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.

Paul di Resta returns to DTM with Mercedes

Tue, 21 Jan 2014 15:40:00 EST

Some drivers manage to make the transition from one form of motor racing into another, and some run into trouble. Take Paul di Resta, for example. The promising young Scottish driver dominated Formula 3 racing in Europe in 2006, then moved over to Germany's hugely competitive DTM touring car series where he finished second in 2008, third in 2009 and first in 2010. But things didn't go as smoothly for Paul - cousin to retired Indy champion Dario Franchitti - when he moved in to Formula One with the Force India team.
In three years on the grid, he failed to score a single podium finish. Little surprise, then, that Force India opted not to renew his contract for this season. Left without a ride, di Resta is now going back to DTM with longtime supporter Mercedes-Benz, testing the new C-Class touring car today in Portugal. It's good news for Mercedes, which is celebrating 120 years in motor racing this season and, with 2005 champion Gary Paffett also on board, can now count two former champions on its DTM roster.
We wouldn't count Paul out of F1 for good, though. When he won the DTM title four years ago, he was also moonlighting as Force India's test driver, and we wouldn't be surprised to see him pull similar double-duty with the Mercedes F1 team (or another Benz-powered outfit) this year before spring-boarding back into grand prix racing in the future. At 27 years old, he may not have been the youngest driver on the grid this year, but he's still got a good few years ahead of him.

2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 still lights our fire

Wed, 06 Mar 2013 11:01:00 EST

The current Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG may be in the autumn of its years, but it's still one of our very favorite sport sedans. Ever. Yes, its paddle-shift transmission may not always follow orders, but with stupendous levels of thrust from its charismatic naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8, ebullient rear-wheel-drive dynamics and that noise, we frankly don't care that it's getting on a bit.
As a sendoff of sorts for the current generation, Mercedes-Benz has just introduced a new Edition 507 model at the Geneva Motor Show, with 507 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque - an increase of 56 horses over the standard car. Mercedes credits the substitution of low-mass internals from the SLS AMG gullwing for the power bump, a tactic shared with the AMG Development Package upgrade that has been subsumed by this Edition 507. 0-60 is quoted at 4.1 seconds and top speed at 174 mph.
The Edition 507 borrows its aluminum hood from the C63 AMG Black Series Coupe, along with spidery new 19-inch wheels in either titanium gray finish or matte black with shiny rim flanges. As seen on our gallery car above, a sports striping package is also featured, as are glossy black grille, daytime running lamps, spoiler and mirror caps.

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.
