Any 280SLC leads?

Been looking for a unique 280/380SLC. If anyone has any leads on one let me know. There seems to be nothing decent on craigslist. The brown one in Seattle is the most promising but the owner seems to have it sold (buyer coming Saturday he said). There is also a china blue 380SLC for $14k, thing is sweet but way out of my budget. Ill attach pictures of those two cars below. Im in the market for something unique like these ones.

I knew a guy about 15-20
years ago who bought a perfectly functional and relatively nice 280SLC, but all he really wanted it for was the CIS-injection...to put into his C114 280C.

He also put a turbo into that 114.

There was a blue 280 manual here in LA about a year ago for maybe $3500 on CL. Saw it ended up on eBay for awhile.

As for the other one from years back, I have no idea. Was an older fellow who passed away, wasn't sure what became of his cars.

Was it this one? Been trying to get ahold of him to ask if he ever sold it. I cant find his contact anymore though.

Yes. I think he texted me actually. I'll check to see if I still have that on file.
