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.

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA order guide leaked

Wed, 06 Feb 2013 11:00:00 EST

The dealer order guide for the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA has made its way online courtesy of the crew at CLAForums.com, and not only does it shed light on the ways buyers will be able to configure the entry-level sedan, it talks specific option pricing. Shoppers will be able to select between the CLA250 and CLA250 4Matic, and the option sheet should offer a number of packages to suit buyer tastes, including a sport package with tweaked fascias and unique wheels. Bi-xenon headlamps and 18-inch alloys may also be had as well as a panoramic sunroof and a collision avoidance system. The CLA will be available with a number of active safety systems on board, including lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, park assist and blind spot assist, to name a few.
The new sedan comes in 10 colors, including a very dashing purple Mecedes-Benz calls Northern Lights Violet, and there are a total of four interior trim finishes. The automaker hasn't released final pricing of all models just as of yet - we do know from Mercedes' Kate Upton Super Bowl ad that the car will start at $29,900 - but you can check out individual option and package pricing in the gallery. You can also find more information over at CLAForums.com.

Mercedes releases 6x6 G63 AMG specs and pics [w/video]

Fri, 15 Mar 2013 12:45:00 EST

Mercedes-Benz has finally dropped full details on its insane G63 AMG 6x6. The machine puts 544 horsepower to all six wheels thanks to a twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V8. A seven-speed gearbox shuttles power to the ground via three sets of portal axles, which helps give this machine a full 15.75 inches of ground clearance. By comparison, the standard G63 AMG sits with just 8.27 inches of ground clearance. The extra lift allows this 6x6 to ford nearly 40 inches of water and run massive 37-inch tires. All told, there are five differential locks on this thing, all controlled by a special "locking logic" that provides the best traction possible for any given situation.
The controls offer up three stages of locking, which we can only assume range from JKLOL to OMGWTF. Right now, AMG says this monstrosity is only a show vehicle, but we imagine it wouldn't take much to convince the team to whip up one of your very own. Check out our full gallery and the press release below for all the nitty gritty. While you're down there, you can also check out the video on the machine one more time.

New details emerge on forthcoming Mercedes-Benz SLC

Sat, 02 Feb 2013 14:45:00 EST

Last we heard, the Mercedes-Benz SLC had been put on indefinite hold, but now Car Magazine is reporting that the Porsche 911-fighting "Baby SLS" coupe could be on sale by 2015. Riding on a modified SLS AMG chassis, the smaller and lighter SLC could be priced in the sub-$100,000 price bracket.
We'd already heard that the new car would feature conventional doors (instead of SLS-like gullwing doors), but this report focuses on some of the possible powertrains Mercedes-Benz is likely to use. At launch, the SLC could offer a pair of V8-powered models - a 485-horsepower SLC and a 585-hp SLC S - both being powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. About a year after launch, a new V6 model could emerge giving the SLC an estimated 333 horsepower and its lowest price point.
It also sounds like the car's name hasn't been completely finalized as some people within Mercedes are favoring a return of the SLR name.
