Very, very unlikely. IMHO the only possible MB investments from the
seventies are the M100 6.9-litre engined 450 variants, of which the SL
was not one. Even these though are unlikely. You may (again IMHO) be
better off looking at the earlier SLs, which are in my opinion (yet
again) likely to see a small upward trend over the next few years.
Remember this is all just speculation from my side, and you should always
take whatever advice you get in a newsgroup with a pinch of salt and a
large dollop of common sense. I do not proclaim to be an expert on this
subject, I am merely providing an opinion. In other words if you lose a
bunch of money don't blame me!

The plus of this car is that it was MB's longest running and most popular
body style. It was produced from 1972 to 1989. That is also the downside.
You have an early one with the heavy and less powerful engine, simple
suspension, and a lot more age. The 89 560SL will probably have the most
value, and is unsurprisingly the most expensive. However, if you buy it
right, and enjoy the car, who cares. If you want an investment, look into
government bonds. :-)
Has "only" 300,000 miles on it, but it needs another soft top, a new
paint job <again>, new front suspension parts <again>, the motor gone
thur <again>, then there's the transmission leak, the clunk in the rear
end, but the seats are in good shape! lol
