Question e30 - yes or no?

So here's the deal. I need a vehicle not newer than a 1987, and so it's come down to either the AE86 or an E30. Seeing a few recent threads on swapped E30's here, I decided to go with the BMW. Found this listing on CL and was wondering if I should get it? What should I generally look at/for when purchasing a vehicle this old? Here's the info:
