RE: 300SL Gullwing for $6,800?

About one year ago an ad appeared in the Atlanta Journal, the Memphis Appeal, and the Nashville Tennessean to name a few papers, for a "mint" 300 SL Gullwing for $30,000. It turned out to be a scam of course. This scam was run all over the southeast with a "Deposit to hold the car." Anyone who believes that there is one just waiting to be discovered in a barn somewhere will be sadly mistaken. The Gullwing Group has a registry of Gullwings and roadsters in the WORLD! It would not be easy to pass one off as "Found."

Well, there probably are a few out there unaccounted for, but, nevertheless, I doubt we'll be seeing any for much less than $80K or so for a unit needing a total restoration.

RE: 300SL Gullwing for $6,800?

ebay is having lately more scams, than good deals.
Couple of weeks ago, just for the sake of it, I was checking prices on Honda Goldwing tricycle.
Someone was selling 1-year on, with only couple thousand on it, with custom graphics for around $5000 BUY IT NOW.
I Noticed the price kind of affordable, saved the item and went to other task. Couple of hours later my saved item vanished. I did the search again and find looking identical one for $4900 buy it now. In the mean time I was able to check, that those bikes goes for 27 grands and the 5000 option sounded just too good.
To make long story short, the same day I noticed at least 8 "excellent" deals on Goldwings and all of them have been removed in the matter of couple of hours.

RE: 300SL Gullwing for $6,800?

in the town of Ansbach, Bavaria, where my father has his car lot, is a small replica company, that makes DREAM CARS..............

example, 300 SL Gullwing, costs 70k euros, BRAND NEW, is METAL, using one of the last existing sets of original forms (so i'm told, when i was there).....

here comes the good part, all MODERN PARTS are used........the vehicle can come with klima (AC), ABS, ventilated 4 wheel discs, cd changer, etc, with modern 320 Kompressor motor and transmission............this makes her quite fast.......

the doors are heavy as hell, and are the real deal, opening how they should, on Hydraulics, (and i'v heard that they could be made optionally to work with a button push, to put them up)

they make like 4 cars a year........other cars "done" by them include Porsche's (50's), Benz's (20's, 30's), BMW's (M1, etc)..........
