manual or auto? rust? It should be an 8V engine. The heads are prone to cracking on the exhaust side somewhere. How long ago was the tranny replaced. Who rebuilt it? Examine closely for rust where the lower right a-arm bolts to the body. Battery acid can etch and rust this point away. The rest is pretty much the same as a '93 and parts are still available. Keep in mind that you are looking at a 22 year old car, so other things should be considered such as rubber rot on the suspension bushings and windshield surround. That said, a friend recently bought an '83T that looked pretty much as new and drove better than his 88.
