Rust is the biggest problem. Check it all over, lift the carpet and check around the seat belt mountings. Mechanically they're pretty reliable but watch out for overheating, head gasket problems aren't unknown. If it has FWH make sure that they can be engaged properly, if they're not used they can seize up. they usually just need regreasing but its a good bargaining point.
