Transitioning to a pa 32-260

I am a new pilot who is looking to step up from the cessna 172 I trained in to a 5-6 passenger plane. The 6 keeps coming up as the plane to look at, but comments are made about how big of a step up it is to make. There is a 1967 260 six that is low time all around, SMOH SPOH & TTAF, at my home field that is for sale at fair price. I would appreciate any thoughts the six experts have for making that kind of move?
