Can you tell us more about the 500slc? Do you know if it has AMG engine mods? Solid lifters (may be able to see through oil filler), and AMG cams (need to remove a valve cover and put mirror behind the camshaft.
That makes a big difference in the value of saving that (incredibly rusty), once awesome, car.
Also, do you have ANY documentation on it? It seems even the manuals in the trunk are for the wrong model car.
How did it get so rusty? I can't imagine the UAE weather did that to the car.
I'm trying to help find someone to save that car (before I start asking for parts to be picked from it).
My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.
