New Member-looking for info on 380SL

Hello group:

I am a new member comming back to the Mark. In the past I have owned several mercedes models up to th E320 Class.

I have always loved the lines of the 1980's 380SL and have an poortunity to purchase one. This car is a 1981 in excellent condion inside out. new convertible top, great hardtop, good tires and paint.

I have been researching this model's idiosyncrasies and know about the timing chain upgrade. Are there any recalls?

Please let me know or direct me to any information source.

Best regards,
