Hi,

I'm looking for some good advice on buying either a SLC or early SL.

I'm particularly interested to know where these cars tend to rust and what to look out for other than the obvious.

Also do they have any particular mechanical faults that I need to be aware of.

I'm going to have a look at a couple this weekend, so any advise would be much appreciated.

Thanks

sl buying advice

As well as the archives here, I would strongly recommend checking out www.sl107.com, www.mbworld.org, www.haygood.com/mb450sl1978.htm, and www.xk-sl.com/. These should keep you quite busy. Also, everyone says have it checked out by a qualified tech before you buy. The only thing I have heard outside of those sites is that some sl's have the steering wheel on the wrong side of the cockpit [:D] Good luck.
