1995 Mercedes 500GE Designo

Spotted for sale is a 1995 Mercedes 500GE Designo for $59,999 USD. The seller imported this car from Japan in the fall of 2018. As you may already know, the 500GE is a rather unique Mercedes model in the history of the W463 G Wagons. This is one of the first production V8 Gelandewagens ever produced, with fewer than 500 ever built in 1993/1994. These were never originally for sale in North America. It features a 5.0 M117 V8 (MB realized that the M119 didn’t fit in the W463 engine bay), 4 speed automatic transmission with high / low transfer case and locking center and rear differentials. The exterior is metallic purple with very few blemishes. The wheels are rare late ’90s AMG 18″ wheels with brand new Continental tires. The interior is in great shape (no rips or tears in the leather) and features power front heated seats, cold air-conditioning, and hot heat. All panels are the original Designo two tone black and gray leather.

1973 Mercedes 450SLC Mercedillac Found in Hollywood

1973 Mercedes 450SLC Mercedillac

  Spotted in Hollywood is a 1973 Mercedes 450SLC Mercedillac for $3,000 USD.  I have taken picture of this well known car in the Hollywood Hills before.  Someone went to alot of trouble to make this one off car.  According to the owner , it has been used in music videos, Playboy TV and is affectionately called the “Mercedillac.”  It runs… barely. The engine is essentially solid and a new fuel pump was just installed, but it needs work. As does the suspension and possibly drive shaft. The driver’s side door needs an exterior handle. The interior is, well, idiosyncratic. There is rust in the floorboards.  You can drive it away, but I wouldn’t go far.  So it’s a bit of a project, to be honest.  But the body is clean, and remarkable. Yes, those are the genuine fins of a genuine 1959 Cadillac. And yes, that is a genuine Mercedes Benz 450SL. Have you seen this car in LA?

1990 BMW M3 Found in Boston (SCAM)

  Spotted in Boston, Massachusetts is a 1990 BMW M3 for $1,500 USD.  The seller claims it belonged  to a deceased family member.  It doesnt run and he just wants it gone.  He conveniently has the title in the glove box ready to sign over.  The neighborhood kids like the car. LOL   This is obviously a scam but just wanted to document it for future reference
