1973 Mercedes-Benz 350SLC


Specifications


Description

 

When Daimler-Benz were designing a replacement for the much loved Pagoda-roof SL range it was decided to simultaneously offer a longer wheel base 2+2 version of the new model in order to fill the gap from the demise of the W111/112 coupes, hence the creation of the SLC.

The new SL/SLC range, dubbed W107 by Stuttgart was an altogether stronger, safer, and more sophisticated design than the Pagoda before it.

ABOUT THIS CAR

  • Sporting chunky, squared-off lines the W107 boasted construction methodology that incorporated side impact protection in the doors along with crumple zones providing unparalleled safety. The SLC also features a slightly raised roof line to give greater head room along with unusual side windows devoid of a B-pillar thus creating a pillar less coupe once the windows are lowered.
  • Original Interior - finish is to the usual Mercedes-Benz high standard with space to seat four adults in comfort, the long doors alleviating any aggravation when accessing the rear.
  • Mechanically - comes with overhead-cam V8 with 3-speed automatic transmission.
  • Good body looks to be clean of rust - nice paintwork.
  • Comes with flash Kraut wheels
  • First Registered in New Zealand in 1986 - previously registered in the United Kingdom.
  • Very pleasant car to drive.

Such was the success of the SL/SLC that it remained in production largely unchanged for nearly two decades with nearly 250,000 built. Often overlooked today the SLC shares the same virtues as the open-topped SL; outstanding construction, robust mechanicals with safety features ahead of their time help to make this prime Mercedes something of a classic bargain!

Will be sold WOF'd and Registered if sold in New Zealand.
