a 172 is likey to have been driven hard, Check tyre and brake condtions as they wont be cheap, But will give an indication to use.

Check Shut lines and floor pan.

Its more likely to have been in a prang then a dodgy engine

As with any "performance car" Take it for a Good htest drive, get in all the gears all rev ranges you can........

and remember........ It's a buyers market for now, and the medium term.

A good service history = a well loved car!
