Classic Car Overview

We know why youre looking at this roadster. Theres just something cool about these reproduction Mercedes-Benz Gazelle cars when everything is done right. It has iconic lines, a classy cream/brown combo, and manual transmission to take control on the backroads. All of this makes for an attractive and distinct drop-top at an irresistible price. A pre-WWII appearance with much more modern reliability, thats what this one really offers. Youre not out to fool concours judges into thinking this is a real Mercedes. Instead, this is the convertible for those who like getting that appreciative nod in traffic from others that have the same desire for nostalgia that you do. This Gazelle has the great classic touches from the chrome on the Lucas lights to the faux exterior exhaust ports. These bodies always look distinguished in cream with those long rolling fenders in a complementing brown. Because this is designed for genuine European sophistication, there is the period-correct tall Mercedes-style grille in front, bright wire wheel covers at all four corners, and a shining full-size spare mounted on the rear. Open the low-cut sports doors, and youll see a timelessly handsome tan interior. Slip into the bucket seat to be greeted by a wood three-spoke sports steering wheel. Just to your right are a great looking full set of vintage-style gauges set in a complete wood panel. The AM/FM/cassette stereo is quite adaptable, and so it allows you to go for a Sunday drive while listening to the most modern tunes you want. And if the weather turns bad while youre out, the full convertible top and side curtains will comfortably get you home. Under the hood is a 2.3-liter Ford motor. This Pinto powerhouse has earned a hardy reputation, and the parts availability is better and more affordable than any Mercedes youll know. It has a tidy setup that shows this has been under good maintenance, and its strong-running nature proves it. You have the best control over the full power range of this engine thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. You can feel confident about taking this one out for a little fun thanks to nimble steering and modern Firestone rubber at all four corners. This is a clean and complete classic Mercedes replica that was built for open-top motoring. So at a price like this, you know this Gazelle will be leaping out of our showroom shortly. Call today!!!
