27' Morgan Classic 1975?? Questions.

I have an opportunity to get a 1975 Morgan classic. I am learning a bit about the boat but wondered if any of you have some insight into this particular boat. I would be getting it as a project boat and so would be doing some extensive work to it. I know it was built by Catalina using the old Morgan plans but that is about it. Had some of the following questions any answers would be helpful.

1. Is it able to be set up for single handed sailing?

2. Stability and speed?

3. Any pitfalls of this boat (bad weather helm, poor light wind performance or other tendencies that would make it an undesirable boat?

4. Is it suitable for great lakes (L. Michigan)?

Anything you can offer would be great.

Thanks

Gary
