1971 280SL - Need Advice

I am looking to buy a 1971 280sl. The car seems to be in excellent condition. All numbers match. Has soft and hard top, airconditioning, rebuilt auto trans. The only issue that I see is that the normally visable spot welds on the upper inside fenders is not visable. Current owner said that original owner, who has since passed away did have the car repainted many years ago, but no record of any wrecks...

Questions:
1. What is this car worth?

2. The exterior is light beige. The interior is cognac, steering wheel is black. Is this color combination original?

Thanks for any advice & help!
Bob

RE: 1971 280SL - Need Advice

I've dealt with the owner of oursl.com and he evaluated my 280SL a few years back. On the website he mentions the spot welds on the inside fender and it seems like it could have been replaced.
