paint in 2008, and the seller notes some rock chips on the front passenger-side fender flare as well as surface rust under the spare tire. US-market headlamps and wipers are retained, and aftermarket tint has been applied to the windows. 17” Monoblock-style wheels have been refinished and are wrapped in a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. A stock 16” slotted wheel is equipped as the spare.
4-place sport seats are trimmed in Parchment leather and are heated and power-adjustable up front. Matching carpets are protected by black rubber floor mats, and a replacement headliner has been installed. The seller notes some driver’s bolster wear as well as some cracks in the burled wood trim. A modern Sony head unit has been installed in place of the factory Becker stereo. The A/C system has a leak but is said to blow cold when fully charged. Under 193k miles are shown on the 6-digit odometer, approximately 93k of which were added by the seller.
The rear sun shade does not retract, and a replacement mechanism is included in the sale along with new climate control buttons. When new, the 5.0L DOHC V8 produced 322 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. A tune-up was performed in August 2018, which is said to have included a rebuilt DME unit as well as a new belt and tensioner. The transmission and differential were serviced in May 2018 and an oil change was performed.
A new cat-back exhaust and fuel pumps have been installed, and the seller notes a hydraulic hose leak. The car passed a California emissions test in March 2017, and additional underside photos can be viewed in the gallery below. Approximately $38k of receipts beginning in 2004 are included in the sale.
