Default Thinking of buying a 1986 honda prelude....?

Theres an 86 prelude for sale ive been thinking about... the guy has showed me pictures but im not going to look at the car physically until sunday.. hes asking $1500 for it... here is the problems he said it has:

Tires Need To Be Balanced

Needs a New Clutch Cable

Starter Will Need To Be Replaced Soon

This is all he mentioned He says these are simple repairs and i could probably do them. he has no problem with letting me test drive the car so i dont think hes trying to hide anything else. this would be my first car so i want to make sure im not getting ripped off and yea yea you dont need to tell me to get a civic or corola insted everyone has told me get those cuz parts are cheap.. i dont want a civic or corola...

So Are these realy simple repairs?

is $1500 reasonable as long as nothing is wrong with the car other than the 3 repairs listed?

Thanks Guys for any knowledge you share

oh yea he also just replaced the moter it has 1400 miles on it the body had 160,000 it has a new sound system and new wheels.. he says hes selling it cuz he got a 98 accord 5 speed
