The bike is facing the wrong direction, but for the components I can see, you got the original XT components. You did good at $150, especially since you got a rigid fork with it. I also would of bought it.

Looks like a previous owner wanted an orange bike. I'd just refurbish the bike and ride as is for a while, but it is a good contender for a repaint. That saddle is not what would of been sold with the bike. It looks gone to me, but I don't have any experience refurbishing old leather saddles.

Look for wide (2in+) tires. Maxxis DTH are a popular choice on here and I've been wanting to try the Schwalbe Billy Bonkers.
