Hello Everybody,

My brother John and I recently purchased a Mercedes 300SL Gullwing replica business from Hermann Quint. As you may know, Hermann built a first-generation replica from an original Mercedes 300SL and built 30 cars in the late 70's / early 80's. We plan to create these cars with the same enthusiasm and commitment to quality that were Hermann's trademarks. He will also be helping us build the first cars.

We are in the process of "ramping up", but we put together a quick website to get started: www.m-wingmotors.com. Please send any questions to info@m-wingmotors.com. We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Matt Mazza

There are several but all are very expensive! There are also a couple of 190 parts places , but only a few of the parts will work. Ebay also but none are cheap! Write if you find affordable parts!

Hey everybody,

Sorry for the reply to the older thread, but I can't seem to find a current thread on this topic. Any who, I have been searching for a 300sl gullwing Mercedes kit... I know of a pretty nice one from Lonestar Classics here in the Dallas area (where I live), but it is a roadster. I saw the thread from the m-wingmotors.com guys, but it seems a little strange that they don't have a phone number on their page.

So I guess I have two questions, are they legit, and has anyone purchased from them

Thanks!!
Clint

I believe that the Mazza Brothers are only selling complete cars. The only kit for the Gullwing is still just Throughbred Coach Builders. There are three of us with them now that are building the kit. Myself, Gullwing, and James. Gullwing would be good to contact for info, James is just getting his kit.

Hello Everybody,

This is Matt Mazza from M-Wing Motors. Just wanted to let you know that we are indeed legit. We are currently in the process of refining the body and tube chassis and will have a body on chassis in a few months. We have made several changes in our build strategy in the past few months, including:

- Changing from Corvette-based (shortened C3) chassis to tube chassis (original 300SL specs with modifications: new drivetrain and additional upper structure to support pillars & door hinge assemblies, etc.)
- Change from Corvette C3 to C5 suspension,
- Change from small block Chevy to LS1 motor & modern transmission

Our website is therefore slightly out-of-date but we will be updating it soon. FYI, our production facility is outside of Philadelphia in Kutztown, Pennsylvania. Also, we are currently focusing on turkey cars but expect to offer kits in the future (difficult to predict exact timeframe at this time.)

Thanks for your interest and feel free to E-mail directly with any specific questions.

Sincerely,
Matt Mazza

Thanks Matt...I'll keep an eye open...for the next one.

Hey Jaysherman, thanks for the info, I am just a little nervous about the negative comments in the forums that I have read about TB.

Do you or Gullwing have any picts of your kits/work so far? and James, I'd be really interested in hearing about your experience with a long distance purchase from TB since (I think you said that) you are from Germany. TB seems to have more bad coments than good ones, I don't know them at all so I just need to go by what I read.

Thanks all!!
CM

I am in Northern California and picked up my kit from a second party. Greg would be good to talk to and is in Georgia. James should get his kit anyday and is also back east. Email me at jaysherman54@hotmail.com and I will forward your info on to Greg. You can call me as well if you want. I have some pictures of the kit that I will email you. I am still gathering parts and doing body work. Greg is pretty far along and has solved a lot of the problems. Building the kit would be easier if you could just buy all the other parts needed but that is VERY expensive! The parts are available, just $$$.

Hi All:

Just following up on this thread; if this is a new vehicle why does the odometer appear to read 79,154 miles/Km (enlarged it in Photoshop to see more clearly)? Not saying anyone is a scammer but the pictures aren't really doing it for me yet...

What would be more convincing are more picts of a car in multiple phases of production/completion...all we see are a couple of shells in one pic, chssis picts and 300SLs in anothers...so when you update your site, those kind of pictures would be great.

Keep the info coming Matt.

Hi Matt:

Sorry for being the hard a** but I have read so many stories of people being burned and there are too many operations that came and went in VERY short while, so I am just being verrrrrrry cautious (did I say very yet?).

Thanks for taking the beating; keep the info coming and the more pictures, info, videoed testimonials , the better.

Hello CM,

No problem - we are well aware of the scammers out there and we are taking our time to do this right. We will definitely have more pictures to show of the work in progress.

Some background on the photos currently on the site: these are cars built by Hermann Quint. We purchased the business from Hermann and have been building the car from his design, using the molds and plans we purchased. We have also been making some modifications along the way, which I mentioned in my previous posting.

Stay tuned and thanks for the questions. We are glad to hear from you.

Hello, this is John Mazza. As Matt said, we have been going through some changes on the body and chassis. I can understand the cautious optimism approach, as I would do the same thing. Sure, we thought we'd be farther along by now...but we decided that making the investment in dollars and time now will make the product better immediately. Our focus is on quality. We'll post some progress pictures of the new body and the chassis construction real soon. Thanks for keeping the pressure on, we know there are a lot of people waiting to see our finished product.
