yeah the car should be in damn good shape if you have to put the motor back in for 1500, i mean i got an 87 N/a blown engine for 300, and it isn't in that bad of shape.

that kind of seems like alot, that motor is out for a reason. If you know how to do it, you might want to pull the head off, shouldent be to hard if its on the ground, and make shure the motor is not cooked, and the head is not cracked
if the guy that is selling it says you cant crack into the engine then i would not buy it. good luck
