If they kept driving it while it was overheating it could certainly seize....

couldnt tell you the answer but it is deffinatly possible (overheat, oil gets broke down, metal seizes together)

I would NOT pay more than $2-500 for it (if it has good interior/exterior and is worth saving) in the likely possibility you will have to replace the engine.


EDIT- at first look it appears i said $2,500.. NOT true... i meant $200 to $500

(Just had to make it PERFECTLY clear )

Stay far away. It'* most likely due to an upper intake failure, which means major rust and heat damage.
