Hi Lynn welcome

One that requires no work will be hard to find these days but look for something pref standard thats not been tampered with or a bodykit hiding anything,get a poke around the battery tray and fuse box area under the bonnet also check the carpets for wet spots ,footwells known for holding water and suffering rot also arches and rear chassis legs etc 

Chassis number under the flap on drivers side carpet see if its got 1 lol

Usual checks with Gov website for a free mot history check that will advise on any previous rot or welding 

Check for any gunk under oil cap and get the car up to temp and make sure fan kicks in and heaters work

Theres a lot to check on these old cars now but most is always easily sorted

Anything you need to know just ask and someone will give advice 

Cheers Del
