1985 Ferrari Testarossa Rims and Clutch

Spotted:  Here are 1985 Ferrari Testarossa Rims and Clutch for sale for in Los Angeles, California.    The seller has sold his car and has additional parts to get rid of.  He will not specify a price for his wheel set.   These are single bolt  knock off wheels with a 16.33 inch or 415 mm diameter so they will only fit a 1984, 1985, or 1986 Testarossas.   For the USA , these first year cars with single bolt knock off wheels came in for 1985 and 1986 only.  These cars were also known as  “Flying Mirror” cars due to their high mounted left side mirror for the 1985 and 1986 years.   The seller wants people to make offers and does not state a price.  It seems he wants something north of $5,000 for the set.  Also it should be noted that these wheels use metric sized tires which are almost impossible to find especially for the rear.  

Would you pay $5,000 for a set of single bolt knock off  wheels for the the 1985/1986 Testarossa?  Post your comments!

2013 Mercedes Benz G55 Convertible

Here is a 2013 Mercedes Benz G55 Convertible for sale in Greenwich, Conneticut for $147,500 USD.   This is a one off conversion by Black Horse Garage and looks to be well executed.   It even has a third brake light embedded into the spare tire cover.   I am curious how the top works.  Is it motorized ?  is it just fastened with rivets?  I wonder if it keeps out the rain?   This would be a great california summer car to say the least.  Pretty cool!

Location: Florida

This 1994 Mercedes E500 can be found for sale in Florida.   I am posting this one because of its low mileage and that its a 1994 model with the body facelift.    It only has 59,000 miles which is amazing for one of these cars.  I dont think anyone thought to buy and store it away for future appreciation.  They were driven hard and put away wet.

1994 Mercedes E500 Found in Philadelphia
Location: Philadelphia
Odometer: 226,000 Miles

This E500 is located in Philadelphia and the owner sounds like a true enthusiast.    He says he has service records going back 20 + years with over 100 pages of detailed maintenance records.   It has had 3 owners since new and no history of accidents or rust.  The mileage is high at 226,000 miles which could scare off a lot of people but it sounds like its always been properly maintained.  I am interested to know if a engine rebuilt has been done and if so by whom?   It is worth doing an inspection but the car looks better than most I have seen.

There were 1528 examples built between 1992 to 1994.   In 1994 , there was believed to be 350-400 units produced with probably half that are

The seller will include its original window sticker, sales contract , all books and manuals.   It has had 3 owners from new and was originally sold in California.   There are no accidents or damage of any kind.   If you like these cars, it will be hard to find a better example.  All the ones I see need alot of work and have very high miles.  What an incredible find.

1988 Mercedes-Benz 300 E Sedan AMG: 6.0 Hammer

For Reference
1988 Mercedes-Benz 300 E Sedan AMG
Location: Italy
Sold for 84,000 Euros at  Sotheby’s Auction / Duemila Ruote / November 25th, 2016


Base Price when new:  $121,472 USD to $161,422 USD
Model: 300E AMG 6.0 ‘Hammer’
Engine: 6.0 liter V8 / 375 horsepower
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: Unknown

This is a early W124 body AMG 6.0 Hammer from 1988.    The expected price range at Auction was from  2,500 – 5000 Euros but sold for an astounding 84,000 Euros.   At the time, it was considered the fastest passenger sedan in the world. It was faster than the Lamborghini Countach from 60-120mph.

Whats interesting about this car to me is that its a manual transmission.  I have never seen an AMG car fitted this way.  The AMG steering wheel and the Recaro Seats are in good condition.  In typical AMG fashion, it has  black AMG monoblock wheels that match the body.

1991 Mercedes Benz AMG Hammer E60 W124 body

1991 Mercedes Benz AMG Hammer E60 W124 body
Price $75,000

Mileage: 12,428 miles
Chassis: WDB1240361B565465

This is believed to be a true factory E60.  I see no reason to doubt it. Only 126 of these rare cares were produced by Mercedes. AMG re-engineered the reliable M119 5.0 litre V8, increasing capacity to 6.0 litres and boosting power by almost 100hp.

What do you think of price?
