1973 350sl with 6.9 engine reported to be a 11 second car/17 inch AMG three piece monoblocks with roll bar,fairly clean and unassuming except for the huge 17x10 AMG wheel out back,,probably a #4 car(1 being best)?
Second is even more sedate
1972 250c Sunroof-all original down to the proper radio under the hood however lies a BMW 745i turbo engine tuned with a manual 5 speed dyno slips showing 366rwhp,even sports the factory 14inch wheels and hubcaps
Red Mb tex,no ac/no power windows true #2 or low 3 car?
either can be had for less than 5k...not looking for any more cars but they both seem to good to pass up..Will pass on contact info if I don't buy either...
They should be had for less than $3k. The first one is a Frankenstein, and that creates a few problems:
1) As a seller, you can't sell a Frankenstein.
2) As a seller, you'll try to recoup your costs (enormous in this case) with an overpriced car, and the problem is #1 above. High priced Frankensteins don't sell.
3) If you get it, you didn't build it. So you don't know the nuances of that car or what little tweaks were done to get it to run well. You'll have more headaches than you'll know what to do with, and then you'll be stuck with Frankenstein because of #1 above.
The second one is also a Frankenstein so all the above apply again.
Why would you want one of these things? My recommendation is that if you got to have a Frankenstein, then you have to build it yourself - that way you'll know the car and it's little nuances. Not only are neither of those cars "too good to pass up", but they shouldn't be on anyone's radar for any reason. They're Frankensteins - run from them. You're asking for sooooo much trouble.
