Want to buy '89 Vanden Plas 131,000 .... Owner states Stall Sensor Light comes on sometimes .... I am researching this problem. Anyone have any stories ?

The car needs a power steering pump. I have been looking at that tells me the private sale value is $1061, NADA is showing $6k + on the LOW end? Kelley Blue Book wont even go below 1994.
Any help on that and how difficult a Power steering pump is to replace would be appreciated.
