For Sale: 1972 Mercedes-Benz Gazelle in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

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!
