1979 450 SEL questions

I am looking at buying a 1979 450 SEL for about $2000 USD from a local doctor that wants it off his hands. It's a real beauty. The car is in good shape and only has 61,000 original miles, the physician being the only driver of the car. He just rarely ever drove it anymore and wanted it gone.<p>Question: Being an Audi owner I am not familiar with M-Bs, is there anything that I need to watch for with this vehicle? Any particular problem that is typical for the 450? I feel I'm getting a great price so I'm trying not to be too picky.<p>Question: Anyone know the horsepower and torque values for the 450 engine?<p>Thanks<p>Matt Parker
