The stylish 107 350SLC coupe replaced the 111 lineup
that was first seen in 1960 as the 220SE and later as
the 250SE and 280SE models.
Thoroughly more modern than the models it was replacing,
it also featured the beautiful 3499cc V8 for added power
and a faster top speed.
Some 360mm longer than its SL twin, and weighing approximately
50 kilo's more, the SLC featured a "useable"
rear passenger seat, and an even larger boot.
though it was larger than the 107 convertible, it was
substantially shorter and lower to the ground that
the outgoing 280SE model.
The body rigidity offered by the 350SLC over the SL
also saw it afforded the title "a drivers car",
one it richly deserved.
Today these cars offer a very affordable and driveable
classic, with parts still plentiful and servicing costs
