71 350SL euro (3.5L) - Should I do it?


Im looking at a 71 107 350SL with the 3.5L engine, euro model. It has 391K! They said it burns a bit of oil, no leaks and runs strong. The price is good... If I get it, how hard will it be to get parts? Whatabout the dealer experience with euro cars?
Any info is most appreciated.

Current Diesels:
1981 240D (73K)
1982 300CD (162k)
1991 350SD (113k)

Past Diesels:
1983 300D (228K)
1985 300D (233K)

391K!!! I'd pass...

It's not that had to get parts for the euros, you'll need a good parts person and may have to do some homework on hard to find items.

If it is a Euro, that 391K is probably 391,000 kilometers, not miles. This converts to roughly 242,000 miles. Not too bad for a 31 y/o car.

Good luck.
