I own a 1974 280 SE W116 but am wanting to buy a R107 SLC. Thinking of a 70s 450, does anyone have any tips for which year is best, what to look for etc that would be useful? Thanks

The newer, the better, but avoid D-Jet cars, 1975 and earlier. The same caveats that apply to a W116 apply to a C107.

Welcome to the forum. Wherever you are, lookout for rust when buying. Around the front wheel weels, inside the sills, (lift up the carpets), in the boot, and aorund the louvres and rear window.

Thanks for your help so far! I live in Australia but am returning to UK in July, taking the w116 with me , and am looking to buy a 107 SLC there. Is there anything I need to know about UK models?
Thanks in advance!

Rust is an even bigger issue with UK cars.. There is a very good article on buying an slc in issue 53 of the uk magazine Mercedes Enthusiast
