There can be many other things wrong with the car. It's a chance you will be taking if you purchase it.
I recommend you ask the seller if he/she has any service records. that way you can tell what parts have been replaced already.
But then again, if you said its "project car" and you get it for dirt cheap, it can be a nice project for you

Hi,

if your willing to spend for it go, first to check if fuel is coming in, mine had some fuel coming in, but it backfires, when we replace the fuel pump, which was just 3 weeks old,
it went fine until now hahaha, the pump was not oem.
