If you are looking for a car to drive and enjoy, I would say yes. The SCs are a completely different animal from the 4.6 cars, especially with the 5-speed. A brake line is a cheap and easy fix, and the seats aren't going to be perfect on any 140k mile car. The 95 5-speed SC is one of only 522, it is black on grey which is probably the most desirable color combo, and if the car is solid and rust free, it will at the very least hold it's value even as the mileage goes up, so when you sell it down the road you can get most of your money back. Honestly the only thing I would be worried about is with 140k, the head gaskets probably aren't long for this world, so it you are going to depend on the car as a daily driver, I would do new head gaskets and ARP head studs before driving it, this way you know everything will be solid.
