1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SLR Roadster Replica, built by thorougbred motor cars out of florida

1 of 12 produced that made it out of the factory prior to closin, they were very well known and sought after car, they were $72000 back in the 80's (twice the price of a new ferrari)

this example was brought to canada were it spent its life with one owner, I PURCHASED FROM THE ORIGINAL OWNER it was kept pretty much in storage the whole time and brought out for the odd sunday drive it has approx 1000 miles on i, all original paint drivetrai, chassis etc true knock off wheels

i did replace the seats as the originals were not in good shape from ag, they are brand new and look perfectly at place in the car ( plus much more comfortable )

There is currently oner other example being sold at an asjking price of 89,900 us, I have priced this car well but am a motivated selle, so serious offers will be considered

this car is a pleasure to driv, fast and handles like it is on rails

AND AMAZINGLY ENOUGH THIS CAR IS ACTUALLYTITLED AS A 1955 MERCEDES BENZ 300 SLR !

As one would rightly expect, even if one of these original cars were available, the number able to pursue it would be few. Built by Thoroughbred Coach Builders in Florida, this Mercedes Benz 300SLR replica is an extremely handsome representation of this renowned machine. It is reported that approximately 12 of these cars were built before Mercedes-Benz requested they conclude offering this model.
The Thoroughbred 300SLR has a custom-made square tube chassis with a fiberglass body that features the distinct individual headrests on the rear deck. The power is derived from a Ford 302-cid V-8 engine that is paired with a C4 automatic transmission and Ford nine-inch rear end. Other features include rear coil-over suspension, functioning headlights and indicators, power disc brakes, tachometer, classic industries gauges hood “speed clipsknock off wire wheels, Goodyear radial tires and Mercedes-Benz badging and emblems.
