Parts for European models

I can buy a 1984 280SE with 70,000 original miles for $2600. It is the European model that was shipped to the US. I know that is a great price but are parts available for this thing? How different is it from the US model? The current owner has made all the necessary adaptations to make it street legal in the US.

Some engine components are different, different exhaust. With a few notable exceptions, parts availability is essentially a non-issue. If the car looks nice, I'd jump on it.

yeah, go for it - nowadays there is such a great amount of parts available, it should not matter at all.
