1928 Mercedes-Benz SSK Replica

This Automobile is a Gazelle Kit Reproduction of a 1928 Mercedes SSK. The present owner purchased it 8 years ago and it has not been driven but has been stored either indoors or under cover the entire time. The body is in excellent condition, the engine and power train run extremely well and the brake shoes and cylinders including the Master cylinder are all new. Detail work is very good and the interior is immaculate. The SSK was the last car designed by Ferdinand Porsche before he left to found his own company. The SSK was the fastest car made at the time. Only 40 were made and half were sold as race cars. Only 4 or 5 original SSK vehicles exist with the most recent one going for over $7 million. This has led to a large number of replicas constructed to enjoy the style of the SSK. Gazelle is the best of the SSK reproductions. This car gives you the look and style of a multi-million dollar car for a small fraction of the price and likely has seen the bottom of its depreciation value. The odometer shows only 571 Miles since it’s construction because this car has been used as a showpiece rather than driven on a regular basis. These kit cars will provide thousands of miles of open air cruising for many more years to come. Please examine the photographs for condition.

As you will note, the car comes with the convertible top, convertible top boot and a split tonneau cover with a convenient zipper to allow the user to drive the car without removing the entire cover, then snap it back in place and zip it up to protect the cockpit. Not shown but also included are the side-screens for use in inclement weather. There is a cover for the spare tire and wire wheel covers included.

The current owner purchased the car from its previous owner 8 year ago, and very little is known of its history prior to that time other than the fact that it was not driven very much, The kit was assembled on a Volkswagen and the entire construction manual and owners manual with all diagrams and construction notes is included.

The Full Amount must be paid within 10 days of the completion of the auction. Payment must be made in full and certified by my bank prior to shipment or pick up of the vehicle. Sale is FOB Caldwell, Idaho, USA and transportation costs and arrangements are the responsibility of the purchaser. After 30 days storage will be charged at $50.00 per day.
