If she's mechanically sound, had the required upgrades done over time, and clean to boot...seems like a perfect boat for the Lake. Hunters of that vintage were well designed, but not too well constructed, so make sure all the critical stuff (rigging, chainplates, rudder/rudder stock, keel and hull joint, keel bolts, water intrusion to deck) is checked out with a thorough survey and have fun!
