Custom Mercedes E320 Pickup For Sale
This isn’t a factory Mercedes pickup, but it’s pretty close.
A few months ago, we saw a Saturn SL2 that had been “modified” into a pickup of sorts. It was a “look at what I did with the Sawzall” sort of build. The redneck version of a Subaru Brat. This Mercedes is about as far from the Sawzall Saturn as it’s going to get.
A company called Binz, a coachbuilder that makes limousine and ambulance versions of Mercedes-Benz models, is responsible. If you peruse their current offerings, they’re both pricey and well-built. Go back a few years, and they built this 2000 Mercedes-Benz E320. The fine people over at Germancarsforsaleblog.com spotted this one on eBay.
This would be a heckuva buy even without the pickup conversion. It’s a one-owner, 20,990 mile E320 with a few choice options, including AMG wheels – it’s just too bad they’re not the three-piece ones. Binz replaced the rear bench with a set of front seats. Between those thrones is a mini-fridge. Because after a certain point, why not?
If you look closely, the pickup bed appears to have some parts from an E-Class wagon. The lower part of the hatch is the tailgate and the rear hatch glass serves as a rear window.
The bed gets a rugged diamond plate floor and what looks like a plastic bed liner. Though not immediately apparent, the bed also has LED lights in the bed rails.
So, what’s something like this worth? The ad mentions that “Over $49,000 alone spent on the conversion in 2000.” Since this is a 2000 model, Binz converted this E320 right after it rolled off the assembly line. What’s clear is that the owner thinks it’s worth more than $12,332. The eBay listing got 21 bids and failed to meet the reserve price, so you may still have a chance to score a Mercedes pickup.
