I drove my replica 1936 Mercedes Sportsroadster on a maiden voyage for the first time last weekend. It has a 302/AOD and 4-link Ford rearend. Spent about 20 hours a week for the last 14 months installing the powertrain, Rebel wire harness, brakes, power rack and pinion steering, converted from serpentine to vee belts, lokar ebrake, 2-1/2" exhaust, '32 Ford radiator and extended support rods, etc. I've always loved the sleek lines since I was a teenager. Couldn't afford a real one. Has a removable hardtop that needs mounting hardware. Got some good ideas from POPTOPS at the LA Roadster Show. It's registered under SB100 as a 1936 Special Construction.
