White Whale: 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300TE W124

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 surprised with the Stuttgart steamer.  Find this 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300TE offered for $3,900 in Edmonds, WA via craigslist.

See a better way to drive a wagon?


  1. Oh man.......been having a serious wagon jones as my 01 E46 5sp wagon sits waiting for a valve....

  2. Aside from the awful window tint, this looks wonderful

  3. Anyone else thinking Safari Style? Lifted, tall tires, with a roof basket and some offroad lights?

    1. Ill see your build and raise you a front brush bar and ski plates fore and aft.

      Too cool.

    2. There's been one of these sitting on CL up here in AK for a while at $1300 needing some transmission adjustment and the rear hatch painted to match. I've been tempted but a bit too busy with a political campaign for local office...
