I think it should be OK if the car has been running well.
I have fitted plenty of heads from other cars over the years...mostly in my Lada days.

I would certainly get the head checked for trueness of face at a local engineers. Having a head skimmed is not a fortune, The last one I had done was a Punto...£20.

I fitted two secondhand heads to my CX Safari diesel, providing that the head is flat (will probably need machining), you shouldn't have a problem
