Well unless your planning to do it yourself, I wouldn't start.

Depending of course whats wrong with it. I'm just about to rebuild my engine and its going to cost quite a bit. If you add in rings, gaskets, seals, water pump, timing belt, skimmed head etc. and labour. I honestly can't see it being worth while. A perfect beat sold there for 2000 pounds recently so I can't imagine what you would pay for one. The only reason I'm doing it is cause I know my car know and I know what needs to be done.

I dont know whats wrong with the engine but i think its serious
new pistons and the like
I was only going to pay 500 for the car
but i was told getting parts was murder
I was hoping to buy a recon for 500
or get some one to rebuild mine for the same price

Who is doing the offering?
I would be interested in the car for the front end.
