Good Morning Everyone!! Lot #3 on CCC!
I am Happy to Present the W124 300E to the CCCC, Collector Car Canada Community!
I want to thank The MasterMind behind the creation of this wonderful Site. David. True Car enthusiast and a StandUp Guy. My new friend. I encourage You to List your Collector car with David. Total breeze, From the Start and I can Feel the breeze will rule the whole process.
David experienced US Auction Online sites, and the experience He and I had: American ‘Winners’ facing the importation cost, cancelled their purchase, not having the shoulders to Walk-Their-Talk, on less than 10000$ car. Buyer’s fees are not High Enough! IMHO.
That is What Canadians experiment When They sell cars below 10000K. Buyers throw the Towel.
NO BS: Full Transparency.
This dramatic scenario ends with CCC. Welcome Heaven!!
So going back to the Car: Brilliant W124 300E, in Nautical Blue here.
MB brought All the knowledge learned from 60+ years of Experience, including Amazing Success they got with iconic W123, and created next generation, the W124.
The Result is Stunning. Bigger, Wider. Bank Vault on Wheel, part 2.
The Odo was changed at 100K. Reset to zero. 39k kms since then.
Car shows 39000 kms on CarFax.
The car drives likes a 39K kms car. Looks Gorgeous. Only a small Rust Repair quarter panel driver side, left. a Little Love and it’s back ShowRoom Again.
Pictures of Undercarriage will be uploaded today Monday, Max Tuesday.
Feel Free to Ask any question.
A lot of Life in that Car. Let’s say another 34 years. An Acquisition that You can Transfer to Next Generation when time will come. Collector Grade. Transfer to the next generation, and the Next Again probably, hopefully.
Mercedes-Benz reaches 100th Birthday in 5 years. Time to Buy Now!
GO FOT it! Time to Buy is NOW.
Bid, and Bid a Lot!! You won’t regret the Acquisition. Balance Sheet Worthy. A true GEM!
PS: Car was in the same family for 34 years. Grand Pa, 33 1/2 years of ownership. Transferred to GrandDaughter 6 months, not into Collector car. Found Paul. Find YOU!
thank you, @Rubbereyes. We figure the seller will read these.
My comment on the rust is based on many years of car ownership in Ontario. I see that kind of rust that’s shown in the pictures and I know, based on my experience, that there is going to be more rust that, yes, would be evident on chassis pictures. So I would ask the owner and his representative, to show chassis pictures in detail as that information is important not only in Quebec and Ontario but all provinces and US cars. It’s extremely important information to make a decision on a used vehicle purchase. Unfortunately not all have the ability to go a view the auction item in person.
Seller is representing the car for a friend and has Quebec registration in hand and custody. Listing has been updated appropriately.
@Rubbereyes – thank you for kicking off the comments and for being part of the growing CCC community.
We refer you to the commenting guidelines on our FAQ page, one particular applicable phrase is “fact over speculation and guesswork”. We understand why you would be concerned about rust, though a speculative statement like yours is not the responsible approach. We would encourage you to ask the seller to post photos of the underside or any other specific areas of concern. If he is smart, he will come to you with a constructive reply. For this seller, specifically, let’s consider that he has included close-ups of the disclosed rust areas for this auction, what he has voluntarily said about the odometer and that he has included underside shots in his other auctions.
The beauty of the public forum and a one-week auction is that they enable visible-for-all due diligence to get the buyer the car he expects and the seller a market price.
Everyone is new here so we give you the benefit of the doubt and are going to leave the comment you wrote as is. Over to you.
I’ll bet there’s a lot of hidden rust. Too bad.
