I'd say you can't go wrong with that provided it spins.
a quick upgrade to a quick change tool post and it's a sweet lathe.
There several brands of that same 9x20 lathe and I think the parts all interchange.
I bought one a couple years ago cleaned it up added a qctp and fixed some broken handles ,replacement parts were cheapest at Grizzly.com.
Paid $150 for the lathe had $200 in parts and cutters,sold it for $900!!

Doesn't look too bad.

Check the gears for broken teeth and the machine in general for crash damage

If it turns, lead screw and all the gears work its a steal. Parts are available for anything broken or worn.

+1 !! If it isn't DOA, I'd grab it and run for $250! If there is some tooling included (I do see a 4-jaw chuck on shelf below) you've really made out well.
