On the car you will most likely be able to use leaky valve covers to talk down the price a bit.
Other than checking the fluids etc and transmission shifts, the only other things I'd recommend would be considering getting or changing the lower intake manifold gaskets. Rather easy to do, however it will take all the questions out of engine reliablilty. Overall.. the car could easily go many more miles w/o the change, but it'* a known weakpoint.
My car was at 140,000 miles when I got around to changing the gaskets. Currenlty I'm at 180,000 mile sna decided to change the cam and go for a little more performance. Having made a mistake, I took the entire engine apart and found everything to be in awesome shape...these motors simply don't show wear and tear like most.
