Value of 1973 450 SLC

I understand 450 SLC's are in demand in Europe. Can anyone tell me the value of a 1973 with 120K miles, in good condition? Value in Europe vs value in U.S. I have one and am curious to know what it's worth.

It's all about the condition and maintenance. These cars are really starting to hit the divide of perfect and/or restorable cars, and the ones that are really destined to be a parts car. Your car could be worth anywhere between $500 and $15,000 (probably no chance at $15,000 due to the miles, more likely a top end around $8000-$10,000 IMO).

I think the median price for an SLC is probably only about $2000-4000 in the US though.

You will get a ton more feedback about that car on the 107 forum, but be forewarned, SLC's are not considered as desirable as SL's by most. Fonzi and I are the exception, not the rule.
