This 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300CE Cabriolet was sold new through Tafel Motors of Louisville, Kentucky in January 1993. It remained with the second owner from 2003 through 2020 until the current owner purchased the car. Documented dealer service receipts accompany this example showing consistent service since new including rebuilt top hydraulics cylinders and wiring harness replacement through Tafel Motors, now Mercedes-Benz of Louisville. Finished in Black (040) over a Grey Leather (268) interior, power comes from a 3.2-liter M104 Inline-6 paired to a four-speed automatic transmission. Features include a power folding black soft top, an OEM wind deflector, an aftermarket Alpine head unit, and automatic climate control. This 300CE Cabriolet currently shows 98,221 miles on the analog odometer and is being offered by the current owner with an original window sticker, comprehensive service records, manufacturer’s literature, two keys, an OEM car cover and wind deflector, and a clean Kentucky title.
Finished in Black (040) with matching Black lower cladding, the body is free from any dents or corrosion. Exterior features include glass headlamps with wipers, an automatic power antenna, and a power soft top in Black cloth. All body panels reportedly align evenly and the clear coat shows nicely with no signs of fading or failure.
This example shows the original 8-hole 15” wheels wrapped in Michelin Primacy MXV4 tires measuring 195/65 with original painted center caps installed. The wheels are free from any bends but do show light curb rash around the lips.
The cabin is trimmed in Grey Leather (268) across the seats, door cards, head rests, and armrest while the upper dash, steering wheel, and shift knob are wrapped in contrasting Black leather. The original Grey carpets remain with the car and are shown in the gallery below. An original set of all-weather mats will be included as well. Burl Walnut wood adorns the door cards, center console, and dashboard. The wood veneer is free from cracks or fading. An aftermarket Alpine head unit has been installed with Bluetooth capability. Additional features include automatic climate control, dual front airbags, an OEM folding wind deflector, and power-adjustable seats.
The black leather steering wheel frames a 160-mph speedometer and a 7k-rpm tachometer featuring an analog clock, along with gauges for coolant temperature, fuel level, and oil pressure. The six-digit odometer now shows 98,221 miles.
The 3.2-liter M104 inline-6 was factory rated at 217 horsepower and 229 lb-ft of torque when new. Ample maintenance records will be included in the sale documenting regular oil changes and maintenance dating back to 2003. Noteably, major services include rebuilt top hydraulic cylinders and wiring harness replacement with the local dealership.
This 300CE Cabriolet currently shows 98k miles on the odometer and is being offered by the current owner with an original window sticker, comprehensive service records, manufacturer’s literature, two keys, an OEM car cover, and a clean Kentucky title.
Below are videos showing the power-folding soft top in operation and this Cabriolet driving.
At $76,900 MSRP the E-Class cabriolet (A124) was one of the most expensive models on showroom floors in the early 90’s. We’ve seen plenty of low-mile examples presented to the market this year but this is the first time we’ve had such a complete offering including almost 20 years of service records in addition to all the OEM accessories and even the original window sticker. There's no denying the tremendous value in getting behind the wheel of an A124 that's already had the wiring harness and top hydraulic cylinders addressed. We trust the next owner will be as meticulous in their record keeping and their maintenance as the current owner. In any case, this A124 is ready for a new home and is only in need of a new driver and caretaker.
