1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 Cabriolet
1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 Cabriolet
1995 showed Mercedes-Benz in their last year of a build that consisted of cars that were over-engineered, and the E320 is the true definition of this. With its folding German canvas top that melts seamlessly into the chassis when lowered and done totally automatically! Also 1 switch controls all 4 windows, and under the hood was the 3.2 Liter inline 6-cylinder that was one of the longest lasting engines Mercedes-Benz ever built.
For consignment, a documented low mileage car, (44,792 original miles, however the title states 45,000 miles)…this car is merely being broken in. Couple this with an owner that obsessively cared for and maintained this car and always kept it safely stored in the garage. You have a car that has a lot of value…low mileage, AND real reliability.
Design wise ahead of anything else of its time, this Midnight Blue painted car looks like the part of a well maintained and garage kept treasure. A few visible scuffs and chips are noted throughout but nothing bad enough to kick the car out of bed for eating crackers. All panels are essentially perfect, and doors slam with that quintessential Mercedes-Benz “thud”. The blue canvas top works perfectly going down but does occasionally stick and does not want to go back up, and if you were not watching it, you would swear it was never even on the car as it just totally disappears! When it's up there is no visible evidence of bows or mechanisms. With matching bumpers and premium chrome, this car screams you have arrived, but not with the noise of its powerful engine or throaty exhaust, but with just class, and quality of build. Very similar to a debutante floating down the curved stairway ready to come out and sign her name on the social register. Rounding out the exterior are 15-inch alloy wheels with a heavy amount of corrosion and clean coat degradation.
Beige leather wraps electronically adjustable seats and will accommodate virtually any size driver. These seats have only minimal wear in the form of age wrinkling, but no tearing or color rub off. A burl center console houses the power window option, power convertible top, as well as the seat heater switches, gear selector, radio, AM/FM/Cassette player, and climate controls. The electronic dash has virtually every monitoring light one could imagine, and holds on to the analog speedo, clock, tach, oil pressure, fuel gauge, and engine temp gauges. Fronting this dash is the all business black steering wheel with levers for cruise control, intermittent wipers, and steering column adjustment. More beige carpeting floods the floors for both the front and rear seat passengers and looks almost as good as the day it left the Sindelfingen factory. Hand built, and a mere 3,000 produced in 1995, and you have something very special. My dear, increase the output of the concerto music on the MB stereo.
A Mercedes M104 3.2 Liter inline 6 engine hand built produces 217hp and is fed by EFI. On the back is a 4-speed automatic transmission that sends power back to a 3.07 geared rear axle.
Some very light surface rust is showing up here and there, but it is all definitely unremarkable. Ground effects per se with the floor pans which are a nice patina factory black, and no rust seen anywhere on these. Independent double wishbone suspension with coil springs is upfront, and independent 5 link coil spring suspension on back. Power disc brakes are on all 4 corners.
I climbed in and breathed in the personality that this car exudes. Sometimes feisty, always ready for whatever, and one could expect a stellar performance from this car when they were put to the task at hand. This car performed beautifully for a 6 banger, and with the top down I felt like a million bucks. An overall excellent car with the only frowns being the aforementioned issue with the top, the power antenna not working and the passenger's rear window only going up from the rear passenger seat position.
Looking for a reliable sporty nimble convertible that will go on for another 200 to 300K miles? Stop looking and get in here it's going to go quickly just like it did on the test drive.
