1991 Mercedes Benz 300TE-24 3.4 AMG [ECC-241]



Rare Japan market pre-merger AMG Upgraded 300TE Wagon with full set of AMG engine, chassis and body modifications.

Very special and unique 1991 Mercedes Benz 300TE-24 3.4 AMG that was imported from Japan.  Built during the pre-merger era, this 300 TE wagon is an excellent example of a well-maintained AMG special that underwent the full AMG treatment with a 3.4 build done to it by AMG Japan.  Overall condition is very good inside and out and the car runs well.

The dramatic silver exterior features a lowered profile and unique bumper and sill covers.  Car is fitted with a factory sunroof, roof rails and AMG badges.  Paint shows well, but does display minor signs of wear typical of a car that has been driven.  Equipped with EVO style 6 spoke wheels and fresh Michelins on all 4 corners, this car has excellent balance and handling while still delivering an extremely comfortable ride quality.

The interior is in well preserved condition throughout.  The perforated leather seats are in good shape with some minor wear and creasing. There are matching checkerboard floor mats over clean carpeting and the headliner is in excellent condition.  The impressive dashboard offers a full complement of instruments and controls, and a center console.  The ample wood trim makes an upscale impression, but does show some signs of aging consistent with the vintage.  A Sony CD audio unit is fitted.  One special feature is the rear facing third seat that adds utility.  The Mercedes 300 series wagon is an outstanding design that provides ample space and functionality.

Under the hood lies the exciting heart of the matter - the AMG motor. Ordered as a 990 option car, this 300TE 24 valve has a M104 that was modified by AMG with a larger bore and a longer stroke for a displacement increase to 3.4 liters. The valvetrain was also fitted with AMG camshafts, contributing to claimed output of 268 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 243 lb-ft. of torque at 4,500 rpm. The air filter housing is topped by an AMG-branded lid. The stampings on the engine show the appropriate BOSCH, BERU, and Champion C9.  AMG stampings on the front radiator support are still in place marking authenticity.

Will come with California title - Registration in other states subject to local regulations.


The Mercedes-Benz 300TE is part of the W124 generation of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which was in production from 1984 to 1996.  The 1991 Mercedes Benz 300TE is the wagon version of Mercedes W124 series.  Offering many innovative features and advanced engineering along with attractive styling and functional design, the series was very successful remaining in production for over 10 years.

The W124 series, including the 300TE, is highly regarded among Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts. It is noted for its build quality, durability, and timeless, functional design. The AMG conversion offers significant performance and handling upgrades and is rarely found on a wagon.

This W124 model was a Japan market car that received a full AMG conversion in Japan. 

AMG had been started as an aftermarket concern offering performance upgrades for Mercedes-Benz models.  Their conversions being well engineered and favorably received AMG developed a special relationship with the factory and eventually were merged with Mercedes in 1999 becoming the performance brand within Mercedes.  Prior to the merger AMG would modify production cars independently which were then marketed direct thru Mercedes.
