Clean is Clean: 1994 E420

Recently listed for sale in Lake Mary, FL, this 1994 E420 presents very nicely in photos. The car currently has 125k miles (4,700 miles/year) and has received a laundry list of recent maintenance items. While the E420 and 400E's often get overlooked due to the popularity of the 500E, these cars are actually a huge value for anyone looking to get similar 500E performance and the build quality of a W124.

Finished in Black (040) over Palomino interior, this color combo is gorgeous and highly sought after. The seats appear to be in excellent condition both front and rear. Unfortunately, no photo is given of the dash or center console but we expect there could be typical hair line cracks in the veneer. Still, the seller states the car has always been garage kept and condition of the paint certainly supports that. As always, we recommend a PPI, in-person inspection, or additional photos to help confirm.

The M119 V8 was rated at 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque when new. A list of recent maintenance items is below:

- New lower control arm bushings

- New tie-rods New water pump

- New/replaced engine wire harness with non-biodegradable OEM (affected MB from ’92-95) - New belt New fuel pump and fuel filters

- New power steering pump seals

- New cap & rotors

The seller states the wheels have also been professionally refinished. These staggered 17" monoblocks likely came from a W202 C43 AMG or W208 CLK55 coupe. Considering this is a facelift W124 with key maintenance items including a new non-biodegradable wiring harness replaced, the seller's asking price of $8,000 seems very reasonable.
