Considering a large used acrylic tank? Worth the work?

I have a lead on a 72 x 24 x 24 acrylic tank. Formerly housed fish and presently has a reptile in it but they tell me it holds water. Seller is asking $150 and includes a stand. I haven't seen it in person yet but the owner says it does have a few scratches. Price seems really good but I'm wondering if it will be worth the clean up and scratch repair? Any thoughts?

Here is the tank with its current resident...

Seems good. I would take a look at it. If it seems good then definitely get it! If you do get it make sure you hose it down with vinegar and water. Reptiles are messy.
