Look on sl113.org and I think there is a buyer's guide. From what I see in the pictures the seats are wrong, and expensive to get correct seats. A Pagoda is not a car you purchase without doing research and looking at multiple cars first unless some incredible bargain falls into your lap. Drivers that aren't rust buckets start in the mid 20s, restored cars go up to 60s to 80s. Basket case rust buckets are in the 10k price range and probably not worth it except for parts as buying a driver is more cost-effective.
The car not starting isn't particularly relevant. The body and rust situation are. As are any missing parts.
