Are you looking for a LeMons ride but are sick and tired of all the fox-body stangs and e30 bimmers? Do you need a gunsight to line up the apex of a corner? How about a support vehicle to go along with your racer? Well, if you’re anywhere near Milwaukee Wisconsin, then we should talk. 24 Hours of LeMons forum member TWHansen has a deal you’re not going to want to pass up. He has a 1972 Mercedes Benz 280SE with the 4.5-litre V8 that you could drive away for only $500. Not only that, but he also has a Toyota Space Wart mini van that would either make an excellent LeMons support vehicle, or track star in its own right. And he’s only asking $500 for that as well.
While you may consider the W108 Benz to be too heavy to be competitive, you can take heart that this one has already had its fair share of lightening done to it.
The automatic gearbox will let you concentrate on dicing it up with the traffic. And that JVC cassette deck is looking pretty tasty.
Fuel injection, single overhead cams and 230-hp await under the hood of this burgundy beauty.
The Toyota van is appropriately hued for LeMons, and while it would swallow all your support gear for the race, its mid-engine layout and near neutral weight bias (/sarcasm) would make a day on the track an interesting and entertaining experience.
So somebody ought to jump on this deal before it’s too late – $1,000 for two potential LeMons racers – that’s a bargain that doesn’t drop in your lap everyday. Hit up Tim at 262-325-0346, or jump on the forum and cut him a deal.
You can check out some more details on both of the cars here and more pictures of the Benz may be found here.
