Doing my typical Craigslist search when this beauty shows up. 1988 Volvo 740 GLE wagon for $825 OBO. Body looks prefect but needs some mechanical attention. NPOCP?

I've been looking for a classic Volvo for a long time now. Almost bought a 740 turbo. Almost got an 850 sedan. But none were perfect. This one claims the engine needs a tuneup and misfires a bit. How serious could this be? And for the price, is it still worth it?

Interior looks spotless and in really good shape. All original and everything works. I like it a lot and if I could have it for $700, might be worth it!
