Personaly I'd pass on that car. It obviously hasn't been maintained and I would imagine it will cost you a fortune in maintenance/ wear and tear item replacement. As an example I picked up my 2002...

I've bought from them on a couple of occasions and never had a problem. Maybe call them and try to work something out or cancel the delayed part and buy it elsewhere.

Check that there is nothing lodged in the pipe that it sits in. Also I think that it has a notch in the thermostat that you have to line up with the housing. Mine went in with no effort.

Look at the rear wheel in that bottom picture. It looks as if it's bent inwards and the whole rear looks significantly lower than the front of the car.
