Old Cinelli Nautilus frame

I've found an old Cinelli Nautilus frame with fork similar to this one https://www.ciclitorino.com/prodotti/...autilus_00.jpg, and the guy told me he would sell it for 35$, so I was wondering if it is worth it? Frame is in OK condition, but paint is very bad and there are some non-relevant stickers all over it.

A powder coat is usually in the neighbourhood of $100 so, if you intend to build up and ride the frame, you could do a lot worse for ~$150.

If it's a real Cinelli, absolutely! Make sure it is before you buy. As long as it's not dented or bent.

It most likely is original, because I've never heard of copies or something like that in my country of any frame. We are also neighbours with Itally so Italian bikes aren't the most rare ones. New paint will cost me around 20$ since I have paint left from last Benotto project, but since I have 4 functioning bikes already I'm not sure about building it. Maybe resell it?
