Got a thing for old wagons? Well, most probably not, but the few who do might want to sneak a peek at this 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300TE which, despite having 151,000 miles (243,000 km) on its odo, appears very well kept.
This can be the type of car that stands out from the crowd despite its age and non-spectacular, utilitarian nature. The exterior is painted metallic silver and features an AMG-style body kit comprised of custom front and rear bumper covers and side skirts.
Other visual mods include the clear corner and rear turn signal lenses, plus the black-finished grille, hood emblem and roof rails. The wheels meanwhile measure 18-inches in diameter and are also painted black, matching the aftermarket tint of the windows.
The cabin looks really clean and according to the Bring a Trailer ad, the car has been equipped with black leather electrically-adjustable front seats from a W124 500E model, along with matching carpets. It also comes with Zebrano wood trim, a power sunroof, a wood shift knob, Kenwood head unit, cruise control and air conditioning.
As for the engine, it’s the old 3.0-liter M103 inline-six unit, paired with a four-speed automatic. The seller reportedly serviced the car recently, adding new spark plugs, front suspension bushings and lower control arms.
The best part about this car as far as we’re concerned is definitely its looks. We’re pretty sure wagon aficionados could get behind having something like this in their driveway, if only for the mild exclusivity, as well as its practicality. At the time of writing, and with three days left into the auction, the highest bid was $5,100, so it should be relatively affordable too.
