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.

Mercedes to market Tesla-powered 2014 B-Class EV in U.S.

Thu, 05 Jul 2012 08:29:00 EST

Looks like another Tesla Motors investor will be looking to cash in on their connection. Autoweek reports Mercedes-Benz will offer their B-Class in the U.S. with Tesla propulsion.
The magazine says their source at the German automaker confirms plans for a B-Class electric-only vehicle. While Tesla already provides battery packs for the battery-powered Smart ForTwo, the B-Class EV will reportedly have Tesla batteries, motor and other components. U.S. residents should be able to procure one sometime in 2014.
The same Mercedes source says plans for a hybrid B-Class have been postponed for now. Adding a range-extending, gasoline-powered engine to an electric vehicle would put the car into a different class for which rebates and incentives aren't as favorable in the States.

Mercedes-Benz intros long-wheelbase E-Class for China

Thu, 25 Apr 2013 10:30:00 EST

Long-wheelbase sedans are a pretty hot commodity in China, and to keep up with the competition, Mercedes-Benz has introduced an extended version of the 2014 E-Class sedan at the Shanghai Motor Show. Audi, BMW, Volvo and even Cadillac offer extended versions of sedans specific to the Chinese market, and now the E-Class L, shown off in E400L guise, will give luxury sedan buyers in China yet another option.
Compared to the standard 2014 E-Class sedan, the new China-spec E-Class L has been stretched by 5.5 inches - all of which goes to the rear-seat passengers. According to an article on China View from earlier in the year, the market for chauffeur-driven cars is growing in the Asian nation, so automakers need long-wheelbase models like the E-Class L in order to fully compete. As for what powers this stretched E-Class, it's available in three models: the diesel E260L, the V6-powered E300L and the E400 Hybrid.
The redesigned E-Class and the all-new A-Class are just the first of 20 new Mercedes-Benz products that will be introduced into the Chinese auto market by 2015. Scroll down for the full press release on long-wheelbase E.

Mercedes widens luxury sales gap on strong early CLA demand

Wed, 02 Oct 2013 14:31:00 EST

Mercedes-Benz CLA sales have been booming, with the Stuttgart-based manufacturer moving 2,300 of the sleek four-doors in its first week on sale. That is astonishing. Mercedes moved nearly twice as many CLAs (which start at $29,900) in one week than Jaguar, a brand that is on a very solid roll, sold in all of September. Ignoring the price differences between the Jag line and the CLA, that is still wildly impressive.
Mercedes has been pushing the CLA in television ads, using a shortened version of its Super Bowl spot, which starred William Dafoe, Usher and Kate Upton. "As the bargain entrance into the Mercedes portfolio, we weren't sure how luxury buyers would react," Kelly Blue Book auto analyst Alec Gutierrez told Bloomberg.
The CLA push was just part of MB's 6.7-percent increase in September sales, which were also helped along by a 17-percent jump in E-Class sales. That surge has allowed Mercedes to widen its 2013 sales lead over its rival, BMW, to 2,491 cars, according to Bloomberg. If CLA sales continue at this rate, we can only expect that margin to grow.
