W114 280

Good morning,

Last night I was looking at a 1973 280. The body is in decent shape and the motor runs ok... The odometer has only84K miles on it.( Based on the service records it has not rolled over). I drive a W115 300D and have a spare parts car so that should help me with some components. At first glance the car needs a paint job, new tires, exhaust fixed, some electrical fine tuning and a really good cleaning.

What else should I look for in regards to the motor? Are they easy to maintain?
