Looking at a high milege stang

Going to see a 2011 witg higher mileage it is attractive because it is definetely cheaper and a 1 owner and i just got a new 2016 f150 so this will be a toy for me only.
It has 117,000 miles
My question is what sort of things should i look for and ask about it is at a dealer but i have asked to speak with original owner and also asked about an aftermarket warranty its a 6spd also.
THANKS

Just the usual, check ball joints, sway bar mounts, drive it with the windows down and listen for clunks, etc. I don't think 117K is a lot of miles on these cars as long as they got regular oil changes.

Also, has the clutch been changed? If so, when? Brakes? I am guessing that the price is right.
