1936 Replica/Kit Makes Mercedes 540K Special Roadster Additional Info:

Rare T. Price Mercedes 540K Special Roadster. The most authentic of the all the replicas, excepting the $500k all metal customs. Only a handful were produced by Classic Factory in Pomona, Ca. In the mid 1980's. Price was an astounding $85,000 then! These were hand built, factory produced vehicles, not kit cars. 17 feet of art Deco beauty. All bulletproof Ford underneath: vintage 302, C4 transmission, 9" rear end. Massive cross braced frame, coil springs and new shock absorbers at all four corners. Beautiful lacquer paint, not gel coat. Chrome is in very good, but not perfect condition. Only issue is the front bumpers, which would profit from a rechrome due to a couple minor defects. Correctly laced chrome wire wheels with new tires. (I prefer the period correct blackwalls for a more authentic and sporty appearance; some prefer the wide white gangsters). There is a high quality German canvas top which I never use. Also Vintage Air, which is never used either. This is a car to be open air enjoyed! Full set of Vintage white faced gauges in a burlwood dash. Most of these Price replicas looked beautiful, but drove poorly due to incorrect front end geometry. Ihave spent much time and money to make this masterpiece drive straight and solid on the road. As a bonus the clear Florida title is listed as "1936 Mercedes", exempting the vehicle from smog and safety requirements almost everywhere. I can help with shipping recommendations, and will personally see the car safely onto the transport vehicle. Call me with any questions and requests for more detailed photos. Charles (386) 847 5619
