is this worth it??

a 91 240sx hatchback with 150 thousand miles on the body nd only 50 thousand on the motor, red, good body no major dents or scrathces, new clutch, 05 tags, clean title, the family are all the 3 owners. the only bad thing is the vavles click and its got a blown headgasket. i called around some shops and they said they could change it for 400. is there ussally somethin else wrong when the headgasket is blown cause i heard you need to like mill the head and change the thremostat etc etc. the gurl said i could have it for 500 bucks. any help would be greatly appreciated!

See if you can talk her down to 400.

Are you planning on doing a motor swap soon? The engine doesn't sound like it has much life in it...valve ticking is never good.
Unless that could be the chain tensioner rattling.
