Up for sale is a ’71 Jaguar E-type coupe and a plethora of spare parts. The E-type is complete with very little rust. The engine turns and it rolls but has not been run in a while. Several interior parts, knock-offs and body panels are available along with a pair of Coupe bodies. See the pictures in the post and feel free to inquire about individual or package prices.

Up for sale is a very original, good running ’85 Vanagon GL. Recent mechanical work includes a tune-up with new distributor cap and rotor, new plugs and air filter, oil and filter change, new battery, new thermostat and water pump, cooling system flush and a new clutch slave cylinder. Inside the original rear carpet was replaced and the middle seat removed for more storage. The middle seat will come with the sale. The bus runs well and starts every time. It still wears its original Dove Blue Metallic paint color although its showing its age. There is no rust underneath and the typical rear passenger side corner dent is small. The only rust on the bus is on the driver’s side nose above the headlight grill (see pictures). The rest of the seams are in great shape.
Clear Title. Feel free to email with questions or to set up a time to see it. The bus is in Athens, GA. $3,800 obo.

This 1979 Mercedes Benz 450SLC 5.0 is a rare beast on these shores. It was built to homologate the SLC for the FIA World Rally Championship and featured an all aluminum 5.0liter V8 along with an aluminum hood and trunk. Production of these special edition cars ran from 1977 through to 1981 with roughly 2700 being produced. This particular model is shown to be the 1477th of the run. The owner claims that it was originally painted Champagne Metallic but it now wears an Astral Silver paint job which is correct to the period. The original “gas-burner” wheels come with it as do a set of Ronals which look particularly good on the C107 chassis. There aren’t any pictures of the front provided but we hope that it retained the larger Euro-spec headlights which also complement this body well. The seller claims that it needs some TLC but that you can drive it home.
Find it above on Craigslist in Newnan, Georgia with a modest asking price of $4999.
Found here on Craigslist in Landrum, SC is a very clean example of a ’67 Split Window Camper. The current owner claims that only 5k miles have been logged since a restoration 10 years ago. The paint and interior look nice and everything is said to be in working, running order. 1967 was the last year of the split window buses and they benefitted from 12-volt power from the factory. The asking price of $20k seems pretty true to market for one of these. You won’t get anywhere quickly in a ’67 camper but who cares! You’re in a Samba pop-top so slide the windows open and enjoy the ride!

Up for sale is an extremely original and unmolested 1977 Mercedes-Benz 300D. This w123 chassis was completed in February of ’77 and picked up in Stuttgart by a couple from Atlanta, GA that took European delivery. The first service was performed in Luzern, Switzerland on March 11th and it was returned to the United States on March 16th of ’77. Since then the 300D has covered less than 143,000 miles (roughly 3,800 miles per year). The Mercedes has always lived in the Atlanta area and is free of any rust or corrosion.
