THIS IS A NO RESERVE LISTING.

This is my 1986 Classic Motor Carriages (CMC) Gazelle, a replica of the 1929 Mercedes SSK roadster.  This car has only 3810 original miles since new.

Gazelle Mercedes replicas were built by Classic Motor Carriages in Miami, Florida.  They used several chassis/drivetrain options, and this one, the Mustang chassis with the Mustang 2.8L V6, automatic transmission and air conditioning, was the best quality, most powerful and most highly optioned of their vehicles.   You could order a Gazelle with a Volkswagen Beetle motor, a Ford or Chevy 4-cylinder, or this one, the 2.8L V6.  This is the best of all the Gazelle cars, with the most power, best sounding engine, best performance and easy parts availability.

This car is equipped with air conditioning, but it doesn't currently work.  I'm sure it could be made to work if someone wanted, but as a convertible fun car, who really needs it?  This car also has a heater, which not all of them did.

This car has a folding convertible top in good condition. 

The exterior and paint and body of this Gazelle Mercedes are good.  The car is straight and clean with no major defects.  The undercarriage is superbly clean and solid.  After all, this car has always been garaged and never winter-driven, nor even driven in the rain. 

The interior is in good shape.  The seats are very presentable, with some tape over a few split seams and some minor interior wear typical of the age of the car, but it looks good overall.  The previous owner covered up the small rear seat with an enclosure that could be removed if you wanted access to the rear seats again. 

The hood has been painted with an expensive Ford "flop" color that looks green from one angle, purple from another.  It looks really neat on the car.

This car starts, runs and drives well.  The Ford 2.8L V6 is powerful and sounds great. The carburetor is brand new.  The automatic transmission shifts well and the brakes, steering and handling are good.  

This is a replica kit car of a 1929 vehicle, so please don't expect 2014 Mercedes build quality or stability.  You won't be taking the highway at 140 mph or taking this car on long cross-country road trips.  It is totally reliable and dependable, it just doesn't have the creature comforts of a modern new car and it has certain rattles, etc.  This would make a great fun car, weekend car or a car to take to local cruise-ins.  This car gets TONS of attention.  You can't drive a quarter mile without someone waving or asking questions about it.   Everybody loves this car! 

Many folks replace the Gazelle logos and hood ornaments with Mercedes logos, which has not been done to this car.  You could certainly buy those logos and put them on the car easily- it would certainly keep people guessing! 

This car has a clean and clear OH title ready to transfer.  It is titled as a 1986 "Homemade Gaz 2D" serial number B9242.

This car is kept in my garage in Willoughby, OH.

Carlsson turns Mercedes-Benz SLK into 610-HP hill-climb clawer

Mon, 28 Jan 2013 08:00:00 EST

Carlsson's race-tuned versions of the Mercedes-Benz SLK have been taking checkered flags for years, and we won't be surprised if its SLK 340 hill climber fares any different. Developed by multiple German and Swiss hill climb champion Reto Meisel, the carbon-bodied SLK 340 with lightweight brakes and a closed underbody weighs 1,716 pounds. Propelling that tiny bit of weight is a 3.4-liter V8 from Judd with 610 horsepower, and it rolls on 18-inch wheels shod in Avon tires.
It will debut at the Geneva Motor Show before beginning its racing campaigns in the summer. This one won't just tear up roads in Europe, though - Meisel says he plans on bringing it to the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. The press release below has more details.

New Mercedes Unimog debuts to the cheers of little boys everywhere [w/video]

Sat, 27 Apr 2013 17:01:00 EST

The Mercedes Unimog, the superhero villain of the off-road world that's just waiting to make the jump to Transformer, has been completely upgraded for its new generation. There are ten models, expanding the range and getting new designations across the traditional all-terrain series and the implement-carrier series. Panoramic cabins get more visibility, multifunction steering wheels and better dash clusters, improved HVAC and a three-mode central tire inflation system. Outside, there are new items like LED headlights and daytime running lamps in the bumper, roof-mounted windshield wipers and a front-camera monitor for the implement carrier.
The new engine lineup is compliant with Euro VI, featuring four- and six-cylinder BlueEfficiency engines putting out anywhere from 156 horsepower to 354 hp. Powerplant placement has also been tweaked, the chassis members getting a revised curve to place the engine a bit further back and lower, maintaining off-road clearance and lowering the Unimog's center of gravity. The new location of the engine means the cabin has more room, and the wheelbase is shorter. Combined with a higher turning angle, the Unimog has a smaller turning radius than before.
The implement carrier gets what's called a "synergistic traveling drive," the bonus being that drivers don't need to stop in order to use an attachment - a hydrostatic transmission works with the regular manual transmission at up to 31 kilometers per hour for seamless switching.

These cars are headed to the Great Crusher In The Sky

Fri, 24 Aug 2012 14:58:00 EST

It happens every year. We bid adieu to some cars and trucks that will be missed, and say good riddance to others wondering how they stayed around so long. Whether they're being killed off for slow sales or due to a new product coming along to replace them, the list of vehicles being discontinued after 2012 is surprisingly long and diverse.
CNN Money has compiled a list of departing vehicles, to which we've added a few more of our own. In the slow sales column, cars like the Lexus HS 250h, Mercedes-Benz R-Class and the full Maybach lineup appear, while the Ford Escape Hybrid, Mazda CX-7 and Hyundai Veracruz are all having their gaps filled with more modern and more fuel-efficient alternatives. Obvious exceptions to the rule include models that still sell in decent numbers like the Jeep Liberty and the Chrysler Town & Country (which will eventually be replaced by a crossover-like vehicle).
Check out our gallery of discontinued cars above, then scroll down for more information.
