plan on giving it a thourough test drive and wanted some advice and what to look and listen for while checking this car out
Well, if it's 'built' it ought to be able to take a little pounding on that 'test drive'. I'd drop the hammer and let it rip - put it through some grueling miles accelerating, shifting, braking, cornering and driving in general. A sissy spin won't tell you siht. Put it to the wood, work it, and let it tell you.

Holder350 take it over some pot holes and listen close for any pops/clanks/bangs that might be structual or suspention parts that have given way.

Take it to your local SHOP.....NOT a quick lube place, and ask them to give it a once over.
