If you end up parting it, I might be interested in a LOT of the parts.

Well, hopefully I won't need any of the stuff, but that interior is very cool.

What I can't afford is the 3+ day drive back east.

I am hoping for big cash-money for those bbs rs. The reason for selling is only to get car-slush-funds. Too bad the guy I am buying the the SLC from wouldn't take these wheels.

There has to be someone that would love to have that car. It really looks like it would be a great driver.

That is the radio that was apparently stock with my 78 SLC. Does it suck? I think I want one.

48hp, I LOVE this car! It reminds me of my first Mercedes, a 1980 280 SE W116 with green tartan plaid interior.

Just how bad is the rust? Is it mostly superficial or has it gotten to the structure points?

Is that interior original? The stitching looks great as opposed to the piping and is that leather or vinyl?

Anyway, mostly just curious.
