You're right, the first of them on the road was in 1980, not 1979. Actually very strange car -- nothing's working, new style wheels (What's chanaged? Modified?)...

The car is a 450SL with a "380SL" name plate on the trunk.

The re-badge thing will really throw you. I was interested in a nice 74 500SL when someone on the other forum pointed out to me the car was actually a 350SL. This is the first time I've ever seen one badged down.

It was actually badged up in the sense that a 380SL is newer. There's a whole bunch (thousands) of 380SLs out there with new front spoilers and 15" rims that have been rebadged as 560SLs in the same vein.

Gee, think anyone would notice my roll-up windows if I did a little "upgrade" on the old 280?
