Value of 89 islander

So i have the chance to buy a partially disassembled 89 4.2 5 spd islander, needs wiring and vacume(ahhhh) hooked back up, the motor and tranny have not been started/ran since installed but were told had ran. the body and frame are in execellent condition for my area, no rust holes no bubbling that i noticed. there is a large hole were someone didnt know how to remove step and ripped it out(would be covered easily by rocker gaurds). needs a floor pan welded in but does have it. only thing he thinks its missing is a drivers seat. has both tops and bikini top. no lift or any mods, does need new tires as its been sitting in a garage for the last 6 years or so. what do you guys think this is worth in current condition? or at least some quesses. or if you sold/bought a completed /running YJ around that year what did you pay. my plan is if i buy it is to finish it and sell it. id like to keep and make a dedicated trail rig but that kind of defeats all the money i put into my JK
