Hi all,
I have an acquaintance/friend that is selling his 1979 280 SLC Euro on Bring a Trailer (with NO reserve):
https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1979-mercedes-benz-280slc-3/

It is in very nice condition and the interior is something to behold.
Someone is going to get a nice car and probably for not too much money (compared to Pagodas).
Please check it out and tell me what you think.

Yes, it does appear to be a pretty nice car. I guess the US headlights were a part of the certification process. These cars with the small bumpers looking absolutely first rate with the Euro lights.

Will be most curious to see what it sells for.

Thanks for your thoughts Jonny and franjo,
It is currently at $11,800 with 3 days to go.
I agree about the bumpers.
If it had US bumpers, I probably wouldn't have posted about it. The bumpers contribute significantly to the look.
