Default Superformance buying tips?

Hello all!

It's been a while since I've been on the Cobra forums after I sold my FFR Mk3.

I'm most likely going to pick up a SPF cobra soon. The price is right (low 40s), although it has higher mileage (30K range).

There's some road chipping in the front, and it could use a thorough wash and polish, but seems mechanically sound.
The paint being what it is means I can only make it better, and I won't scream at the kids if they touch it
My FFR was in a beautiful candy apple red, which would swirl if you so much as looked at it sideways. The ladies loved it though

Are there any points I should check out before purchase or during the final test drive? I'm more familiar with the FFR chassis.

Upon just sitting in it, the car is much more solid feeling than the FFR. The doors feel solid by comparison. It checks all the boxes my FFR did not (427 small block, IRS, real knockoffs, no power steering mess to deal with).

Any tips or advice would be welcome

A friend has a backdraft. Great cars, bigger than original dimensions give you lots of options. Friend’s has a coyote in it and and will go like stink.

Superformance is pretty original (except the glass body). I’ve spent countless hours sourcing original type parts. It goes like stink.

Average person can’t tell the difference.

All about preference.
