Anyone interest I would be willing to inspect. It has been around for awhile. Only about 4 miles from where I used to live.

Nice looking SL. Wonder about the '71 year though. Not enough pictures to tell.

I've seen a few '71's with the aerial on the rear quarter. Nothing strange in that.
Hate to disagree but the original location is front fender.
Only thng I can think of is if it had an auto antenna. Then maybe it was located in the rear. Can't see why MB would do that but...............

now I do recall auto antennae on the front as well. I think it was the new girl (cite epic welcome post) who had raised this question... Seems she had an astronomical quote to have it replaced, due to removing the kick panel, etal...

Ah yes, Tanalee. I recommended a rubber stubby replacement. And about the antenna...

Yes. The antenna on the fender is a PITA to get to and remove. Both my '72 and '73 have it there.

Doesn't mean they are original. Maybe standard spec. V US.

Yeah, it's ugly. I escaped it by the skin of my teeth ('85). I thought it was mandatory in '85, but I guess Mercedes paid somebody off.

Haven't we discussed this fraudulent seller before. It will go for around 14K. Whether it actually sells is another story.
Someone from another BW forum was following this group. He may have been from another country and the car he received was a rusted piece of crap IIRC. He listed other names the group of sellers go by.
