I mean for $40 is this really a serious question?
But no really, I'd grab it if I were in your situation, looks like it only needs some minor things, obviously rear tires and hexes. Hard to tell by the pic, but maybe thats it?

I had one of those a few years ago. Tough truck, good for a basher. TowerHobbies has any part you will ever need for that thing. Good buy in my opinion.
