84' 300SL Questions


I am a newbie here on the forum. I am looking at purchasing an 84' 300SL. The owner says it is a Euro version and called it a Euro 380.... I am not sure about the 380 since it looks like maybe he could have meant 320? Anyway the car has some decent maintenance records which all have be performed my our local Mercedes.

The car is in nice condition but will need a new fabric top. The hardtop is installed on it at this time. The paint will need to be done since the red it was is now quite faded.

This is a 6 cylinder version. I did see from the records that it has had a valve job (didn't read entirely the work order) but it does run nicely and sounds good. It has not been licensed for 2-3 years. This is the result of a nasty divorce I am told.

Anyway my wife is really the one guiding me in its direction saying if I want another car ( I have two VW Cabriolets,, the Rabbit with a rag top) and a 61 Ford F100 Uni-body rat rod...

I have always like this little Mercedes styling and for once a car that my wife will like too. It would mainly be her summer/Sunday afternoon toy I think.

Any comments?

It's a 280SL. Proceed to the R107 forum for more info.
