It's a big ballpark! It maybe a looker but.... New,legal, MOT? Marginal rusty underneath cars can scrape through leaving you to pick up the bill for the next one. Clunky engine, noisy gearbox, clutch slipping or on it's way out? Need to to know more about the car to give you a figure but 300 to 3k might cover it! If you don't know the 96 find someone who does who'll check it out with you. There's probably someone near you, where ever you are, who'll give it a look over. They might even know the car. Good luck.
