As long as it was done by someone who knew what they were doing, it should be fine. For older motors you probably would want a rebuilt one, but I'm not totally sure on that.

Mileage potential on modern cars is astounding. If you find a trustworthy rebuilt, terrific, but if you go for a high-mileage, lightly-abused original, you may come out ahead in doing (or having done) your own rebuild if you have a spare driver while the job's getting done. At least you'd _know_ what was done, and how.
Unfortunately, like so much car stuff, there's just no telling about used things until you've used it for a while yourself.
