The only year for the 350SLC in the US was 1972. Although it was named the 350SLC, it had the 4.5liter engine. If it is a 72, it should have the small front and rear bumpers without the big rubber pieces. In my opinion, a much more attractive car.
Also, the 1972 350SLC would have electronic fuel injection while the 77 SLC (which was a 450SLC) would have mechanical injection.
