1973 Mercedes 450SLC MercedillacSpotted 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?
1937 Horch 930 V CabrioletSpotted in New York is a 1937 Horch 930 V Cabriolet for $189,500 USD. August Horch build highly desirable cars that rivaled Mercedes Benz . Interestingly, the latin translation of Horch is Audi which means “Listen!” In 1932 Horch and Audi merged with Zschopauer Motrenwerke and the Wanderer car production facilities to become Auto Union. These highly collectibles vehicles are extremely rare. I was fortunate enough to see one at Pebble Beach. There was a time where I was given the opportunity to buy a barn find Horch minus the engine. The seller decided not to sell given the extremely interest in his car. This 1937 Horch 930 V Cabriolet is an incredibly rare and elusive discovery and the ideal pre-war restoration candidate. Yellow and black with original upholstery. This extremely original Horch was parked in 1964 and has been sitting in a garage ever since. V8 engine and 4-speed with overdrive. The motor turns freely. The engine bay is completely intact and is only missing its radiator. The car is also very solid with only superficial surface corrosion. A fascinating and exciting pre-war discovery. A once and a lifetime opportunity to own what’s likely one of the last un-restored Horch cabriolets in existence. What do you think of this car?
