I agree that it sounds like it will be a lot of work to get it how you want it, both mechanically and cosmetically. I was just wondering why you would even be thinking of buying it if you think it is a step down from your 87. Maybe to resell it? Not sure that would be financially worth it considering all the work it will be to get it in good condition. Besides, as has already been pointed out, you really don't know what you are getting into until you start digging into the repairs and start finding a lot of other hidden problems.
Only two things are infinite... the universe and human stupidity; and I am not sure about the former.
