1979 450sl

Have never owned a MB and considering buying 79 450sl. doing a little research and very surprised at the low horse power and poor gas mileage. I realize you don't buy one of these for the mileage but still surprised, Anyway also have read some post on other sites about over heating in traffic. Also some what concerned with some things I have read about the fuel injection. Have not test drove it yet and was wondering if any thing specific one should look for in a 1979 MB. Do MB require a lot of maintenance or if they have been treated right are they really as dependable as I have been led to believe. Any insight would be greatly appreciated
