Default Is a pre 1990 celica any good?

My brother has a (I don't know the exact year) toyota celica all trac turbo st165. He blew it's turbo and the hired hand took the battery and a few little other things. It also needs a paint job and tires and some new furniture (the stuff that is in it is really really old and is almost nonexistent). What would the cost of fixing it up be? How much is it worth? How fast can it go and what is it's 0-60 time? Who all thinks that if I paint it alpine white with blood red rims that would be a neat looking car? It actually needs a new head gasket not a turbo. Thank you.

GREAT car, and very rare. 0-60 is about 7.9 seconds, and top speed is around 135. A decent paint job starts around $1000, and you should be able to find seats at a junkyard for $200 or so. Those are all ballpark numbers, it's hard to tell without seeing the car, but if it was mine, I would definitely invest a little money to get it back on the road. You won't see many of the All-Trac turbo's around.
