resurrecting stored '79 450SLC

I am looking at acquiring a 1979 450 SLC with 121K miles that has been sitting under a carport for about 2 years. It was simply parked after last being driven without being prepared for storage. The car is in Georgia. Any input on what I can expect will need replacing/repairing OR on what a Mercedes may have withstood during this time that would normally have had to be replaced/repaired? The interior does have some mold. Any specific products that will get rid of the smell?
