I think its a good deal. Even if you part it out you will make more than what you payed. By external head gasket does he mean valve cover gasket? Its an easy diyable job. I say go for it.

Looks good to me. Needs a good cleaning, and you would need to find out exactly what this head gasket leak is, but other than that, that's a great price.

Buy it. The Style 5 wheels and tires probably worth that much already.
