A great, usable example of the perennially desirable 124 Cabriolet. Registered in March 1996, this E220 was nicely specified in one of the most desirable colours of Azurite Blue metallic with grey leather interior and the sought after Sportline package and heated seats.
In the same family ownership since 2001, it passed from father to son in 2015. The mileage stands at just 95,431 miles thanks to spending much of its life as a second/weekend car.
Part service history – the service book is the with the car containing seven stamps. A major service carried out in 2015 at 92k miles and we have just carried out a service and inspection in our workshop at the current mileage.
As the photos show this Cabriolet is in very clean and tidy condition throughout. The body is very good with none of the usual corrosion to the late 124 rust spots. The inner wings and rear wheel-arches are perfect and it has never been welded. The paintwork is very good with only a few blemishes. Original alloys in great order with good tyres all round.
The interior is also very good with superb leather and woodwork. All accessories work as intended.
The convertible hood is in good order and all works as it should.
On the road drives very well with perfect oil pressure and temperature readings. Nice and tight with smooth gear-changes and sharp handling.
Overall a very nice 124 Cabriolet with sensible miles that has been in long term ownership. Very solid, in good order throughout and just serviced. Perfect for regular use over the summer to come. A very stylish four-seat convertible.
