For Sale: 1990 Mercedes-Benz 540K in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars Houston is proud to offer for sale this snazzy burgundy and white 7/8ths scale 4-seat version of a 1936 Mercedes-Benz SSK. Built by Classic Roadsters of Fargo, ND, this 7/8ths scale SSK replica can be had for a fraction of what it would cost if you were to buy a real M-B SSK. Starting with a reliable 302 CID Ford V8 and a C4 (3-speed) automatic transmission, and (we're told) a Mustang II front end, you've got the basics for a really fun driver that looks like an SSK, but won't run you the millions of dollars that an actual Mercedes SSK would. This Classic Roadsters "Baron" is one of their less common 4-seat models. Most of Classic Roadsters 7/8th scale SSK replicas were 2-seaters, called the "Marlene", whereas the 4-seat versions were dubbed "Baron". This Baron has Air Conditioning installed, two side mount spare tires, six chrome "wire basket" wheels, and a rear luggage rack that holds a vintage footlocker effortlessly. Inside, you'll see the wood dash with its complement of VDO gauges, real leather seating, and a thick-rimmed wood Grant steering wheel. Front passengers get seat belts, which they'll want to be wearing when you put the hammer down in this car. With a V8 under the hood, this fiberglass bodied car is lightweight enough that its power to weight ratio makes it feel quite zippy. However, with the 8.00-14 vintage wide white wall bias ply tires, you'll prefer the stately ride that the car provides. If you want the vintage look without the price tag of an original, this Baron is ready for you to snap it up! Additional features and options on this 1936 Mercedes-Benz SSK replica (Classic Roadsters "Baron") for sale include glass side windows, fold down rear luggage rack, tinted glass, air conditioning (blows cool), leather interior, front seat belts, manual convertible top, and wide white sidewall tires.
