1936 500K Marlene Mercedes Kit Car
1936 500 Marlene K Mercedes Kit Convertible
Nice 500 Marlene K Mercedes Kit Car (Original was made for Marlene Dietrich in 1936). It was assembled in 1990 and only has 750 original miles. The fiberglass kit is built on a Mustang II frame/power-train that can be serviced by any Ford dealer. It has a Ford 302 HP V-8, and automatic transmission.
It has always been garage parked, and has never been in an accident. There is another set of fenders that are coffee brown that have the wheel wells, and other spare part accessories. The interior is white seats and beige door panels with coffee brown carpeting. This car is a “head-turner” at car-shows, or on the street.
The 500 K has been serviced regularly by a master mechanic and starts up like a new car and is a pleasure to drive. All paperwork from its order form to maintenance records is available.
Call me to learn more about this special automobile (VIN: 4CRDBEXLF000512). I am not a dealer, and this is one of my private automobiles. My husband died and the car has been setting in the garage.
