To buy or not to buy?

I have the chance to buy a 1977 Scout Traveler for $600. The guy needs the cash and is trying to get rid of it.

It is running and has recently (past year) been used for a 400 mile round trip. It's pretty much stock from the pictures I've seen (attached to message). I guess I can only attach one picture. If you want to see the other 3, please let me know, and I'll email them to you.

He has replaced both front fenders and the hood. He didn't get to finish the build. It has the usual cancer just behind the passenger door at the front of the rear wheel well. It also has some holes in the floorboard.

It has the Nissan 6-cyl diesel, 727 Auto., Dana 44's and he does not know if the transfer case is the Dana 20 or 300. I don't know either.

The truck is 400 miles away from me in Tennesse. That is my only reservation about it as I've never seen it in person or driven it.

What does everybody think? Am I a fool for not having picked it up, yet?
