So do I buy the 300SL?

I'm getting close-it's red with 40k original miles. Price is acceptable-but interior was a little rougher than I expected (drivers seat leather and the plastic pod that holds the interior light is "sticky" like it was cleaned with the wrong staff. Is this where hyd. fluid would leak for the top?). It's a dealer and he's fixing the 2 or 3 interior issues I have. Carfax checks OK and I have a PPI scheduled for Tuesday. I can talk to the guy who owned it locally for the last two years. Any advise appreciated as always!

The hydraulic system for the top is prone to leaks.
Something like 11 or 13 separate cylinders.
Check it over closely, can be costly to replace.
