Default '85 Ranger engine smoking and leaking coolent

for awhile now I have been looking around for a good decently priced ford ranger to use as a farm truck

and while browsing my local Craigslist I found this ad

https://bgky.craigslist.org/cto/5702547614.html

according to the owner the engine is burning oil and has 2 freeze plugs rusted out but other then that its running fine

I'm thinking of maybe getting this truck but wanted to get some more experienced opinions on it

any and all help is appreciated

Do you have a motor to swap in?

This one runs but twice as much:

no i dont have a motor to swap but i was wondering if it might just need some TLC its gonna be a farm truck so it needs to have 4 wheel drive and i also really want a manual otherwise i would get that one

P.S (im also pretty sure i could get a motor if i needed one)
