Default What is this chassis? Buggy

Got this at the pawn shop just wondering what it is. Ballpark value? Can it be converted to Electric? Whats the cheapest motor I could put on it? Whats a cheaper but decent Servo for it? Prefer Hitec.

a couple hitec 5645,s and a dx2.0 and a sts engine will get you running for around 300 bucks.
you will still need a starter box. and pipe.

Well, I would like to see about going brushless with it first but might try to find a cheap motor at the local track. I run 18r at night and know a few people that race buggys. I have a 3PM radio so I am covered there. Really debating my rc future on this. I have a electric slash brushless and thinking about selling it to put money into this because I want something more durable and 4x4. First step is going to LHS tomorrow with it to see if possibly its stolen. Anyway it was $35 if anyone wanted to know However they also had a AE monster truck and thinking they got both at once and figured the roller was not worth anything.
