If I were you I would do lots of research BEFORE you buy the car. Find someone local that knows the car and can/ will mentor you. Benzworld is a great resource and full of knowledgeable owners, but may not be nearly as active as you may need as a new owner. That is not a knock, just reality.You should check with the local MBCA section and see if there are any ACTIVE members that have cars like the one you want. If your section is like the one here in Houston it will be mostly a social club and of little help when it comes to maintaining, repairing, or restoring a vintage Mercedes.
I mention all this so you don't wind up with a car that you shouldn't have bought, and it is taking up space and resources, while you are searching for support so that you can drive your dream car. Good luck with the journey.
