This 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300CE was previously auctioned through The MB Market in May 2021 and is now being relisted by the original seller. This example was sold new through Mercedes-Benz of Lynnwood, Washington in December 1992. It remained with the original owner in Seattle, Washington until August 2003 where it was sold to subsequent longterm owners. Finished in Black (040) over Black Leather (261), the car is powered by a 3.2-liter M104 inline-six paired to a four-speed automatic transmission. Recent service includes a complete fluid flush and comprehensive service records accompany the car including a wire harness replacement by the dealer in 2003. This C124 currently shows 145,731 miles on the odometer and is offered by the selling dealer with a folder of complete maintenance records dating back to 2003, manufacturer's literature, two original keys, and a clean Georgia title.
Finished in Black (040) with Grey lower body cladding, this coupe has been kept nicely and no signs of clear coat damage or rust are present. A very minor indention is noted on the driverside front fender just above the lower cladding in addition to a small rock chip on the left side of the windshield. Features include a power sliding sunroof with tilt function, headlight washers with automatic wipers, and a pillarless window design.
This example retains the original 8-hole chrome wheels measuring 15x7 on all four corners. The wheels are wrapped in Michelin Primacy MXV4 tires measuring 215/60. The wheels show some light curb rash and some peeling chrome inside the spokes near the barrels.
The cabin is trimmed in Black Leather (261) across the seats, door cards, armrest, and dashboard. Additional leather-trimmed features include the steering wheel and shift knob. All leather surfaces are reported to be original and nicely kept with no tears or scuffs. The Black dashboard is free from cracks along with the door cards and rear headrests. The retractable seat belt arms for the front seats are reportedly inoperable althought the seatbelts themselves do function with no issues. The center console, dash, and doors are trimmed in original Burl Walnut wood and shows some light cracking under the shifter surround. Interior features include the original Becker head unit (with security code), automatic climate control, power mirrors, and power folding rear headrests.

Additional gauges include fuel level, coolant temperature, and oil pressure along with an analog clock and digital external temperature gauge.
The 3.2-liter M104 inline-six was rated at 217 horsepower and 229 lb-ft of torque when new. While a recent service includes a complete fluid flush, comprehensive service records are included with the car by way of paper files and floppy disks. The included records show all major and minor services between 2003 and 2019 including a 2003 receipt showing replacement of the engine wiring harness by Mercedes-Benz of San Francisco.
