Here we go. Despite being a Classic Ford I bought a real looney tune Merc, but now I want a Cortina again.
I currently have the Merc up for sale for £8000 which is realistic. I will sell, swop or px for a Cortina.
Where do I start about the Merc ?!?!?!?!
A 1965 Merc 4 door modified saloon. 54 year old bodyshell, NOT brand new, a few dents but rust free.
OUT with the 1900cc engine, box, wheels, seats, door cards, centre console, electrics, suspension, brakes, diff, carb, etc, etc, etc. Basically EVERYTHING apart from the bodyshell.
IN goes a 5.5 V8 AMG automatic, elec windows, central locking, plus all AMG parts including ---- alloys, dash, console, door cards, electric windows, central locking, brakes, suspension, leather seats, carpets, injection, tinted glass, etc, etc, etc.
Non Merc parts ---New rechromed bumpers, New period spotlights, New and discrete full roll cage.
The 1965 shell is solid and rust free. Just spent well a lot of money last week on a new battery, radiator, service, waterless coolant, some fly by wire gadget on the throttle linkage and some other odd jobs at Klasse Automotive, East Calder, the best independent Merc/BMW specialist in Scotland.
I only bought this Merc to help someone out financially and because I'm a nut job and delinquent old age pensioner.
A retired car dealer from West Linton, Scotland bought this Mercedes Monster in April this year for £10,000. A week later, after a boating accident in Loch Lomond his empty boat was washed up ashore at Cameron House Hotel. His body was found floating on the loch the next day. Sad but true. I couldn't make this story up!
Want to swop, sell or px this £8000 car for a Cortina, Str8 swop, Sell £8000 or px with cash either way.
Think of this car as -
A Mafia Staff car
A KGB car
A Gestapo car
Von Ryans Express
Crowd puller, nice fun or daily driver and totally extrovert car. E55 V8 AMG = quite fast to say the very least.
I am useless at loading pics but the car can be seen in the classic car section of www.freeads.co.uk
Maybe some nice Cortina person on this site will put a link on here for me.
