Exclamation Should I get this?

Tiburon for 1200
2003 Hyundai Tiburon. PROJECT CAR!! 2.7 liter v6 5 speed. 102k original miles. power everything and it all works. short ram intake. brand new battery. have brand new plugs, wires, intake gaskets for it. she purrs like a kitten at idle and roars when opened up.

This is his craigslist ad

OK she needs body work. I got her as a partially repaired front wreck. I drove her 40 minutes home in the current shape but knowing it needs all 4 brakes and rotors, front passenger tire is now flat. car sat for 2 years before I got it

needs body panels aligned
drivers headlight
body panels finished
paint
sunglass holder
Radio

I saw this ad on Craigslist and I was wondering how much it would cost to fix it up for a first car
Thanks for replies and thanks for reading!!

Front wreck on a unibody car is red flag, very likely subframe damage. Which is not repairable.
