Mercedes E320 Coupe W124 SOLD (1995)
|I am pleased to offer for sale my superb 1995 Mercedes E320 Sportline Coupe, one of the last W124 models. |
Registered on the 1st August 1995 to its first owner who bought it as a company car from Cruickshank Mercedes in Bristol, the car was then part exchanged in April 1996 for the newer model at Speeds in Stratford on Avon.
The second owner bought the car from Speeds and owned it until March 2008. He had the car serviced every 9000 miles at his local garage with any major work and further services carried out by Speeds and Stirling Mercedes in Worcester. After retiring, he decided that he didn’t use the car much and sold it to the third owner, a Doctor in Hall Green Birmingham.
The Doctor had various work done to the car including fitting an alarm system and having the rear screen replaced due to laminating. He found himself in the unfortunate situation of having to get a divorce and therefore decided to down size his collection of cars, and that’s when I bought it in June 2009.
The E320 has been meticulously maintained over it’s lifetime with detailed service invoices and all of the previous MOT’s showing an average of 5000 miles per annum. The present mileage is 95500 miles and a service has just been carried out by Andy Gayle (30/01/12).
Both front wings have been replaced due to the common problem of rust eating through the bottom of them by the rear of the wheel arch.
When I first had the car I sent it to Andy Gayle Mercedes Benz Specialist in Dudley and asked them to go through the car with a fine tooth comb and rectify anything that needed doing. This they did and gave me a bill for £816.82! The service after that only cost me £185.78. I have just had all the alloys wheels refurbished and four new Pirelli 205/60/15 tyres fitted (25/01/12).
Needless to say the car runs as new and is superb in every way. If you are reading this you are probably aware how wonderful the E320 is with its straight six engine, smooth, responsive and very fast.
This car has the ‘sports chassis’ with the 8 hole light alloy rims and automatic sports gearbox. Finished in Metallic blue/black paintwork with unmarked mushroom leather interior (and yes the interior is as good as you can see in the pictures!), it’s the ultimate in Mercedes sophistication. The carpets are unmarked and covered in ‘as new’ beige over mats, there are winter rubber mats in the boot. I have fitted a Sony Bluetooth CD system with iPod connection in the centre glove box, it will connect to your mobile phone when you turn the ignition on. There is dual air conditioning and electric windows front and rear which allows the car pillar less looks in the summer. There is of course an electric sunroof, electric aerial and arms that present you with the seat belt when you close the doors. The driver’s seat is electric as well as the door mirrors and the car has twin airbags in the front.
I have recently had a new battery fitted after its winter rest, replaced a noisy viscous coupling and a new AC Condenser unit (30/01/12) but that’s about it!
The car comes with all paperwork, service book, list of owners, MOT’s and additional documentation in a folder. There is an un-opened First Aid kit, two keys and all the original handbooks.
MOT until August 8th 2012 (will renew if required)and taxed until October 2012.
So why am I selling it?
Well I collect classic cars, it’s an illness, I like my cars to be spot on with all traceable owners and paperwork. I get them up to the standard I require and then my job is done!
The wife regularly assesses the driveway and threatens to leave me unless I make more room for her Freelander. She has been with me a long time now and is part of the family, if she leaves the dog and I will miss her.
I may be persuaded with a part exchange on something interesting and classic.
For viewings and further information please call me, Colin.
