'85 280SEL

I have a chance to buy a very nice 1985 280SEL for a reasonable price. My question is: since the 280 was not sold in the US by dealers, will this make the car more, or less, valuable "down the road?" I really like the car, but am concerned that a model not "officially" sold here might make it worth less money as time goes by.
I'd appreciate your opinion (especially experience).
