I am new here and will introduce myself later. In short, I have a 350 SLC from '73 that my father (and me) bought about 15 years ago. He didnt really drive it a lot, and I drive it a few years now.
Now it is in need of a new repaint, after I had to well some places.
The original color is 906, light blue metallic. The interior is a blue Pullman.
I didnt really like the 906 color a lot, but sometimes I like it. But it is original, so for originality I should paint it the way it was. The car is otherwise completely original.
Since in my city there are 3 (or 4) other SLC's with the same 906 color I would rather repaint it in a different color. But because my interior is blue, I can only choose some colours.
I searched for it online but couldnt find any pics of SLC's with the colors 904 (darkblue) and 172 (grey metallic).
In a new repainted condition '906' would look like this car, which in fact looks pretty good when in good shape:
Who has pictures of an SLC (or SL) in the color 904, and 172?
I was also thinking about 'non-mercedes' colors, but I am not sure about that, I think its better to use original paint codes.
