I would say that it is not a bad deal for $900 but it may cost $1,500 to rebiuld the trans and over 3,500 to build the engine up nice. this is a close price range

Be careful with all the computer 'stuff'. You will want to get the engine harness, computer and all the sensors unless you plan to cover to carb.

Also, you may have checked already, but if you can pull the intake and heads to check the bore (should be 4.001 if its standard), and any cracks in the lifter valley or a cylinder wall.
