'93 Cher Sport w/ blown radiator

Found a local 93 Cherokee Sport with a blown radiator. Guy says it overheated (240*) and the radiator blew out the side. Prior to this, he replaced water pump, t-stat and all hoses. He's not sure why it blew out other than overheating.

Price is good (<1000) and but I'd rather not buy someone's else's headache. Need tires too. But I need a truck for the deer lease ASAP. How hard is bleeding the cooling system on these? what likely went wrong? If I can spend an evening getting it running, I'm in.

This guys' a gearhead by trade... not sure why he wouldn't throw another $60 radiator in and run with it other than he's tired of working on stuff when he gets home.

would you buy?

I can find others that are in good shape for 1800/2500'ish. This would get me going for about 1300 or so including 4 new tires. Thoughts?

TIA

Sounds like a headache to me. He already tried to fix the overheating issue without success.
