This 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300CE Cabriolet was sold new by Beifus Motors of South Orange, New Jersey with first registration in Florida before moving to Texas in 2017 with its current owner. Now showing just 26k miles, this 300CE is finished in Light Ivory (623) over Brazil Leather (263) and is powered by a 3.2-liter 24-valve inline-six linked with a four-speed automatic transmission. Equipment includes power adjustable front seats with driver-side memory, a power adjustable steering column, a power-folding fabric soft top, automatic climate control, cruise control and the original Becker Grand Prix radio. Maintenance under current ownership included a new head gasket, valve cover gasket and power steering gaskets. The most recent maintenance includes a new distributor cap and rotor with manually adjusted timing. This A124 is now offered for sale by the current owner in Austin, Texas with three keys, original manufacturer’s literature, a clean Carfax report and a clean Texas title in the seller’s name.
The exterior is finished in Light Ivory (623) and features a power-operated dark brown fabric soft top with a heated rear glass pane and a removable draft deflector. The seller notes that the power soft top is fully functional but the locking levers must be fully disengaged for operation. New soft top handles are included as the old units are said to have become brittle. Exterior features include power adjustable mirrors, headlamp wiper/washers and an automatic antenna which was replaced by the seller in 2021. The exterior presents well with no signs of damage or rust present and no accidents reported on the Carfax. The seller also notes that an aftermarket CarCraft car cover is included with the sale.
The 15” 8-hole alloy wheels come wrapped in a set of Michelin Sport Primacy tires measuring 195/65 on all four corners. The seller notes that some wheels show minor signs of curb rash and the tires show date codes from 2008 with plenty of tread remaining. The full-size spare tire can be found mounted below the trunk floor.
The cabin is trimmed in Brazil Leather (263) and features matching carpets, black floor mats and Burl Walnut wood trim lining the center console, dashboard and door panels. The wood trim is in good condition and shows no signs of cracking or discoloration. Both front seats are power operated with two-position memory for the driver. The front seats fold forward to allow access to the second row. Additional interior amenities include automatic climate control, cruise control, a power adjustable steering column, an Active Bass sound system, the original Becker Grand Prix Super 2000 radio, and seat belt extenders which the seller states are functional. The seller notes that the passenger sun visor is loose and is missing the plastic mirror cover. A replacement visor in black is included with the sale as well as a rear passenger rocker switch assembly.
The leather-wrapped steering wheel frames analog instrumentation including a 160-mph speedometer, a 7k-rpm tachometer, an analog clock and gauges for fuel level, oil pressure and coolant temperature. The six-digit odometer shows just 26k miles with 1,400 miles added by the current owner since 2017.
This Cabriolet is powered by a 3.2-liter 24-valve inline-six which is factory rated for 217 horsepower and 229 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission. Maintenance under current ownership includes a new head gasket, valve cover gaskets and power steering gaskets which were replaced by Mercedes-Benz of Autstin. The most recent maintenance included a new distributor cap and rotor with the timing manually adjusted. Service records from current ownership are complete with partial records included from prior owners.
The Carfax report shows linear mileage updates with registration in Florida and Texas and shows no accidents or damage reports. Included with the car is the original manufacturer’s literature consisting of the original service book, manual, sales brochure and color chart as well as the factory tool kit, spare tire and an aftermarket car cover. This 300CE is now offered for sale by the current owner in Austin, Texas with three keys, a clean Carfax report and a clean Texas title in the seller’s name.
A walk-around and power top demonstration video has been included by the seller below.
With no four-seater convertibles offered in the Mercedes lineup since the early 70’s, Mercedes introduced the 300CE cabriolet in 1991 featuring extensive chassis stiffening, windshield reinforcement, a power operated soft top and a pop-up roll bar. From an era where cost was not placed before engineering, the Sacco-era A124 has become known for its exceptional build quality, comfort and reliability. Underappreciated for many years, these cabriolets are starting to see a resurgence in popularity as collectors begin to recognize their rarity with less than 600 units reportedly produced for the 1993 model year. This example is as clean as they come showing just 26k original miles and sporting a highly desirable color combination. For a collector looking for the best in 90’s era Mercedes-Benz, this example presents the perfect opportunity to secure a timeless piece of what the brand represents.
