3 QUARTS LOW!!! could there be damage?

Okay, after detailing our 1985 380SL with 130K miles today, I drove it around. I notice a little bit of blue smoke on the startup at one light. So I checked the dipstick, a tiny bit of oil was on the tip.

I added THREE quarts before it was up to the normal level!!! It seems to be driving fine, but...

My question is... before the new oil was added, could I have done damage driving the car when it is 3 quarts low?

PLEASE your help is greatly appreciated, I am just really concerned.
