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.
