1982 280 SL (euro) Please help

Hello,
I live in Savannah, GA. I recently bought a 1982 Mercedes 280 SL (Euro/never sold in the US). Please let me know the engine model for my car so I can order the manual online. By the way, I think the car model (closest to mine) is the R107.
The engine is a 6 cylinder (inline-2.8/fuel injected).
I wish I could find a good parts dealer for the car.
Thanks
Lui

M110. You can order the Haynes manual for the gas W123 280 models which had the same engine. And yes, your car is an R107.

For the rest of the car, you can use this manual

Hi from Coosa, Georgia. I have 3 friends with the same car and I get them parts all the time. I have over 100 MB parts cars and sometimes can come up with used parts compatible with your car. Feel free to email me or PM me anytime for parts requests or part number information. Be sure to include your VIN to make parts lookup easier. Unfortunately some parts are specific to this exact car and some are only available at the dealer. I may even be tempted to deliver parts to you so I can visit a friend that worked with me at the MB dealer in the early 90's. Your chassis designation is R107.042 and your engine designation is M110.990, hope this helps. Thank you for your service Armymedic!!. Chris from Coosa.

You cannot change your future without disturbing your present.
It looks a whole lot more like it does today than it did yesterday?
