It's a 2.3, so not really difficult to work on. Headgaskets are things to keep an eye out for, also rust around jacking points, wheel wells, etc.
The interior has some issues, like the canted ash tray, but that's not too hard to fix/replace. The four speed gearbox is a nice touch, and so is the interior seat trim. Easy to care for.
If the car has no serious rust issues, drives fine, all the electricals work, then I don't see why this wouldn't be a nice buy. I'd probably see if you can get it for $1500 or so first.
Verifying the mileage is another thing to do, make sure the odo does work, so a test drive would be smart.
Manual windows!! How I miss those.
Just give it a look.
