C70 Problems

I have a 1983 C70 (Passport) with only 2200 miles on it.

Everything seems to be fine, but have a couple of concerns:

Gears shift fine, but when I'm at the 38-42 mph range, I seem to hear a SLIGHT grinding like noise/rumbling metal noise.

Also, I know that these little engines get hot - is it normal to, I guess, smell it (just a hot burning (oil?) smell. I check the dipstick All the time, and it's fine. Maybe there is a pinhole in the muffler?

Any help would be great.
