Mercedes score with quality list
Daimler’s description leaves you wanting more. It starts with the information that he has a complete checkbook with Mercedes. Thus, there is a service every 10,000 kilometers. Spain’s drought definitely makes for good cars. From the jack points to the sheet metal around the taillights, this car is described as rust-free. Even the underbody should be fine. Wheel arches are not flanged. Due to the 120 km/h speed limit in Spain, the Benz did not “burn” according to the seller.
Dynamic enthusiasts can look forward to the 5-speed gearbox from Getrag in first gear on the bottom left. In addition, there is a relatively wide range of equipment, including leather seats. The seller assumes that it is still the first skin from the factory. Dashboard is not cracked. Both point out that the Benz is mostly parked in the garage.
These points should be carefully checked before buying a Mercedes
Of course, a thorough inspection of the advertised car is highly recommended. Starting with a test drive. You can look through the history along with the seller: What has been done to the car? When did it happen? Who does the work and what is the quality of the results?
Classic car friends can use it
The worst drawback of the W 124 is its susceptibility to rust. Therefore, despite the description, it is worth carefully inspecting the car during the inspection. Shot jacking like a bum. It should be well known. But rust can also bite on the rear wheel arches, the ends of the front fenders, the floor panels in the engine compartment and other places on the cult Benz.
