Default 1978 Honda Civic general questions?

So I have a couple questions about this car I'm thinking about buying.

The guy said that it'll do 60mph but it's really loud and such.

I just want to know if maybe this is true for these cars and if not what could possibly be wrong.

Also if you're knowledgeable on these could you give me a little info on them.

1978 Honda civic has the 1.2 liter the top recorded speed on a completely stock car was 102 MPH now most likely that was on a brand new on not one which is 35 years old. With a simple tune up or Carb/engine rebuild you should beable to achive 80 or 90 MPH pretty easy. But you have to remember this car came out with 52 HP and weighed around 1500 lbs. A cheap 600 dollar d16 and some wiring and you could have a mean little honda.
