For me the number one thing was and you touched on it was rust. Go further than just the body, check the frame and most importantly where the leaf springs bolt to the frame. The rest will be what you want then how much are you willing to do to it. I had 3 things that I wanted, no rust, 6 cylinder and automatic. I would have give in on the transmission but not the other 2. Mechanically didn't bother me to much as I am able to work on a lot of stuff but everyone is different. You know the miles are going to be high because of age unless someone has redone the motor. If you go looking for show room you may be looking a while, paint and interior are easy. Good luck in your search.
