1979 350SL

Hi there
I just purchased a 1979 Mercedes 350SL that has not been driven in 15 years. This car was originally sold only in Europe and I am having a hard time finding any parts, etc. for it. Most listings for this year's Benz do not even list the 350SL only the 450SL model. I do not have a owners manual so don't even know what type of spark plus it needs. Any ideas of where I can get the technical info or anything else for this car??

Advanced Auto should be able to reference all the motor particulars like consumables ie. plugs, caps, filters, etc. I have an ancient Chiltons manual that must be as old as my 79 450SL, but no mention of the SL model you have?? Was it maybe non-export?
