This 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300D 4Matic was initially ordered through the Mannheim Branch and built as a European market example. The car was purchased by the current owner and seller in late 2021 and remains titled and registered in Florida with previous registrations noted in Japan, Nova Scotia, and Quebec. Finished in Diamond Blue Metallic (355) over Blue Cloth (062), this W124 is powered by an OM603 inline-six turbo diesel paired to a four-speed automatic transmission. The odometer currently shows 153k kilometers (~95k miles) TMU, approximately 6k of which have been added by the seller. Features include air conditioning, a sliding power sunroof, and an aftermarket digital head unit. Maintenance performed over the past year includes an A/C service along with all fresh fluids, brakes, and both ball joints. The car is now being offered by the seller with a Carfax report showing history since 2006, the factory toolkit, manufacturer’s literature, one key, and a clean Florida title.
The exterior is finished in Diamond Blue Metallic (355) with all original panels. The seller notes slight corrosion around the base of the antenna and no other rust on the body. The original lower body cladding is finished in matching Blue paint and doesn’t show any cracks. Exterior features include European market side marker lamps, dark amber corner lights, a power sliding sunroof, and heat insulating glass. General wear can be seen across the paint including rock chips and light scratching. A ding is also noted in the rear passenger door. The attached Carfax shows minor damage and wind damage in 2008.
Original 15” Gullideckel wheels are fitted and wear new Continental tires measuring 195/65 on all four corners. The wheels are the originals and show light curb rash with no bends. Original silver-painted center caps are installed.
The four-spoke steering wheel frames a 220-kph analog speedometer, 6k-rpm tachometer, and an analog odometer with trip function showing 153k kilometers (~95k miles) TMU and the odometer noted as intermittently operational. Additional gauges include fuel level and coolant temperature along with an analog clock. The steering wheel shows some fading and cracking.
The 3.0-liter OM603 six-cylinder turbo diesel was rated at 148 horsepower and 229 lb-ft of torque when new. Power is sent to all four wheels through a 4Matic four-speed automatic transmission. In the last year the A/C has been serviced along with all fresh fluids, brakes, and both ball joints.
A Carfax report accompanies the car showing history since 2006. This 1990 300D 4Matic is now being offered by the seller with the factory toolkit, manufacturer’s literature, one key, and a clean Florida title.

Is there anything more indicative of W124 build quality than a diesel E-Class? With the W123 setting the benchmark for Mercedes reliability, the W124 shouldn't be overlooked for its 21st century adaptability and timless styling. For these reasons, and many more, the W124 is one of our favorite Mercedes-Benz models. This European market example displays just enough funk in the color combo combined with A/C and a power sunroof to really appeal to the enthusiast in us. Not only is this W124 a diesel, it also comes with a turbo to help speed things along and 4Matic to keep you moving in the right direction. A true enthusiast’s car, we hope this example finds a home that continues to appreciate it for all the right reasons.
