The Mercedes-Benz W124 generation E-Class was built for the 1985 through 1996 model years on a platform that was engineered to be a cut above the rest. Compare the build quality of an 80s W124 Benz to a similar era Lexus, Audi, or even BMW...and you'll be pleasantly suprised with the Stuttgart steamer. Find this 1992 Mercedes-Benz 300TE Wagon offered for $2,650 in Jersey City, NJ via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
This W124 is powered by the M103, a 3.0 liter inline 6 that puts out 177
horsepower and 188 ft-lbs of torque into the rear wheels via a 4 speed
automatic transmission. This wagon was a Delta Airlines executive car, so those rear jump seats were probably used for tossing around luggage that hadn't been fully destroyed by those ridiculous airport conveyor systems.
