Availability: In stock

Issued 1963


The car was equipped with a huge six cylinder single overhead camshaft engine with twin ignition. This consisted of battery ignition or magneto ignition. You could run it on either or both. There were twelve spark plugs, six on each side. It had twin carburettors and a kompressor. The kompressors on these cars were not like ordinary superchargers as they were used more like a passing gear. If you came up on someone and wanted to get by in a hurry you mashed the accelerator to the floor, the kompressor kicked in, frightened the h--- out of the guy in front of you and you screamed by. Once by, you let off and things were back to normal, if driving a Mercedes-Benz S could ever be considered normal.

This model is a C9 near mint version with silver radiator and red seats.  The box has a scar on one side making it Very Good C8.
