The Holy grail. At least for me anyway. Saw one for the first time as a kid on "Leave it to Beaver" yeah it was a re-run... Even in black and white it looked amazing.

I'll never own one, although, I got a hold of a nice Baja Bug so maybe it's possible.

I remember going to a MECA collecto back around 2005 and a guy had three of these cars with the box for 300$ each. I should have bought a few.

Got it in the mail today! It IS going to be a shelf queen. Looks good as is. Needs a set of exhaust pipes and hood hinge holes.
I did not buy the tractor, are those collectible too?

This is Really a cool Car! I Guess it is actually the first plastic cox Car made Before the Flagship Models of the Dune buggy and Baja bug. I would like to see one run on the tether line. I had one years back and I cut my right hand finger from the Knock Off hub cap spinner. Here he comes Speed Racer!!!

I'm with Eric on this one, nice score!
I have a complete Benz engine, and that's gotta
be the heaviest flywheel Cox ever produced.
Thanks for the photos.

Nice one!! I have been after one for a while. It is a very complex model, pull steering wheel to raise hood. The engine and trans is complex, would like to see pics of these.
Whats wrong with the hood? I see parts for these on eBay once in a while. There is a little driver the sits in the seat also.

Beautiful model Rene! I saved several photos that CEF member "Hinge-man" posted when he rebuilt/restored his.

I believe that this is the part you need for the bonnet..

I asked the PO if he had the driver and exhaust pipes. He said he doesn't recall ever having them...or the Box. It looks to never have been fueled as it's really clean inside and the piston is rusted in place ( now soaking in PB blaster) and that IS a dang heavy counterweight on the flywheel fan. Thanks for saving those pictures Roddie, I didn't want to disassemble the rear end, as it turns and spins quite easily. The hood "hinge" was packed in the front seat. I'm only missing two, the half round part of the hinge mount on the bonnet. In the pic the right side is complete, the left side is missing both "holes"
Yeah, she's a sweet and almost complete!  Check off item on bucket list x

I was thinking the same, Ron. Maybe losing the hood and going vertical with the cylinder
was supposed to make it recognisable as a fuel powered car. Very popular at the time, as
we all know. I wonder if Cox had a PR hand in it, as Hollywood was "just up the street".
Gee Wally, ten bucks won't buy a glow head today.

Maybe Cox wanted the engine to be seen, they sure didn't show any other way to ID who made the car.

This topic drove me over the edge!! I found a Cox Mercedes  in parts, all new. I hope it goes together easier than a Stuka. Looking for the box now.

I glad to see a CEF member get that "parts" car, if it was the one on e bay just recently. I requested a complete inventory list and only got a a few extra photos. But, it did look complete.
Edit: I see your pics, yup that's one! Yes, it'll go together much, much easier than the Stuka!

The body is pretty disappointing, covered in scratches. It must have been stored in a tool box for 56 years, a lot of polishing to be done. It is much larger than most Cox cars.


1961 cox mercedes benz racer Dsc01515



The engine is frozen, I need to take it apart to install the muffler. It will take a lot of care to put no tool marks on it.

Thank you for the great tips and guidance, I will heed all of them. I was hoping to just assemble the model, now I have another project!! lol!
Just a note, the muffler part # is 6086, same part# in the model paperwork. Can you tell me the differences in mufflers?
