Default '97 Accord, 150k miles $1800: good deal?

Hi everyone, I'm planning on getting a used car. Its a 97 Accord with 150k miles on it. I'm getting it from a mechanic (who's the mechanic for pretty much all my friends here). He said that a guy dropped off the car at his place cus it needed a new transmission and he didn't have the money to get it, so he (the owner) dropped it off at the mechanic's in case anyone wanted to buy it.

The deal I'm getting is that the mechanic is going to put in a 'new' (refurb?) transmission in the car, and my total damage is going to be $1800 (for the whole working car).

Now, I've read elsewhere that transmissions are the ones to go before the engines, and Honda engines can last quite a bit. So given the fact that he'll be putting in a working transmission NOW, should I be worried about the miles (or other things maybe about the car)? I did a carfax on it, and it's had 5 owners so far, with no accidents or anything. Ran about 11-15k a year in the hands of all the owners.
