They are capable of interstellar miles if looked after.At that age I would check/change everything,brake fluid,coolant,all filters & transmission oil.
Check/change cambelt if history not certain(incl w/pump.
That way you know for certain what's been done.Valve clearances should be ok,but worth a check.
