Question seized engine - can it be rebuilt

I've been looking for a cheap Benz for awhile that I could rebuild an engine on. I think I found one, an 88 190E 2.3 AT for $600 w/seized engine due to lack of oil. It will not turn. The car supposedly has about 125K w/ a good transmission. No body damage and all parts are there.

Can a seized engine be rebuilt? What would the worse case scenario (a dollar figure) be in terms of parts and machine shop work if needed.

This would be my first rebuild (gotta start somewhere right) and its entirely possible I could botch the job anyway but it would be nice to get a decent working car that I resurrected myself.
