Should I buy this 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse

I was looking at Craigslist and found this 2002 Mitsubishi eclipse for $475. Upon further inspection the drivers hood popped up while driving and trashed the windshield and top. The car does not have a hood, doors, and he removed about half the top presumably with a saw. He then welded in a square tubing frame. It doesn't look that great, has a body kit of some kind, 5 speed Manuel, 90k miles, aftermarket exhaust, says it runs well as was slick before the hood came up. My question is, is this car worth $475? I kind of want it just to mess around in it and have fun. But if that doesn't work out, could I sell the parts and make my money out of it? How likely is it that I could purchase a hood and doors and Jerry rig a windshield to make it Street legal? Thanks.
