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.

Mercedes-Benz is preparing a major product offensive to counteract lagging sales in the Chinese market, aiming 20 new or updated models at the People's Republic in the next two years, according to a report by Reuters. The plan is part of MB's so-called 2020 Initiative, which will see the Stuttgart-based manufacturer dump 2 billion Euros ($2.67 billion) into its Chinese market vehicles in a bid to boost sales to 300,000 units by 2015.
Were it to succeed, China would become the largest market for the Silver Arrow, outpacing Germany and the United States. Leading the charge will be the redesigned E-Class, which is set to launch in China this week. That will quickly be followed by the S-Class, and eventually by the GLA-Class in 2014.
Mercedes has struggled in China, especially relative to its German competition, BMW and Audi. Where Mercedes saw a mere four-percent increase in 2012 sales to 206,150 units, Audi was up a staggering 32 percent, while BMW's numbers jumped 41 percent. While some voices, according to Reuters, accuse Munich and Ingolstadt of boosting their numbers through hefty incentives, the fact remains that Mercedes was just walloped by its competitors last year.
It would seem the act of dying hard brings with it lots of wanton destruction of the four-wheeled kind. According to John Moore, director of A Good Day To Die Hard, starring Bruce Willis, There were 132 (cars) that could never be used again. Another 518 required a lot of work. And damn right there were some good cars there... That's the fun of it."
Please join us in one great big collective sigh. Done? Okay, let's continue.
"With Die Hard it's about how audacious the action is," says Moore. "So you have to drive over a Lamborghini. An actual one. And yes it hurts me. I'm a car fanatic." Yeah. Sounds like it hurt really bad... though not as bad as the final tally after all the carnage had been counted: "Someone showed me the numbers on the car chase and soup to nuts, you put it all together it was like an $11 million sequence."
Gullwing America specializes in what it calls "retro styling meets modern technology." It's next demonstration of that is the convertible above, a stylized recreation of the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SC (inset) supported by the structure of a 2012 SLS AMG Roadster. Commissioned by a client in Eastern Europe, the resulting car is called the 300 SLC.
The hand-formed aluminum bodywork required just a few changes to the SLS AMG Roadster, namely reworking the headlights into a stacked arrangement of LEDs and relocating the pop-up spoiler behind the cabin. The retro grille and long, straight hood evoke the past, the custom exhaust, height-adjustable suspension, 21-inch wheels up front and 22-inch wheels in back, however, stray a little further from history. The 300 SLC will come with a hardtop and be one-of-a-kind, making it even rarer than its inspiration, of which 92 were made.
