Post 450 SLC in South Africa

I have just handed over my 450 SLC 1978 for restoration after a few years in storage. I dread the cost... Any clubs in SA that I can network with to share and learn about this FAB car. dean@bold.co.za

Howzit Dean,

I have a 450SLC 1977 over in Cape Town, that I'm enjoying.

Service Manual can be found if you look online, parts, you have to go to all the usual places and look.

In Cape Town at least, the best Merc place is German Auto in Salt River.
The worst - Orbit Motors - they are just plain unhelpful.

Good luck with yours!

Gas guzzlers, but a fun drive.

I've just redone mine, this morning replaced turn indicator with a new one.
Yesterday, redid the driver door vacuum seal and the latch.
Fun cars to work on, they're pretty easy to maintain, and pretty much zero electronics to hassle with. Its almost all mechanical, which makes it easier to spot/hear any issues!
