A warts and all introduction to owning, driving and maintaining a Mercedes-Benz 280-560SL or SLC, and a step-by-step guide to evaluating one for purchase. This book includes 100 photos of what to look for and what to avoid, plus a realistic assessment of running and restoration costs, as well as market values. This includes servicing and spare parts prices, and the relative values of the various models, specifications and vehicle conditions you are likely to encounter.
Written by the editor of the Mercedes-Benz Club Gazette, it draws on the experiences of the late Roger Edwards, a former Mercedes-Benz apprentice who spent his life working on and enjoying these cars, along with input from Roger’s colleagues who continue to run his company. It also benefits from the author’s 30 years of owning and restoring old cars, and his contacts in the world of Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts.
Written in an easy to follow, jargon-free style, this book will equip you with all you need to know to buy a Mercedes.
