1962 220b

I found a nice 1962 220b. The owner says it just needs a paint job and rebuild on the carbs. He is asking $1200 obo. I can probably get it for $1000 or less. What do you think? I am not worried about the paint since I just need a daily driver. And I figure I can rebuild the carbs myself or substitute a Weber. What is to look out for on these apart from the obvious - rust? Are parts still available for them? What are they like to drive?

Be very careful on the "JUSTA"
There are many many potential rubber / nylon , seals, deferred maintenance traps. The W111 220SB I had for 20 years once required over 450 hours to re-seal/rebuild from radiator cap to gas cap. Wheel to wheel. After that it went for 5 years no problem no leaks.
