If the body and engine are in pretty good to really good shape, then yeah, go for it. Is it stock?

If it it starts and idles good, sounds good, no visible damage, no rust on the underside, decent interior, buy it. I dont care if it needs a rebuild on the tranny, the top will run you about a grand installed at the right shop.
