Mercedes-Benz A124 Cabriolet (1990-1997) Facts and Figures
The Mercedes-Benz A124 Cabriolet is over 30 years old now and is actually one of the rarer E-Class Mercedes that exists today. The vehicles' production period was from 1990 to 1997. We are lucky enough to have a 1994 European spec model and a 1995 US spec model here at Classic Trim Parts.
The all-encompassing designation from Mercedes is W124, which is then split into other codes based on the body style of the vehicle. The A124 is the convertible body style under that W124 designation.
Mercedes has published the production figures for the A124 Cabriolet, debuting with the 300 CE-24 Cabriolet in 1990. Following the debut of the A124, the E320 and E220 Cabriolets came shortly after in 1992, and finally the E200 and ultra rare E36 AMG Cabriolets in 1993.

These vehicles were over $153,000 in 2022 inflation adjusted dollars!
With just under 34,000 vehicles produced and sold worldwide, some may wonder how many are still in existence. In the United States, only 6,140 were sold here. With numbers of good-condition vehicles dwindling year over year, these cars are becoming even more rare than they once were.
Based on A124 Cabriolets sold on Bring a Trailer, prices can range quite a bit depending on the mileage and different packages fitted onto the vehicle. Higher mileage, decent condition vehicles range between $15,000 and $25,000, while the lower mileage and pristine condition vehicles can sell for over $40,000! With the number of available Cabriolets falling each year, prices may soon creep up even higher than these current figures.
