Buying a 380SLC or 560SL?

Hi I'm looking to buy a new car and I found a man selling two convertible Mercedes one an '88 560SL and the other an 81 380SLC. They both have about 112k miles on them and are both in very good condition. He is about to retire and doesn't really want them anymore and is selling them. He was asking $2500 US for the 560SL on here 88 Mercedes SL and when I called him he told me he'd sell it for $2,000 (without even haggling) and that he was also selling another one from 81 (which I assume to be a 380SLC). I wanted to know which one is the better car. He says they have both been kept in very good condition and he just wants to get rid of them before he retires and give them to someone who appreciates them. Is it just me or is this a really good deal? Again which car of the two is a better buy?

bump. Anyone? I'm leaning toward the 560sl because it has a V8 and 5.6L
