I bought a 87 300SL with 24,500miles on the odo. I got a good pre-purchase check, but still found after purchase I had to spend a lot of cash on the fuel injection and a new fuel tank. This was due to the low milage. Water contaminated fuel sat in the tank for long time and caused rust, which flaked of as I drove it, stuffing the fuel injection.
I learned, don't assume anything, low or high milage.
Get everything checked if possible, even the fuel tank
