in my own opinion, at 112,000 miles a replaced top would have been subject to the elements... i.e. not garaged. May have been subject to vandalism as well; or, maybe the previous owner just didn't care too much about the car. Consider the cost of a new top also... if u end up footing that bill while the car is in your possession-it will not be cheap. A good replacement is about $1100. from the dealer maybe twice as much EXCLUDING labor.
Cosmetically, if the car wasn't taken care of... then it would in most likelihood mean that the things unseen (engine maintainance, upkeep,etc...) may also have been neglected.
Again, my views are entirely my own. I'm a stickler for cars in their original form, and maybe just a little more particular to detail than others are...
