    afaik Daimler-Benz scrapped the transporter, late fifties/early sixties i suppose, only to feel the need to recreate it within the last decade. i don't think it was sold.

    Correct-a-mundo. The Mercedes Renntransporter was built in 1954 for fast transport of cars to and from tracks. Mercedes pulled out of racing in '55 after the LeMans tragedy. The transporter was used by the factory for a few years but was finally scrapped in 1967. Mercedes realized their mistake and built a replica in 1993.

    The car that sold this year for $29 mil was a W196 Grand Prix car. One of the few Mercedes Grand Prix cars that the factory let go into private hands.

    1957 Plymouth Fury mini car?
    It is not a Powercar Fury JR because they did not make them until 1958 and they looked different. Must be custom made?

    I remember going to Kennedy Park in Hayward with my father to watch these races. I was soooo bummed when they shut down the track.

    Look at all the wrinkles in the seats on pics #3 to 5,people would be screaming if I produced seats like that and they have a tendency to think they are perfect from the factory.

    Looks like it is made from an auxiliary tank for a Grumman Bearcat.;)
