W124 is the Mercedes-Benz internal chassis-designation for the 1984/85 to 1995/96 version of the Mercedes Benz E Class, as well as the first generation to be officially referred to as E-Class. Considered by many aficionados as the final 'hewn-from-granite' Mercedes-Benzes, they were admired for their bullet proof engineering - these models were built when Mercedes' reputation for build quality was at its zenith. 

The car we have here is a 1987 300E Automatic in Ivory with Green Leather. It was first registered on 01/03/1987 and belonged to a Dr Davies of Swansea who owned the car until 30/08/2013. In this time he took fastidious care of the vehicle. The service booklets show 26 services completed by Mercedes Benz during his ownership, the first 7 by Neyland Mercedes in Swansea (the selling dealer) and the next 19 By Carr's Mercedes in Exeter - it appears that Dr Davies moved to Sidmouth some time in 1993. It was serviced 'on the button' during his 26 year ownership and the lever arch file accompanying the car shows many invoices for the work done during this time. 

The car was then briefly owned by a Mr Colin Coates from Cheltenham who sold it on 10/10/2013 to a Mr Vandevelde from Northampton. During his 6 year ownership, there is evidence of remedial bodywork being completed, including replacement of both Rear Wheel arches, an invoice for £3,414 showing this work in 2015 at 146,872 miles. He also replaced the Water pump in 2014. 

The car was last owned by a Dr Savage, who part exchanged it with us. During his short tenure, he used the car regularly as his daily driver and did various works. This includes a new Alternator, AC conversion to modern R134 gas and a major service. 

Driving superbly and supplied with a brand new MOT, this stunning car represents great value, reliable, Classic Car ownership. I doubt there is another car out there with such a fantastic service record. It comes with the copy of Classic Car Mart in which it was featured in 2018, 2 sets of keys and a complete literature pack. The car is HPI clear and has a lever arch file of paperwork to accompany it - it even boasts its original number plates from the selling dealer in 1987 and original Blaupunkt Radio Cassette player. A lovely, original example.
