I think so too. You need to round out the collection. I like the W123 coupes. The W126 coupes seem to be too big for me.

Mine weighs 3650. What does your 124 weigh?

They drive small.

put a nice aluminum v8 under the hood and the car suddenly feels small.

i was thinking about my 500sec.

but i bet the 500e feels small too, when you mash the throttle.

i want one of them one of these days.

Capitalization is just so much work. I feel you all are smart enough to realize when the sentences begin with out it.

right?

1989 2,318 $53,880
1990 2,182 $55,700
1991 1,929 $57,350

1993 1,019 $61,000
1994 825 $61,600
1995 307 $63,000

Total: 13,160 (8 years in production)

Body Style W124

Introduced to U.S. as 300CE Fall 1987.
Facelifted and name changed to E320 Coupe Fall 1994.
I believe those numbers are dead on the money. Look like the numbers MBUSA used to have ( & I read years ago) on their website.

On price, the coupe was about 8-8.5k higher than the sedan in 1988. Think the msrp on the 4 door was about 46k or so.

Wonder where the other 2,733 1988 coupes are?

Try this link to the 16 year model overview of the E320 coupe.
I can't find these production and price figures posted there any longer.
But if memory serves me correctly, the figures from post one are correcet.

MUSA no longer has that information.

I am sitting at Enrique's shop. brought the coupe in for a change of bodily fluids (I always like to do that everytime I buy a "new/used" car.)

Sitting across from me is "fpharryc." He lives in Fresno, but he drives all the way down to L.A. to have Enrique work on his cars.

I love this community of friends, bound together by our love of Benzes.

He owns a white 1990 300CE with grey interiors. Enrique is working on it today. It is a very nice and classy looking car.

It feels like a coupe convention here today.

These are defintely limited production numbers for these cars. No limited editions just limited production!
