Default 2001 blazer for $425

So this guy has an 01 2wd 4dr that he will deliver to my house for $425.
He claims he's replaced the injectors and fuel pump.
It starts up, runs rough, stalls out. Seems to want to run if you keep your foot on the gas.
Didn't smoke at all.
What would you do?
Buy or pass up?

Tell him you'll give him 300 and pick it up yourself. Then if you get into it and it's not worth fixing you can at least scrap it for what you paid after you pull off any parts you need for your blazer

Here she is. I think it's a good find for the money. Interior looks good. Needs a bath on the outside.
I put my bluetooth scanner on it and the only code showing is P0300. The O2 readings look good but the fuel trims are a mess.

I gave it a look over last night. It only needs:
1. sun visors
2. map light switches in the overhead console
3. a center console lid
4. a door jamb switch
5. seat recline handles
6. dash speaker covers
that's about it for the inside.
exterior appears to need only a good cleaning on the painted parts.
grill is faded badly.
will probably paint it to match the rest of the truck.
driver's side back door is dented but repairable. other than that, not a dent or scratch on the whole darn thing.
amazing.
