real live genius in my town(!!!)

Discussion in '1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Coupe' started by MarkM91286, Aug 10, 2002.

  1. This really "smart" kids dad bought one of these to give to his son. Now his son wants to drop the original motor and tranny out and swap it in with an American V-8 and transmission. Now tell me that is not genius? (Large Helping of Sarcasm) <!-- Signature -->

    If this is so then i doubt it is real. This car is worth more than a house. Very collectable and one of the most legendary cars of the world. It was the McLaren F1 of its time. So first off you are either lying or you are thinking of another SL model. Did he have the GullWings like This one? No man buys a million dallar classic like this for his kid to tamper with. <!-- Signature -->

    well, the car doesn't actually cost 1 million $, i think it's closer to 500,000. <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
    What would be awesome though, is restyle the entire inside with now-a-days mercedes inside quality and technology. With a V-12 AMG (the one from the Pagani) or the V8 from the SL AMG <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    actually, this car would go for more like $200,000 in anything but excellent condition. An example in mint condition might fetch a healthy 300,000, but not near 500,000

    The original engine is a very good engine already.
