Hi all I am new to the forum and the world of MB's. I am interested in the older SL's. I have found one that is 1982 380 SL, needs various things, exhaust, tires and new top. However seems to run great and rides fantastic, front in is tight. However this deal with the single chain timing has me scared. Should I keep looking or is it something that I can fix down the road, what should I look for in the engine to make sure it is running ok or how do I have the timing chain checked? Thanks for your help, love the car. Oh it was part of an estate and only has 69,000 miles. I can buy for $6,000.
