Classic Motorsports Car Catcher: German Hillbilly

Need a parts chaser with a bit of German flavor? How about one of the most attention-grabbing haulers you’ve ever seen? However you slice it, this 1988 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL pickup isn’t your average Autobahn stormer. Custom built by the guys at German Motorcars in Florida, it’s a beautifully rendered German version of a purely American invention. Streetside Classics is offering this unique hauler for $16,995.

Since the mid '80s, I have mentally mulled over the idea to take a MB or BMW midsize wagon and build a German El Camino.

There's a baby blue one just like this is see here in town on a regular basis. Was there a run of them, or is it a great minds think alike kind of thing?

I think it needs the exhaust pipe to run up behind the cab with a big oversized chrome muffler spouting out, just like the big rigs!
