Classic! love the way the description says that there is "only a slight crunch from gearbox when changing down to second gear"..

Would you be exacting a gear box rebuild on this one, or more likely linkages?

Linkage issues usually are sloppy gear changes or difficulty selecting 1st or Reverse.   These boxes normally have pretty strong syncromesh for quite high mileage.   Odd that it was rebuilt at 20k and is now seemingly weak,  so I suspect gbox will need more attention sooner or later.   On the other hand they are fairly sensitive to different oils - possibly could significantly improve with a refill.
