Post Tripp from Gold Coast with rare merc

Hi people,

I am new to the forum here as the title suggests I am from Gold Coast, Australia.

I have my baby who is a rare 1978 280SLC Mercedes Benz with Penta AMG rims and has every factory option from heated seats to headlight cleaners. was with the new deeper engine which was increased to a factory 185hp with only a genuine 84,543kms

I am just starting a restoration process to get her back looking like new so mind the photo's as she is partially pulled apart and filthy but once done it will be like she just rolled off the factory line.

Also if there is one thing I could ask for would be a service and ownership manual for her, I don't have one and only need to look up a few things so it would be appreciated if someone could give me an electronic copy. That would really make my day!

Otherwise I can't seem to find a section in the forum that 280SLC coupe's come under, some guidance would be nice as they aren't listed anywhere on the forums home page for different topics.

Otherwise I hope you like the look of my classic coupe!
