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.
