Description

The SLC, as the sports coupé was officially called, premiered at the Paris Motor Show in October 1971. Its exterior resembled that of the roadster right down to the windshield. The flat roof stretches over the five-seater passenger compartment, which ends in a huge, very sloping rear window that is curved in two directions, which in turn dictates a comparatively great length to the rear and whose trunk lid, unlike the roadster, has a slightly convex contour. In the side view, the length is documented by the larger wheelbase, 2820 compared to 2460 millimeters, and also by the line of the side windows, which, as is customary in a Mercedes-Benz coupé, can be fully retracted without an annoying B-pillar. With the SLC, however, this question posed a problem: The short distance between the door and the rear wheel arch required a complicated and therefore potentially malfunction-prone turn-tilt mechanism to allow the rear side windows to be completely lowered. Karl Wilfert's way out of this dilemma was the later stylistically controversial, but highly distinctive, double-glazed “screens” with the built-in slats that subdivide the side window and make it smaller so that the front movable part can be completely lowered. For the first time in this car, the standard first aid kit was stowed in a special recess under the rear window, a model for many subsequent Mercedes-Benz models up to 1995. The SLC was offered from 1971 to 1981, first only as a 350 SLC, then from 3/1973 as a 450 SLC, from 1974 as a 280 SLC, only in the last year from 8 / 80-7 / 81 as a 380 SLC, from 8/1977 as the 450 SLC 5.0 and also only last year as the 500 SLC, with the same engines and transmission equipment as the Roadster.

Our example is a 450 SLC re-import from Japan. The optical condition is neat, both inside and outside. Unfortunately, the dashboard has already suffered and shows the usual cracks. The engine and transmission run well, no critical fluid loss. Work must be invested in the subject of sheet metal work. There is badly repaired damage from the past and acute damage that needs to be dealt with. Therefore a nice basic vehicle for an experienced screwdriver / welder, which will receive its HU-Siegek after a manageable number of working hours and which can already be fun next summer.
