my first car: 560 sl

I am new in this forum and im here writing for seeking some assistance in the purchase of my first car, something that i always dreamt about, a 560 sl.

I saw few yet, but nothing that really hit me. Now im willing to see a 1987 green with palomino interiors. it has high mileage, about 240k Km, so im pretty worried about it.
The interiors seems decent (i have just few pics) the bodywork needs attention, due to fading paint near the rear trunk area.
the owner says that is mechanically ok, and that has been used as daily drive till few months ago, when he got a new ride.

What do you guys suggest me to do, and check? I am concern just on the mechanic, due to the fact that will be my only ride to work.

the price is pretty fair due to its conditions, 3000$

Hey zenocchio, welcome to BenzWorld. I'd like to suggest that you repost this to the BW107 Forum. You'll find a lot of 107 owners there, and the Encyclopaedia Germanica thread has a bunch of info I'm sure you'll find useful.
