Matt, If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, chances are it's a duck.
To be serious you sound like you have doubts as do a few of the senior members. It's much better to walk away and find another than to buy and find lots of expensive problems later.
You could always get a AA or RAC check done if still unsure but I don't think you need to.
