Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE 1959 Mercedes 220-S Colorado car. Purchased from the 2nd owner It could be restored or parted out. Tons of parts. Would be an awesome vehicle if fixed up. Car starts and has decent brakes but would need to be transported or towed for safety since it hasnít been a daily driver since 2007 Here are the facts on this rare beauty- though I have owned it only a month. Clear transferable title. Door coverings, ceiling fabric, rubber seals and gaskets and upholstery are sun damaged or old. Most glass is good except the windshield has a ping in the center of it. Engine: compression test shows over 100 lbs in most cylinders. Car has plenty of power for a 2200 cc. engine. I shut it down soon after testing the drive train. The engine sounded great. Ignition: Last tune up was in 2003 according to receipts, but it starts after a few attempts. Fuel: there is an electric fuel pump. The twin carburetors were rebuilt in 2000, need service, and contribute to engine stalling out. Drive train: I drove the car from one shop to another ok, Shifts ok. Body: see photos. There is a small hole in the rear door well, a hole in the drivers side floor, small rusted area in each front wheel well. These are sheet metal areas and not structural. The underside of the car was undercoated at some time with a rubberized spray and that saved the car from deep deterioration. Spare tire well rusted in small sections. Structurally the car is solid, Needs new paint. The frame, rails, doors, truck lid and hood etc.etc. are all solid! Has 2 good tires and 2 poor tires. Spare parts: misc spare parts ie. rear bumper over riders, reverse lights, interior door parts, trunk matting, replacement door latches and vent window latch along with misc. parts.

Judges for the World Car of the Year Award have narrowed down the finalists to just four vehicles. Out of a total of 42 entries, only the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, Porsche Boxster/Cayman, Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ/Toyota GT-86 and Volkswagen Golf remain standing. For Volkswagen, this marks the second consecutive year the company has had an entry among the finalists, and the fourth time since 2009. In order to qualify, a vehicle must be on sale on two continents during the span of time between January 1, 2013 and May 30, 2013. A panel of 66 journalists from 23 countries then vote on the finalists.
Three vehicles have made the cut for the last round of voting on the 2013 World Performance Car as well, with the Cayman/Boxster and FR-S/BRZ/GT-86 running against the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. Meanwhile, the Renault Zoe, Tesla Model S and Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid are duking it out for the World Green Car Award. Finally, the World Car Design of the Year Award is up for grabs between the Aston Martin Vanquish, Jaguar F-Type, and the Mazda6. Check out the full press release below. Overall winners will be presented at the 2013 New York Auto Show.
To the concern of nobody in particular, Mercedes-Benz will not be re-upping its Maybach line of ultra-luxury limousines. No, instead the German automaker will be stretching its already roomy S-Class, to make this upcoming 600 Pullman version of the decked-out beast.
The car in our new gallery of spy shots is sporting beefy B-pillars and a massive set of rear doors that should allow perfectly graceful ingress and egress from what is likely to be a palatial rear space. (In one photo we can even see a long-wheelbase S-Class in line with the new Pullman, handily exhibiting the size of the new variant.) The exterior modifications are otherwise obscured, though we can guess at revised front and rear fascia and lighting elements, based on both end being heavily taped for these test runs.
It's a good bet that the Pullman will make use of M-B's twin-turbocharged V12 engine, though sources indicate that a hybrid version might eventually be in the offing, as well.
Chris Harris took to a snowy stretch of tarmac to get a fingertips-on-the-wheel feel of the Volvo S60 Polestar concept. Harris says the turbocharged sedan with 508 horsepower and 424 pound-feet of torque - and a manual transmission - is "a study to see if Volvo can get back into the fast-car market." The Polestar S60 concept, one of which was already purchased for $300,000 by a private buyer, is still making the publicity rounds because even Volvo's Chinese owners realize that, as Harris says, "Volvo sold more cars because it made fast cars" like the old 850 T5 Wagon that stormed the British Touring Car Championship in the 1990s.
For reference, Harris compares the blue wonder to the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG and its 487 hp and 442 lb-ft. The question is, were Volvo to get the price of a production version of the S60 Polestar to climb way down from its 200,000-pound sticker, could it be worthy competition to the established giants?
You can watch Harris divine the answer via a lot of drifting through the snow and a drag race in the video below.
