what the mechanicals are like is the critical point.
Depending on your skills, I'd say at that price if the body is good underneath the mechanics are incidental. If the gearbox and suspension is shot (I'm assuming it'll need an engine rebuild, brakes and spheres in any case) It'll still be useful to someone with a rotten or tatty car to use as a mechanical donor.

The photos are a couple of months old and the owner pushes the car in and out of the garage every so often when he needs to get something else out.

I'm going to view the car with the expectation that the rest of the bodywork is sound and this for me is the key part.

It will have bent valves when the belt snapped, so I am budgeting to take the head off and sort that out. It will want a recommission on the rest of the fluids and consumables.

I'd absolutely love a valver, how much would it cost to get the engine damage fixed by the broken cam?

Probably cheaper to source a used cylinder head and fit that I imagine, hopefully the pistons will be ok?
