450SLC - Japan

Post by JAC000 » Sat 03 Dec, 2016 4:34 pm

Have been looking online at SLC's and there are a couple for sale in Japan with super low km's.

Any big differences compared to Aussie delivered cars worth noting?

"super low kms" ... this can mean, that they are really good cars ... or they stood in a traffic jam all their life. Here in Germany there are a lot of re-imports too, either fantastic or rubbish. My donor car (1983 SL) looked nice too, but had a badly repaired accident ... so that's why it ended it up as a donor car :laughing6:

Japan cars had their national version that often coincided with USA, Sweden and Australia in terms of engine choking, compression etc.
Not always but IMO more often than not.
Anecdotal evidence suggests Jap cars are likely to have more features/optional extras.
