This 1954 2-door Customline has been tastefully modified into a hot rod by the current owner, and is in excellent restored condition. This example is fitted with a refurbished 312 cubic inch Ford Y-block engine, mated to a 3 speed column shift manual. The engine runs perfectly, and presents nicely under the custom louvered hood.
Additional modifications include a recessed power antenna, electric door and trunk opener, custom twin exhaust and color coded "Rallye" style wheels with chrome centre caps and dress trims. All interior and exterior trim is in great condition, finished beautifully in a red/black theme. All the hard work has been done, and this nice old school hot rod is ready to enjoy. If you ever needed spare parts or wanted to further the modifications, the Customline is one of the most popular collector rods on the market and your options are endless.

It's been a while, but finally we've spotted another LS for sale to add to the register! This one was listed on Ebay Australia in November 2019. Looks to be very original, other than the wheels. Must have lost its 8.4 inch disc brakes at some point as it's sitting on 10 inch wheels.
This early example of the C140 was imported to Poland from Switzerland in 2019. As an early C140, it has the 500SEC badgingf (as compared to the later S500 and CL 500 badging). Looks to be in reasonable condition with reasonable mileage for its age. Service records shown in the image look fairly comprehensive. A nice modern classic benz.
Spotted this one, and many others, on the polish site allegro.pl. The 140 series Mercedes seems to be particularly popular with Polish people, and even where I live in Australia, when I bought my C140 in Sydney - the seller was Polish! Anyway, having a look at this one it has reaosnably average mileage for its age and type, and looks overall in good condition.
The seller at the time noted the following comments about this car, which is a rare 420 model (most are 500/600)..
It's not actually a 65 Daytona, but a partial clone with teh vinyl roof, and a close colour to the Bordeaux Red. Looks to have a 64 Daytona trunk lid, and nicely finisged custim trim, this example was advertised on Ebay USA asking $24,000 USD in Oct 2019. In the original advertisement the seller noted the following:
It was obviously a very popular colour in NZ - of the few GTs we have on the register here, the Brown / Bronze GTs are the most numerous. This one looks to be in great condition, and was asking $10K NZD in Oct 2019 on trademe.co.nz. The owner noted at the time that the carpet is original, and in great condition. Seats look to have an aftermarket re-trim in similar to original colours..
Found on Ebay USA in October 2019 with a classified ad price of $13,500 USD. One of only 6,622 cars built, these are becoming quite collectible and were sold in quite a number of markets - tche main of course being the USA where the styling was clearly aimed. The seller didn't give any details about this particular car but it looks great - hope it found a good home. Check out the other Bertone Volvos on the register below.
Hard to find these early 1275 GTS - this one with its original 10 inch wheels (as appeared on early GTs before they went to the 12 inch). Looks to be relatively original from a distance, but has had some inyteresting vinyl work done to the foor and quite a bit of engine work. Not much needed to bring it back to factory (which is what I'd want to do).
This one was advertised on Ebay UK in Oct 2019 with a classified price of 8,950 GBP. The seller noted the following comments at the time it was advertised:
Not too often you see the CL / S600 come up in this sort of condition, with only 36,550 miles on the clock. Immaculate in and out, we spotted this one on ebay USA in October 2019. A real museum piece and future classic for sure. The last of the Bruno Sacco Benz cars. The seller made the following comments at the time of sale, asking $26,000 USD:
"Mercedes 1996 S600 Mint original, garage kept, 36,000 miles. Concours condition, no dust on car, inside , or engine.1 of a kind condition, everything works. Serviced and kept in great condition"
