CC Outtake: 1994 Mercedes-Benz E300 Turbodiesel Cargo Van – Formerly Known As Kombi

1994 Mercedes-Benz E 300 TD - 1

This car doesn’t need any further introduction. Well, this specific example does, but certainly not the legendary Mercedes-Benz 124-series as a whole. The Benz I caught, left the factory as a Kombi (wagon) and was later converted into a two-seater cargo van.

The Kombi was imported into the Netherlands in 2003. Back then, it got a special (mal)treatment, resulting in a registration as a commercial vehicle.

A raised roof, blinded windows, rear seats out and a flat cargo floor in return…and your turbodiesel delivery van is ready to hit the road. The number 300 in the model designation still did justice to the engine-displacement: a 147 DIN-hp, 3.0 liter inline-six.

By the way, anyone happens to know the color code?
