Double You One Two Four- 1991 Mercedes 260E

The Mercedes W124 E class are great bargains for anyone looking for a well engineered retro driver.  The excellent outward visibility, simple interior, compliant suspension, and squared off looks present a great alternative to any similarly priced newer front wheel drive car.  Prices for these models are still relatively affordable and deals like today's 260E still are out there.  The 2.6 engine was the smallest M103 straight six that could be fitted in a North American W124 and was only found on the lowest spec model so this car would be the lightest curb weight of the range.  Today's car has a some subtle modifications along with a rarely seen exterior color.  Find this 1991 Mercedes 260E for sale in Mount Vernon, NY for $2,900 via Cargurus.


From the seller:

Selling my Canadian spec 91 300e 2.6l... 116,XXX miles(its a Canadian model so instrument cluster show km instead of miles). Runs strong. Transmission shifts smooth. Suspension is ok but could use new shocks just to stiffen it up a bit. Interior is immaculate despite a few cracks on wooden center console trim. Exterior is in good shape with no rust on undercarriage or body. There are a few scratches and dents but overall good looking car. Everything works except for A/C. Might just need charging. Selling because I am looking to upgrade to a newer vehicle. Asking $2,900 obo. 


The red exterior color is very unusual for these models and looks great combined with the beige interior.  Euro headlights on 1993 and older models make these front ends look a 1000% better.  The 16" eight hole wheels are a form and function upgrade as there are way more tire choices in 205/55/16 than any 15" size at this point in time.
