Default 1964 Parklane Marauder

So heres the back story... I am thinking about buying this car for my mother, she basically helped me buy my first home with a downpayment, I am returning the favor by getting her this car she has been raving about for the last year. This car has been at a classic car dealer for almost 11 months.. Heres my dilemma, I am not a car guy at all, I know nothing besides basic car knowledge so im worried about getting this as a gift and it being a bucket money pit.

I got the seller to come down to 10k from the 16k listed price. Ive only seen it once, some paint chips, but body and paint are pretty clean.. The heater motor doesnt turn on regularly , there looks to be a switch installed that when activated turns on the heater motor, the fan speeds on the dash do nothing, it stays at the same speed so that bothered me. I will be taking it to a mechanic to get it looked at thoroughly but wanted to see if anyone here has any advice, am I getting it at a good price on the surface?

Im used to having a new car that starts up right when u turn the key, this one you have to pump the gas while turning key to start, im told this is somewhat normal for other carb cars..

Any thoughts?

Heres a link to the car:
