last year, i bought a '52 initiale estate for 4500 with similair mileage.
as well as top of the range, this was totally immaculate and had a massive file for bills - including a new engine turbo and cat.
this car now is worth about 1200 to the trade and about 2k privately.

after buying, i needed;
- new front shocker at n/s
- discs / pads all round
- rear suspension bushes (labour intensive job apparantly)
- new backbox
- new egr valve

obviously every car is different, but these are points i would certainly reccomend you consider before buying.

also, as above, the price seems a little steep even for the full leather models such as a loaded initiale.

if chosen carefully, they make a good cheapish older car - really like mine, even though it cost an extra 2k shortly after buying....
