It depends on climate, really.

Check the rear axle for wheels leaning in at the top, at this mileage you could end up spending a lot on brakes, suspension, exhaust etc... all the consumables. Worth keeping an eye here too.
As ever make sure ALL works electrically and there are no fault lights, check they come on and then go off with the ignition key in case some kind soul has blanked them off to cover ailments.

My Mk1 has a very small amount of rust along the bottom of the doors.

That could be something as easy to fix as a borked thermostat or seized fan.

Or it could be a rotten head gasket...
