1985 380 SE

Hey, I dont know much yet about these cars, but this week I'm gonna go look at a 1985 380SE (188,880 miles, only rust I can see in pics is below the tail lights) and was wondering if some of you could fill me in on things to look for / look out for, any common problems, or even random quirks with these. That and I have just some general questions about these I would rather go to the threads for, rather than scour the internet for wrong info.

Belt or chain driven timing?
Carb or EFI?
4 wheel disk and/or antilock?
Air ride or springs?
Also, Common issues and such?

Thanks a lot, really appreciated! Hopefully this one ends up to be good and sometime down the road pick myself up a C126 or C124.
