I recently saw this ad for an 89 SLC and was rather taken with the car. I confess that the colour scheme - and the interior in particular - was what attracted me, but I wondered if I was in danger of committing myself to something regrettable! SLC COUPE 450 For Sale (1979) on Car And Classic UK [C602786] I spoke to the vendor today. He said that there is some emerging rust on the rear valance, on the leading edge of the passenger door, and similar on the driver's side. He also said that the trim, panels and interior are in good condition. He's driven it for around 1000 miles and is impressed with the engine and gearbox. Quite a lot of work has been done since 2011 (it was previously an SL Shop car), and there has been some recent expenditure for the MOT in March. I gather that the last owner (the 7th) used it only very rarely and the car suffered as a consequence. Anyway, I wondered if anyone had any views on it? I will be overseas for the next few days and it's quite a way from me anyway, so won't be able to view until at least Bank Holiday Monday. I normally do my research post sale(!) but thought that the wallet-raping potential of this just might justify some sensible thoughts beforehand. Grateful for pointers, opinions, or sectioning under the Mental Health Act. Thanks.
