Your most likely problems there are going to be things like seals, carburator and hoses and belts unless the engine has been allowed to sit for a long time without running. You should also make sure the transmission fluid looks and smells good as the seals in the transmission can get hard with age and cause a failure. Remember that all those components are 35 years old.
Does it seem like it has been well maintained?
