It was for sale on a Finnish classifieds site, but I couldn't find the ad.

With American-style headlights and yellow fog lights, but with clear indicators, the front looks like a car from the years 90. The grille has been molded into the hood and the bumper is made of fiberglass. The front rims at 7 branches probably come from a Ford, without central covers.

The trailer was built from a Mercedes W124.

The name DEMEC is synonymous with a Finnish car and tuning supplier, Design Mecklin. Even today they generally equip ambulances and still mainly Mercedes.

Inside, there is also yellow, from the dashboard to the trim of the leather seats. Nothing here seems to come from the same car. It also appears that the central steering wheel cap did not survive

At another time, with a different steering wheel and a bunch of stickers. At one point, it was the centerpiece of an auto show, Not less. It looks like it served as an advertising medium for a wheel seller, like the Wolfrace Sonic.

The asking price for this Mercedes at 6 wheels with his trailer was from 14.800 €.

I would like to thank Joel Pessi and Tero Mätäsaho for the rest of this article.

This early February 2021, the Mercedes SLC 350 V8 and its trailer are for sale again in Finland. Its price rose from 14800 € to 34990 € !
The ad says a big, expensive restoration job was done on the car.

Founder of mm2 France, oto6, then from Sixmania. The 6 wheels and more have always been a passion for me. It started in 1980 thanks to a certain Christian de Léotard, you know ?
