Default picked up an 87 kmIII for 500 canadian but have some ?'s

Just picked this car up tonight(non turbo, auto ) Found in in the local bargainfinder and scooped it up quickly as they usually sell for much more then that. Body is in pretty decent shape considering its from Alberta, Canada and is 19 years old. Couldnt really complain at the price but it doesnt run right now.

The guy before me bought it this way and said it needed an ignition coil which is completely missing. I also noticed that the coolant lines were off and the top bolts for the timing belt cover are loose. The timing belt isnt broken(i had a peak)

I havent been able to crank it over yet as the battery is frozen but im wondering if you guys could tell me what potential reasons would be for removing the rad? The only thing i can think of is the timing belt. Ill be trying to crank it over tomorrow and pull the plugs to see what they look like but i wouldnt mind your thoughts in the meantime.

Thanks

they probly tried doing the belt and screwed up lol

take the cover off or pull back as far as you can... turn crank to 0 and see how the cams line up
if thats fine then try the distributor, make sure that's on tdc too
