help - can someone look at an EBAY car in Illinois ?

here it is

I would like to know if it is something that can be diagnosed and driven back (a full days drive to Denver )

If not, all I need it for is the 5-speed tranny and the rest , including the new tires are for whoever can help me strip it in the area.

To far for me.
Looks interesting.
I would expect a day or two for diag and repair.

Odd that they didn't even make mention of the glow plug system...not to mention the starter and battery.

I'll bet that whoever was working on it didn't know much about diesels...this could be a steal for someone who wants a project
