All those problems sounds like they can be taken care of in a few days... the paint master can take out the rust, and foglights are easy to replace (I'm on my second aftermarket set LOL). Sounds like a good deal as long as the transmission holds out... my roomates girlfriends 2000 4.0L GC (almost loaded with 4WD, moonroof, OTIS, CD changer, ATC, etc.) had a problem with an output shaft seal that made it feel like her tranny was slipping. Luckily she talked to me and her roommate as soon it started and it was fixed within a week of it happening. Other than that, the 4.0 is rock solid. I can imagine the V8 would be even better! Good luck with it.
Why would dollying the Intrepid be a bad idea? It clearly has the power to do it. Might only have a problem with the transmission if it has never towed something before... Our 1998 Tahoe towed something for the first time in its lifetime last summer (Carlisle weekend actually, my dad wanted to kill me for going to Carlisle instead of State College LOL), at 130,000 miles to move my sisters bedroom and living room furniture from State College, PA to Flemington, NJ. It was fine on the trip, but a couple months ago the tranny started leaking and the tranny shop determined that it had to be rebuilt.
