This 1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 Wagon was sold new and registered in South Florida. Since new, it’s spent time in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Indiana, where it’s currently located. The included Carfax notes the title as rebuilt status due to light flood damage in 2009, which occurred during ownership in PA. The current owner and seller has spent over 3 years and many documented hours restoring this example back to life with Genuine Mercedes and OE parts along with period-correct upgrades. Finished in Black (040) over a Black (171) MB-Tex interior, power comes from a 3.2-liter straight six paired to a four-speed automatic transmission and a Quaife limited slip differential, changing the gearing to 3.06 on a 185mm differential housing. Features include an electric tilt/slide sunroof, cruise control, automatic climate control, and a rear cargo net. This E320T currently shows 109k miles on the odometer and is offered with a number of OEM upgrades, manufacturer's literature, two sets of original keys, maintenance documentation, various spare parts, a Carfax report, and a rebuilt Indiana title. Due to the age of the vehicle, Indiana has marked the odometer as exempt on mileage, though the seller states the mileage is in fact accurate and true. The seller also includes a speedometer with the correct gearing to accommodate the Quaife LSD.
The car is finished in Black (040) and retains all original body panels showing no signs of rust or clear coat failure. The seller has had all body cladding panels refinished and repainted with the original color Alto Grey Metallic, which show perfectly without wear, scuffs or rock chipping. The chrome strips on the bumpers and cladding show no signs of pitting and present well. Exterior features on this wagon includes clear corner marker lights, a genuine Lorinser rear spoiler, factory roof rack cross bars, and a de-badged rear hatch. The seller notes the hood and fenders have been repainted as a result of various rock chips. The original glass has been tinted and remains intact.
This E320 wagon wears staggered 17” AMG Monoblock wheels showing machine turned lips and measure 17x7.5" up front and 17x8.5" in the rear. The wheels are wrapped in new Continental Extreme Contact tires which were installed on 9/20/2021. The wheels show no signs of curb rash or bends while the Continental tires show new tread and no signs of uneven wear. An extra pair of rear 17x8.5" rear AMG Monoblocks are included with the sale as well as a square set of stock W124 wheels for use in winter, though the seller recommends replacement tires for the square set.
The cabin is trimmed in Black (171) MB-Tex across the seats, door cards, head rests, center console, and armrest. The OEM steering wheel has been replaced with a black leather and wood Nardi four-spoke steering wheel and Nardi wheel hub. A Zebrano wood-style knob has been added to match the wood veneers on the center console, dash, and door cards, and the original shift knob will be included in the sale. Interior features include power adjustable mirrors, power adjustable front seats, automatic climate control, and an aftermarket stereo. The OEM head unit has been replaced with a unit featuring bluetooth and auxiliary capabilities while the door speakers have also been upgraded. Aftermarket McIntosh and MBQuart amplifiers accompany the stereo modifications and the entire shell of the car has been wrapped in Dynamat insulation. The seller notes the rear headrests are missing. OEM Mercedes-Benz all-weather “HexMats” are included in the sale and shown in the gallery below. The 3rd row seat is included in the sale, and the rear amplifiers can be easily converted back and the 3rd row seat installed.
The analog odometer currently shows 109,100 original miles. Instrumentation includes a 160-mph speedometer, a 7k-rpm tachometer with a 6400-rpm redline, and an analog odometer with trip function. Additional gauges include fuel level, coolant temperature, oil pressure, an analog clock, and a digital external temperature gauge.
The 3.2-liter M104 inline six was rated at 217 horsepower and 229 lb-ft of torque when new and is paired to a 722.3 (4G-Tronic) automatic four-speed transmission. A recent compression test was performed at cold and warm temps and shows strong compression. Results can be seen in the gallery. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a Quaife limited-slip differential. A hard-to-find and rebuilt 2.7 ratio “Sportline” steering box from a W124 Sportline Sedan has been added to this example, making the steering ratio quicker than the standard 3.1 on stock S124’s. The seller notes that more than $10,000 has been spent ensuring this wagon has been properly restored. Photos of the underbody, subframe, chassis, and floor pans have been added to the gallery below showing build progress in various steps.
