I like the description:

"This is a 1957 Mercedes 220s."

It then goes on to tell you how little of the actual Mercedes is left:

" This car now has a LS1 Corvette engine. It has custom interior. The car rides and drives wonderful. It is fuel injected, Has AC, Power Steering, Power Windows, Power Door Locks, Wilwood disc brakes on the front. Has an alarm, also has remote door locks. This car was built between 1998 - 2001. The motor is a crate motor and the car has been driven less than 2,000 since it was built. The Wilwood brakes were installed within the last year or so and less than 300 miles on it since installed. It has a 8 inch Ford rear end, it has the Mustang II front end under the car."

I usually don't like this kind of thing, but I could live with most of it. The rims would have to go, and the interior is not bad, but I don't like the shifter. On the other hand, the owner has clearly spent up big on the car, and wants 30K which I don't have.
