Possible Purchase --- what else do I need to check?

1983 380SL

I'm considering this one. $7K of work completed in March 2007 included:
  • double timing chain
  • water pump
  • brake master cylinder & booster
  • all hoses and belts
  • new shocks
  • motor & transmission mounts
The bad:
  • NO hard top
  • Soft top just okay --- has tear in passenger plastic side window
  • 205K+ miles; odometer inop
  • Climate control fan inop
  • Seats, sun visors, and carpet need replacement
  • Records of recent work available, but no history.
