Description for Mercedes-Benz 300-Series 1993

1993 Mercedes-Benz 300CE Convertible – VIN WDBEA66E3PB848296 For your consideration is my clean 1993 124-chassis Mercedes-Benz 300CE Convertible – the last of the handbuilt Mercedes 4-seat cabriolets – which sold for over $80. 00 new in 1993. Wearing just over 110. 00 miles (just over 5K/year average). this car has been our family weekend cruiser for the past three years. As a freelance automotive journalist. I’m now on to my next project and am thinning the herd. I have 2 factory keys. original books and manuals and some service records. This is the more unusual pre-facelift 124 cabrio and was a one-year-only car in 1993 with the earlier styling and the later DOHC 3. 2 liter engine. The key major service item on these cars is the wiring harness. which as been replaced on this car. The car does not show any sign of fluid leaks. and the check engine light cycles properly but goes off as it should after the car is started. The oil was changed about 500 miles ago. at which time the battery was also replaced. The underhood insulation is tired and falling down. and a new pad conveys with the car (just haven’t gotten around to installing it!). On the inside. this car is in very nice original condition. The black feintuft velour carpet is in excellent condition. and is covered with factory carpet floormats. The power leather seats and dash are crack and rip free showing only the slightest patina of age and there are a few spots where seat seams have separated slightly. The burl wood trim is very nice. There are no foul odors – there doesn’t appear to have ever been any smoking or leaks inside. The air conditioning. power windows. heated seats. convertible top. and power locks all work properly. and the car is current on the stringent Virginia emissions and safety inspections. The factory radio turns on and off properly. and the power antenna goes up and down as it should. There is also a CD changer located in the trunk. Outside. the car is remarkably straight save for a few small parking lot dings. I have not seen any sign of rust anywhere on the car. The Pearl Black paint carries a nice shine. and the doors shut with the appropriate thunk. All of the lenses are in good. clear condition. The alloy wheels are original-style but larger 16” versions wearing brand-new Continental DWS all-season performance tires. There is a spare tire in the trunk along with a complete tool kit and jack. The convertible top is in fine serviceable condition. but is not new and shows some sign of age. although we have never experienced and leaks of note. There is a small patch in the vinyl trim on the power top cover. The interior headliner is in very nice condition. The motor starts easily and settles to a very smooth idle. The power steering functions properly. and the 4-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly. and the shifter bushings replaced recently. There are no odd noises or whines from the driveline. The brakes are in good condition and do not pull. The car pulls like a freight train and achieves super-legal speeds in the blink of an eye.
