I bought a 220s about three months ago, so I'm a ponton newbie. This car looks OK for the money. Rust and missing trim parts are a big concern. Generally, sheepskins are a sign of poor seats. The mechanical condition will be obvious. It needs to start, run with some amount of power, steer, and stop straight and without clunks, rattles, whines, etc. No giant leaks.
Parts for the sedans seem to be easy to find and the IPOG is an amazing support system. I was able to get brake and fuel system parts from Mercedes. They are very simple mechanically.
I would go for it. You will get a lot of smiles, hand waves, and thumbs-up driving it.
