FOUND: 1997 Geo Metro Hatchback - $2000

Ok, so I need some advice on this to see if it's worth even investigating further.

I found a 1997 Geo Metro hatchback (pictures attached) for sale nearby for $2000. My question is, is it worth investigating at that price judging from the picture below.

The ad says that it's an Automatic () and that it has 160K on it. How much will the auto tranny cost me in average fuel consumption / how annoying will it make FE driving / how easy is it to swap for a manual. And how long do these things usually run for, is 160K considering near the end of the life for a metro?

Thanks in advance for the info.

(I REALLY WISH THIS WAS A MANUAL TRANNY )
