Wagon Wednesday: 1998 Mauck MSV Limo 1120s

Mauck MSV Limo

Few weeks back a friend of mine sent me picture of a vehicle just like the one pictured above. He had no idea what it was, and neither did I. I tweeted and Facebook’d asking what the heck it was, but the responses were guesses at best.

Thankfully, there is Hooniverse and its awesome weekend editor to answer all questions on the weird, the rare, and the obscure vehicles. The Mauck is, essentially, a business Lear jet for the road. With the original price of around $200,000, it is absolutely shocking that only a few were sold. 

Now here is your chance to own a [sc:ebay itemid=”200942834222″ linktext=”Mauck of your own for less than $70,000 from eBay Motors”]. Could it be just be weird, obscure, and 1990’s futuristic looking enough to fetch that money?

Sounds like the seller knows as much as I do about this thing.

The exterior looks good in pictures. Are those Grand Cherokee taillights? Is that a Saturn steering wheel?

Inside it looks like a weird incomplete conversion with minivan bench seats. Still, I like this thing and after some improvements I totally would drive it cross-country with my family, especially if it had a Cummins turbo-diesel and not the 454 big block. I like the one Jim wrote about a lot better, which shows that the damn thing has potential.

    1. And the bench seats are the second rows from third gen Chrysler minivan!

      1. Wtf these people were thinking when replacing original, -probably green leather- sofas (like in Jim's post linked above) with those Chryco seats in $70k bus…..

    1. There was one kicking around San Diego about a decade ago. It was a party bus, which is the opposite of an executive limo in my opinion. I was pleasantly surprised by the somewhat utilitarian interior of this one, as the slimy porno-palace look of the other Mauck featured by Hooniverse makes me want to remain standing and not touch anything until I can leave the vehicle. Gross.

  1. Where do you sleep? I'd need to do some slight modifications to this beast. Pretty cool though.

  2. Also known as a camper.
    Otherwise, it's righteously weird–right-down to the green cockpit.

      1. Eldorado Starfire. Only a handful made, which wa OBVIOUSLY too many, but there are like a few still around.
        I've seen one of these, and that was more than enough. Saw it before I knew it existed, otherwise…this is pre-Internetz, summer of 1986.
        Ironically, in the same part of town I saw around the same time-frame, a Renault R5, a Renaul Alpine, and an Aston Martin Lagonda.
        It was near Ross Perot's 'hood Dallas, Midway & Forest lane, for the locals), which ain't hurtin' for money…or poor taste in pretty much everything.
        I lived kick-ass 'hood adjacent, but drove a '67 Dodge A-108 passenger van.

  3. 1. It's a van. Or are you blind?
    2. It's crazy money.
    3. It's got one of the cheesiest interiors I've ever seen.
    Good concept; horrible execution.
