88 honda prelude for $200?

So yesterday I took a look at an 88 honda prelude si, the body was pretty straight except for some rust on the hood and a dent on the rear quarter panel. The interior looked pretty good except the windows are hand roll up... Is there anyway to switch this? and how? They had previously swapped the engine to a carburated model. I tried turning it one but it just wont start. It keeps going vroom vroom vroom vroom vroom vroom. What could it be? Would this be a good buy? oh and the rear axle is bent or something. So the right rear wheel sits at an angle.

Well if it's a clean body then 200 dollars is a good price, the hardest part of the entire thing would be that dent. I wouldn't even try fixed the carbed motor when B20a's are dirt cheap. I can't give you input on the wheel.

If you're up for a project, this would be a great place to start. If you just want one that's already in decent shape, I would either keep looking or lower your expectations. It is, after all, an 88….a 23 year old car.
