    It's very rusty but no holes or any structural damage just rust. Any clue what I should be willing to pay for it, and should I restore it?

    How are the interior left and right burn plates? What condition is the baffle in? If they are in good condition I would offer maybe $100? It will take a lot of manual labor to restore and the deep rust pits may not come out. Do they have the top cleanout port door?

    If I can get it for under $50 would that be a good deal regardless? I can then check all details.

    Well under 50 if the plates and baffle are shot or missing. They are pricey, but last a long time with proper burning. Though if you are handy with welding and steel you could fab up a substitute.
