SOLD Baby Blue Blitzen Benz: ’67 M-B 230S 4-speed

I love M-B Fintails that is why we have one here at Mint2Me. Why, you might ask, do they refer to this model as Heckflosse or Fintail? Let’s ask Wiki: Mercedes Benz Fintail (GermanHeckflosse) is a nickname given to several Mercedes vehicles produced from 1959 to 1972, which included tail fins for aerodynamic stability. Though never officially designated as such (they were designated Peilstege, marking the end of the car in rear view mirror).

SOLD Teutonic Terror: 1972 BMW 2002tii

German / Preferred / 32 Comments

David E. Davis’s seminal BMW 2002 review brought the brand to the attention of American enthusiasts. In it he states unequivocally that the BMW 2002 is “most certainly the best $2850 sedan in the whole cotton-picking world.” The German newspaper Auto Bild called it “the whispering bomb”.

Okay, I like the color although the interior may be a little too much blue for my taste. But I wouldn’t turn down this one for monochromatic-ness if that is a word.

And this is a fully documented California car with a good amount of paperwork to support continued attention to maintenance and subtle upgrades. The seller states it is a 5-speed and although nice to have on highway cruises, it didn’t come that way. But that, like the blue interior wouldn’t turn me away. Read More
