The best thing about this car is its not a pickup truck! It hugs the road and its fun to drive.
This is a rare sports car. A vintage Mercedes Benz, you got swagger. Because you are different, because you are free, because you are everything that they down and wishthat they could be.Shaken no stirred. Yeah, I know, he drove an Aston Martin (a Volvo before that). American Bond along the Pacific Ocean, the Highway 1.Has a two seater that dont need to be smogged by this nanny state! Exempt. Pre 1975.
I drove this thing 120mph the other day with the top down. 60 around tight curves.
Survivor with dents, dings, scratches but 45 years young. Drive it home and have a blast. If you get another dent, badge of honor.
Selling to donate money to youth sports. Every zinc cent.

The car will be sold with from the State of California Transfer Official Paperwork and a Bill of Sale and related paperwork from the CaliforniaDealership that I purchased it from. Smog exempt in California. The car drives easily and we can assist you to load upon a trailer. You can drive it homebut I recommend trailering.
As you can see the vehicle needs a good cleaning both inside and out and this would help to bring this car back to its original glory. Some dents and dings. I may have missed something but I did my best to explain this vehicle.Please see the numerous photos and feel free to ask questions. Many accessories to beautify can be obtained online and there are a plethora of auto and part organizations dedicated to the restoration of these well beloved vehicles that are really beginning to increase in their value.

You may be curious about all of this. It takes several hours to learn of vehicles that will come up for estate auction or surplus.

It is time consuming to respond to questions, show the vehicle, and meet with people. Every vehicle listed is the fruition of likely two days of work. We cannot tolerate nonpaying winners. Please see our other auctions and thank you for looking!

Overseas bidders, please contact me before bidding. We had a deadbeat winner from Austria to go with a deadbeat from Germany on another vehicle earlier this year. I dont want to ban Countries but in order to bid, I need to make certain we can communicate prior to bidding and that means I will have your phone number and can call you. Please contact me first so that we are on the same page.
