1993 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series description
In the grand tradition of Mercedes-Benz touring convertibles, this 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300CE convertible offers bulletproof reliability combined with entertaining performance and room for four in first-class comfort. Really, is there a better way to spend a few hours than behind the wheel of a car like this?
Cutting the roof off an E-Class coupe was probably an obvious move, and it created a car that was a little less sporting than the SL but a bit more luxurious and elegant. Clean, unadorned lines make for a great-looking 4-seater, especially in black, and there's no question that this is a high-end motorcar with a lot of charisma. Fit and finish are, of course, to Mercedes-Benz standards and even after 20 years, it still wears its original paint. Of course, that paint was expensive, too, and has survived living in the warm southern US quite well, with just minor signs of age and use, certainly in line with its price and mileage. Built at a time when engineers, not marketers, ruled the Mercedes-Benz headquarters, quality is tangible but the styling is conservative, which is how many folks prefer their luxury cars. There's not much chrome, but the bright trim that is on the car looks great and the lower cladding in dark gray makes the car look long and sleek.
Theblack leather interior is equally stylish and sleek, showing a few luxurious touches like real burled walnut on the door panels and center console. The front buckets are supportive and comfortable for cross-country drives and the leather hides are in excellent condition; that's quality and excellent care doing that. Despite a lifetime in the sun, the dash pad, carpets, and other soft parts look great and it should all look familiar, as the Mercedes-Benz styling was nothing if not consistent. Just about everything was standard, including power windows, locks, mirrors, and seats, automatic climate control, cruise control, and a full array of easy-to-read gauges. The originaltop appears to have been replaced at some point in the cars life. It wasreplaced with a factory top.And speaking of the top, it works like it should.The trunk is remarkably spacious and nicely finished with matching carpets and even a courtesy light. This beauty also comes with the optional wind deflector. That alone is a$500.00 bonus!!
Power comes from a 3.2 liter DOHC inline-six that's as silky as a turbine and torquey enough to make the big convertible feel quick and light on its feet. It's also legendary for its durability and thanks to proper maintenance throughout its life it's still spry and smooth-running. The engine bay is extremely clean and it runs with a soft purr from the exhaust that's befitting a vehicle of this stature. Everything works, including the A/C, and the 4-speed automatic transmission is so unobtrusive that you might think the engine is electric, not internal combustion. The all-independent suspension is supple yet agile enough to be fun when the road starts to turn and braking is typical Mercedes-Benz: powerful. Original alloy wheels show no major wounds or curb rash and are wrapped in relatively recent 195/65/15 Michelin radials.
Where else will you find this much German elegance and class for so little cash? This is a car that can still be used as a daily driver or fair weather toy, all at a very reasonable price.
This car will be priced to sell. Perfect for the upcoming spring and summer driving season!!!
