What is the sound of one piston slapping?

So I found one of my dream cars on Craigslist, a Volvo P1800ES (unfortunately, not in the condition of the one below).

It looks like it probably needs new paint, but the body is in surprisingly good condition.

But it doesn't run. I'm not terrible when it comes to fixing cars, but a non-running project car could be an easy fix or a "I'll never get this thing to run" issue. The current owner doesn't know why it's not running.

What's the best way to begin figuring out what's wrong with the car and, more importantly, should I buy it? He's asking $2000 obo.

All thoughts are appreciated. I'l really love to have this as a daily driver.
