e-mail the classic center they can find the original date card that will read the info for that car. Go to this link and scroll to the bottom and type in the info. Tell them what you just told me.

Can you post a picture? I can tell you if its is a SLC or not.

If it does have this panel then it is a true SLC. if it doesn't then its a SL.

Why do you think it is a 450SLC instead of a 380SLC? Sorry, but your first post doesn't make sence to me. What does 107/116 mean.

Now, I'm confused. Did you just buy the car from the person who posted this? http://www.benzworld.org/forums/vint...858-help.html?

badassb is my dad, actually. we thought we had it solved when the VIN revealed that it was a 450SLC. However were getting some conflicting numbers from the vehicle as my dad had mentioned in his first post.

As I said before, the car is a 450SLC.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
