Without pics and a complete list of what's been removed I won't even guess a ball park range... most people won't. I actually prefer to avoid these kinds of threads altogether.

Here are a few things you need to consider before making an offer though:
How much will a replacement engine cost you?
Will you be doing the installation or paying a shop to do it?
Are you going to buy a rebuilt engine, rebuild it yourself, pay to have it rebuilt or just throw in a used one and pray?
What other components may need replaced? Such as vacuum hoses, intake piping, air flow meter, radiator, coolant hoses, flywheel, clutch and so on... get a COMPLETE list of what's missing and add to it the items which are present but may need replacing just due to age.

In my area the pricing of N/A's varies a lot... anywhere from $500 to $2500 for running cars. I've seen flawless N/A chassis without engine or transmission sell for about $2000 on CL (but who knows what price they settled on when the buyer showed up with cash and started making lower offers).

If you're going to be paying a shop to do all the work, I strongly advise you just wait and buy a complete car that's in good working order.

Itís really hard to give an exact number since the mk3ís arenít very easy to compare price since there arenít many to compare. If I were you Iíd start high and work my way down say start at $2200 but itís hard to say since price is also dependant on area. It is a 5speed though and I personally like manual instead of auto. If you need to post picks in your ad, take them in the light around the time when the sun is setting. The low light always makes a car look good. Your pics in the shade donít really make it look good.
