I love classic cars with their lack of unreliable, expensive computers, but you won't want to drive it in winter if you live in a road salt state. Be sure to test drive it, and consider paying for an independent inspection at a shop of your choice, not one recommended by the seller. An unscrupulous seller could have friends at a nearby shop who will overlook known problems and not tell you about them. They will look at brakes, steering and suspension components, exterior light operation, tire wear patterns, and the exhaust system.
Keep in mind that finding replacement engine and electrical parts will not be a problem, but body and trim parts will be if you need to replace something. Check out Year One Company for replacement parts.
