1979 300D with broken fan belt

as if things couldn't possibly get worse from what they are. I just bought a can of engine starter at autozone, the guy there told me if i sprayed it in the intake and the car started it need glow plugs... well i did what he said and soon after my car started and ran. since my car set about a week without running i went and drove it about 5 mile when it started overheating. I parked in at my house and popped the hood and found that i was low on radiator fluid and the belt that goes around the fan, alternator, and engine pully had busted and got lodged in the gap bettween the pully and engine. after removing the belt i couldnt get the car to even turn over. So is there something catastrophically wrong? I need answers so i know if i should invest more or just simply sell it for parts as is... PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!
