Welcome to the sale of Bernie the Benz, my 1991 Mercedes 300CE.
The highest powered variant of the CE without being a 24v car. The 3 litre straight 6 is such a creamy and smooth engine and sounds amazing on kick-downs and bursts of acceleration.
The 4 speed auto box changes up and down seamlessly and has the usual classic Mercedes E (economy) and S (standard) modes and has the option to select 2nd and 3rd gear manually using the gear selector.
The interior is in great condition apart from the usual bolster ware on the drivers seat which I can send a photo of. Comes with an aftermarket radio with USB connectivity and AUX input. He also comes with the original Mercedes w124 15 hole alloys that are in great condition with tyres dating from last year.
He has covered 167,500 graceful and very comfortable miles and comes with a very healthily stamped original Mercedes service book (25 stamps) and an MOT until May 2020. Also comes with a few various other bits of history and the original handbooks etc. Mileage will increase as he is in daily use. A lot of the miles in my ownership have been motorway etc.
Only for sale due to purchasing a 24v after a long time searching.
The bodywork is actually quite impressive for one of these, with only the 2 front wings displaying signs of bubbling.
I’ve also just had an oil and filter change carried out.
All in all Bernie is a very solid example of this classic coupe, but isn’t without his niggles...
As mentioned, the bubbling on the front arches. The passenger window is inoperative and the drivers window goes up and down but doesn’t quite reach the top, I believe the teeth are worn in that area.
There is a slight miss on idle, which goes away under load, I haven’t investigated this so I can’t comment on what is causing it; I have been told by a specialist that it’s likely to be plugs, HT leads, or the distributor cap.
The drivers side seat belt delivery arm is also not working.
Owned by a Mercedes Benz club member for 15 years prior.
I’m looking for £1,995.
