SL issues

I'm usual at the G-forum when visiting this web site. This time I'm asking for some help regarding the SL class.
I'm presently working in the US for a period and have considered bying a SL to take home to Norway.

There are some special rules importing a classic and it's more or less the only way we can get a decent car in without paying in blood to the Norwegian state.

I see that the 280SL is the most desirable of the vehicles, conclusion just by looking at the asking price.
Which engine has issues? where to look for rust?

I did see there was a linq to an article about the 107 series, but the linq did not work?

The model year I'm looking at is up to and including 1982.

Re: SL issues

If you were willing to go to '89, I'd suggest the 560 due to it's newer technology and dependability.

Re: SL issues

I know this is old - but the 280SL is a dream. Zippy and fun to drive.
