don't know what model i have!

hey i'm new to this site. i just inhereted a 1982 mercedes roadster it looks like a 380 sl but i'm not sure because it doesn't have the number badge; however, it does say AMG on the steering wheel and on the front fascia under the bumper. i remember grandma telling me she got it from someone who ordered it from germany. it's a four speed manual, and has 30,000 miles on it. it hasn't been started in ten years. any advice on what i should do before trying to start it? is offline

How about a pic and a VIN? Have you counted the cylinders?
