    Default She gon' hit it once and never call you back ! that w124 estate wagon

    Good day to all, I haven't been on here too much lately (a few years) so let me introduce myself... The names Eric and currently residing in Northern Colorado, at the base of the Rockies. Had a few rides here and there back in the day; slammed a few, bagged a couple others and threw in some stance here and there for play. Currently building my 1994 Mercedes Benz E320 Estate (S124). Damn she's about to get it in tho and be a true classic . hella pic heavy too friends

    Check the dope story behind this estate. It was purchased brand new in Beverly Hills, California back in '94 by Clair Peck Jr., owner of Clair Peck Contractors, he was a big shot who literally built most of Southern California, Los Angeles to be exact; from the 70's to the late 80's (including buildings such as Capital Records Building to Bonaventure Hotel and Library Tower to the Crystal Cathedral and the Orange County Performing Arts Center) He maintained it and serviced it regularly at the Beverly Hills Mercedes location while owning it. His wife sold it back to the dealership in the early 2000's , a few years after his passing. It was than purchased by a buyer located in Denver, Colorado, who than had the vehicle shipped. It was driven locally and regularly maintained at Stu Ritter Mercedes in Denver and Mercedes of Denver until sold to the previous owner in 2007. After being sold to the 3rd owner, it sat garaged and rarely driven over the next 10 years, and they only added 30,000 miles to the clock leaving it at 152,xxx when I picked her up. All service records are with the vehicle along with every service receipt from purchase, including the ORIGINAL contract Peck signed when he bought it, trading in his pristine 1990 Cadillac Deville. All Original Everything. Must say, pretty proud of where she came from and how bad shes about to get..

    - Year: 1994 - Make: Mercedes Benz

    W chassis is not a thing. All regular 4 door sedan Benzes are "W" something. Current E class is W213. This one is actually an S124, as wagons use the S prefix.

    I love the information in this and a well documented thread! its great to know where a car has been in its life.

    i also like the information above, i am not a Mercedes person nor do i have much knowledge on them! Hope you have some progression on this boat soon.

    also, is that front bumper missing something or are they really that high in stock form!?

    Thanks, amigo, I am excited as well. Unfortunately, the previous owner's (In Denver) found a high curb one day at the market and the front bottom grille was pulled off. As you can see the driver side is still intact, in which will give you the correct look your seeking.
