'95 RR Viscous Coupling maybe?

I have a chance to buy '95 RR for very reasonable price. It has blown head gasket, 150K miles. I could deal with that part.
What makes me worried is, that the front drive shaft is removed / or not installed. I am thinking maybe the VC is bad. Is there a way to check it on the street. The "truck" is not running and it is very cold. The VC is @$1K. That would break the deal. It is how much I would pay for the vehicle. anyone with "crystal ball"?
Please someone talk me out of it!

After 120 mile trip, it was sad, to see once beautiful truck is R.I.P state. The metal under body was like made out of saltines, seats ripped, headliner about ready to go. Front corner of the hood rusted thru. The owner left water in the system since summer. Last few days was here in Colorado -10 deg. at night, can you imagine what happened. When I open the reservoir cap it was frozen solid. I think there will be more than head gasket to fix. Very sad. Sorry Paul, no business for parts this time.
I guess the question about the VC was premature also.
Yikes! I've parted out nicer Rangies than that. Keep looking, but perhaps you should look further west?
