Looking at a 04 EAP SVT with 145k miles

A friend at work has a 04 EAP with 145k miles, Silver with black interior.
original owner, car is all original, he just changed the timing belt (original) and tensioner (but not the pulleys and water pump).

Has the original clutch and suspension, has new rear rotors and pads to install.

Interior is decent, drivers bolster shows some wear but not torn, could re-dye it to make it look better.

Body in nice shape, paint is decent but not great. Headlights faded.

I know it will need a clutch soon, may also go back in to do the rollers and water pump.

Pushed down on all four corners and seems stiff.

Always liked the car.

I do all my own work, what else is typical to replace with this many miles?

Car value?

Thanks,
Glenn

Pasta,
Thanks, I need to drive the car when I get back in town.
With 145K I expect the suspension would need to be rebuilt and it is still on the original clutch and drive shafts.
