I'd be hesitant to purchase a vintage boat with a cored hull. Simply too many unknowns and too many risks.
I'd also agree with the post about chainplates and expand the comment into all deck hardware.
A sold FRP hull with a dry balsa deck will last eternity with minimum attention.
A wet cored FRP hull with a soggy balsa deck will be a eternal nightmare.
