Buying a Pao

#1
Hi I have unexpectedly been offered a Pao at a very reasonable price. On first glance it seems immaculate but has done 120,000+ miles.
Before I take the plunge can anyone give me some pointers on what to look for before I part with my money?
Many thanks

Rust, rust and rust. 😀
I had ome for a while and even though it appeared fine at a glance, it was actually riddled with the stuff.
Rear sills and front cross member are places to check

Oh, and round the windscreen edges.
The rubber seals perish and water gets in there. It’s a windscreen out job and they are hard to get out without breaking.
Replacements are hard to find, along with pretty much all other body parts

Thank you Wehey - there is rust in exactly the places you describe but I am prepared to spend a bit of money on her to get that sorted. Windscreen problem is noted but have insurance covering that so it will be their problem if it breaks!
