This is a very unique SLC due to the fact it has the lightweight and very peppy M110 engine (inline 6 cylinder with a dual overheadcam) mated to a factory 4 speed getrag transmission. This combo makes this car light and nimble allowingfor great acceleration and even better handling. After driving many 107s (300SL, 280SL 4 and 5 speeds, 500SL, 560SL, 380SL, 350SLC 4 speed, 350SL 4 speed, 380SLC, and a 450SLC) the 280SLC 4 speed is hands down the best 107 for a very enjoyabledriving experience. Being a coupe, this chassishas less flex and more rigidity while driving which enhances handling and minimizes noise. The roadster version with the removablehard top is prone to rattling and water/air leaking in. Further more, this example is finished in the rare color of petrol (blue green) which is near impossible to come across in a 280SLC 4 speed.
Overall this car is very original with weight saving options such as a sunroof delete (also lowers the center of gravity), manual windows, and no passenger side mirror. This gives the driver a very raw driving experience. This SLC recently got a new fuel pump and hoses and is ready to be drivendaily or enjoyed cruisingto cars and coffee on Saturdays. It doesn't leak or smoke and has a very strong engine. The idle is very stable at around 900 RPM and starts right up every time.The car is being sold ASIS, a PPI is encouraged. International buyersare welcomed. Feel free to email me with any questions.
