Might buy a 1987 Chevy S10 2.5L 4cyl 4spd manual

I local guy is selling a 1987 S10 with a carbureted 2.5L 4cyl and a 4spd manual for $400. I can probably get the truck for $300 or less. It has 137,000 miles on the motor and transmission, and has a new clutch. Its lowered a little with steel wheels all around. The body is pretty straight, apart from the dent in the front right, and the body is primer gray.

Im only looking for a vehicle for the winter because its pretty dangerous riding my Ninja 250 in the snow (the girlfriend and family are very uneasy about me doing it). Insurance is going to be about $350 for 6 months, which isn't too bad.

I was just wondering if anyone has had experience with these trucks and particularly with this engine and transmission? Is it worth buying? Is it a good candidate for my ecomodding hands?
