I also recently purchased a Douglas 32 (1974). It was stored on the hard for 5 years before I got her so cosmetically it was a little rough. Mechanically all the systems worked fine after a little lube here and there. Mine came with a Volvo MD2B. After changing out the filters and pumping out the old fuel, it started and ran as though it had run the day before.
My boat came with a lot of literature from the Company, letters from Ted Brewer, original blueprint drawings, etc. If you want to send me a PM with your email, I may be able to scan and send you anything that you are looking for that I may have.
I've had her on the salt and in some 20kt blows, and she’s a solid well behaved boat. I think you'll find she was worth the wait.
