That is a steal! Just the fun factor alone is worth it, and the 350 engine is excellent with no inherent problems at all. Peppy, better mileage, a real winner. If it has over 100k on it, the first thing I would do is change ALL the fluids and filters, including the power steering filter (under the metal disc in the reservoir) and then the timing chain. If there is little wear evident on the rails when you remove the valve covers, (incredibly easy on that engine) take a good look. The best way is to remove the plugs, crank the engine to TDC and see if the timing marks on the cams line up on both. If they do, it has been changed and you are good to go.
