Newbie in the Netherlands
Hi all MB fans and owners,
I am James and am an aircraft engineer living in the south of the Netherlands in a village near Maastricht.
I am looking to buy a 280SL or 380SL.
I have a question.
I have looked at a 380Sl from '85.
For me the big problem is there is no service history. How much does this reduce the value and what are the pitfalls to look out for on this model?
It has some body rust, probably stone chip damage. All the pasnels line up nicely and I didn't see any accident damage/repair evidence. I was told the exhaust was damaged taking it off a trailer, hence making a test drive impossible due to the noise. It has 125000 miles/200000 kms approx indicated.
Any help and suggestions would be most appreciated.
Even walkaway and don't look back, would be understood.
