I'd think of it like this:

They are essentially willing to sell it to you for $1500. 

If you didn't own it today, would you buy it for $1500 and fix it up?

P.S.   I wouldn't ever want an airbag-eqipped vehicle without airbags.    Seems like you'd be opening yourself up to tons of liability.

I'd readily buy it from you for $1500... to give you an idea of my mindset on it.

I spent 10 years rebuilding salvage vehicles. I did them right, and resold them for an average of 70% of market value. I did stuff under $5k for the most part, but the idea can apply. Most all salvage titles and WSP inspections. It's no big deal.

Replaced lots of airbags. Wrecking yard airbags were readily available, some as cheap as $50, so upwards of $400 each. A couple required replacing the entire dash. Several required windshields which wouldn't have been otherwise damaged. Once the project is done, I took them to get scanned out and reset. Rarely had to re-do anything.

Your call, but I know 30+ kids who would love that for a first car! I'd use it for a "large UTV" since I usually have several passengers in the field! Takes all kinds!
