    Service history, blue/white smoke on acceleration, blue smoke on start up (cold).

    Cambelt history, crank case breather replaced?

    At that money you should have a file of receipts as thick as the yellow pages, be immaculate inside & out, plus be a lowish mileage manual.

    If not buy a 3k car and spend the balance on getting up to spec.

    Edit - it’s an auto with nearly 140k on the clock and has had two long 3yr plus lay ups in the past ten years. so don’t go above 4k It’ll be dead money.

    Good luck

    Ps if your looking to spend strong money then a Japanese import is a decent shout as they are generally low mileage, mechanically sound & immaculate.
