Grey market info

I have a grey market 1980 W126 280se with manual trany. I have had no problems with getting parts so far. I was interested in some genral info. The speedometer shows miles (128,000) and I thought a German model would have KMs. How would I go about finding out who brought it over, and what the real milage is on it. Any thing I should look for on as far as maintaince (ie timing chain etc.). It looks like it was well maintained and then the previous owners grandson got the car and he did not maintain it well at all. How hard should it be to change the clutch? I think it may be on it's last legs. I am going to start with the hydrolics first to see if that helps. It is not hard to work on and fairly cheap. Thanks for any info.
