Hi sparky,welcome to the site.
I have a 53 plate with 77,000 on it,when I bought it 2 years ago it had 66,000 on it so I suppose age & milage are similar to yours at time of buying.
I had to have a new alternator after about 2 months due to a ford fitted extra by the previous owner,but apart from that I have had a new egr valve fitted this August & a new engine cooling fan & it`s wiring sorted by a brilliant independant,also a new a/s condenser (again from an independant),other than that it`s been a fabulous car.
I`m sure you`ll enjoy yours,just as I have mine.
