Tap Into Your Inner Hipster With A Restomod 1959 Mercedes-Benz O 319 3

Talk about classic people carriers and the name Volkswagen will definitely come into discussion, as their Microbus continues to write history.

However, not many know that Mercedes-Benz had an alternative to the VW Microbus, introduced in 1955 alongside the medium-duty L 319 truck, and called 0 319, as part of their vehicle expansion plan.

And if you happen to be looking for one, then you have come to the right place, because RMSothebys have this gorgeous example listed for their Arizona sale, which takes place in Phoenix, on January 18-19.

Expected to fetch $175,000-$200,000, the 1959 Mercedes-Benz O 319 features a modern direct-injected engine from the German brand, married to an automatic transmission, and air-ride suspension adapted to the stock dual rear-wheel setup.

All work, which included bringing the exterior back to its former glory and painting it in the factory colors, alongside transforming the interior into a camper van, was made by its previous owner, a computer engineer, who spent 15 years working on it.

Some of the details that should make the purchase even more interesting are the centralized circuit-breaker panel and lighting for every cubby and compartment upon opening, propane and water tanks installed underneath the body, and meticulous plumbing and electric work.

This makes it ready for its next outdoor adventure, but would you rather have a classic Mercedes or a similar Volkswagen Microbus?

This BMW 2002 Project Car Is Powered By An M5 V8 23

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in BMW, BMW 2002, BMW M, BMW M5, BMW Videos, Classics, Restomod, tuning, video on 11 23rd, 2017


When BMW first launched their 2002 model in the late 60s, it’s unlikely they ever imagined somebody would fit a 400 horsepower V8 underneath its bonnet.

Then again, the title of this video is “Dream Build”, where the dream was to get this 2002 Bimmer to accept the S62 V8 engine from a 2001 E39 M5.

Now that the build is ready, the owner of the car thought fit to talks us through everything that went into this project and how this car differs from your regular 2002 model, even though you might not know it just by looking at it.

For starters, a lot of mechanical changes were made in order to help this car handle all the extra muscle. So despite it looking mostly stock, some major underbody reinforcement took place, while a Nissan 240SX “donated” its front and rear suspension to help the cause. Other mods include brand new fenders, new doors, a new quarter panel, rear tail section, basically a lot of changes that thankfully didn’t do much to alter the car’s appearance.

Inside, you’ll find Recaro seats, a momo steering wheel, custom gauge cluster and some nice white contrast stitching all over the black leather.

Earlier this year, we saw Jay Leno drive a 1976 BMW 2002 with an S14 M power unit, from a 1989 BMW M3. It’s safe to say this one here is way quicker.

Restored 1969 Jaguar 420 Looks Like It Just Rolled Out Of The Factory 17

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Classics, Jaguar, Restomod, tuning on 11 17th, 2017


This 1969 Jaguar 420 has received a complete overhaul inside and out, courtesy of car personalization atelier Carbon Motors, which specializes in everything from custom upholstery, hi-fi audio systems, exotic trim coatings as well as doing full restorations, which sometimes include metal work and rust removal.

Now, if you like classic Jaguars, you might find the 420 to be quite interesting. The car initially came out in 1963 and was styled after the S-Type, however it did gain a more linear front end in order to match the rest of the body.

Inside, it was more luxurious than the S-Type, although that’s not something that’s immediately obvious when you first see an example that’s in dire need of repair – like this one was initially.

Thanks to Carbon Motors making both before and after pics available, we can see just how different the car looks now compared to the state it was in before the restoration. The interior has been completely re-worked, from the dashboard to the door panels, the center console and the roof. Even the wood trim received an upgrade, looking brand spanking new squeezed between its black leather surrounds.

As for the exterior, since we didn’t get any “before” pics, all we can say is that it looks extremely clean, featuring a dual tone design with a stripe running alongside the car’s shoulder line.
