Finding a timing belt will be the least of your worries.

It's 99% certain there will be bent valves necessitating cylinder head removal, etc, etc, Not a easy job on your model.

Unless you can do the job yourself or get someone to do the repair as a favour then the cost will probably be more than the car is worth.

You'll need to confirm if there are bent valves before going any further.:)
