Is the compressor clutch engaging? Start with that. Check to see if its getting power when activated by the snowflake switch. If not, check the low pressure switch on the accumulator.

My 89 had the speaker grille with no speaker...I swapped a 93 dash in it. Seems like 1993 dashes don't crack like the older ones, but they do like to "bubble" up in some spots.

If they managed to blow the head gasket/cook the engine that should give you an idea on how the rest of the car was treated. P2R's turn in to deep money pits if you buy a neglected example.
