It's worth no more than generous scrap money really unless you are 100% sure what is wrong with it.
Think how much you're willing to pay to have another engine put into it, messing around time, and knock that off the asking price!

I'd say that there's another issue besides turbo failure. The car should still start (as mine always did) even with a failed turbo, as the turbo isn't needed until a certain rpm is reached.

I would leave it, unless it is VERY cheap (£500).
