Wisebeyondyears is correct. unless you know the owner or vehicle history, it may have been "rode hard & put up wet.". It would be a dream car for me. I ended up buying a 1994 Caprice used in 1999, and I still have it. Runs great [knock on wood] & has 271,000 on it. I have enjoyed the car immensely. Good luck with whatever you decided to do!!
