Gateway Classic Cars of Detroit is proud to present this 1972
Mercedes-Benz Gazelle replica. The Mercedes-Benz SSK (W06) is a
roadster built by German Mercedes-Benz between 1928 and 1932. The
name is an abbreviation of Super Sport Kurz, German for "Super
Sport Short", as it was a short wheelbase development of the
Mercedes-Benz Model S. The SSK's extreme performance and numerous
competitive successes made it one of the most highly regarded
sports cars of its era. Fewer than 40 SSKs were built during its
production span, of which about half were sold as Rennwagen,
(racing cars). What does one do when they want to enjoy an
extremely scarce sports car without the fear of selling one's soul
to the devil and emptying one's retirement fund too? Simple, find a
replica! You can enjoy driving it without fear of ruining a piece
of history all the while keeping gobs of greenbacks in your wallet.
It offers neo-classic styling that most folks will at least admire
as it drives by, even if they don't know quite what it is. Finished
in a cream and green exterior, and a cream/gray interior, this has
a timeless look. The body of this Gazelle sits on a Ford Pinto
body. Equipped with a 2.0 4 cylinder engine backed with a 4 speed
manual transmission and 3,540 miles on the dash. If you are looking
to hit a car show/event in a fun, topless little car you don't see
often, do it in class with this Mercedes-Benz on a pinto body,
you'll be sure to be the only one with one of these!
