Lo mileage "70" CJ5 - Pitfalls??

Came across a low mileage (less than 30k miles) 1970 CJ5 - other than headers, appears to be stock and all original. Been driven very little in recent years. Original body/paint outstanding. 6 cyl, 3 sp/od tranny.

If I were to purchase this jeep, I know I would replace ALL belts, fluids and hoses immediately just for peace of mind. However, as I am new to the CJ series, what pitfalls/weaknesses should be aware of or expecting. From limited research, appears it has the Buick v-6 engine. Trouble prone? How about the transmission/drive train? Front end? Wobbles on the hwy?

Thanks in advance for any help or insights.

PS, Jeep newbie here! - hang out mostly on the Porsche forums.
