Indeed, it seems very unlikely that it is usable as an Amiga as is.
One of the pictures (http://safir.amigaos.se/bildgalleri/users2/15357_9.JPG
) shows a daughterboard with EPROMs plugged into the 86 pins expansion connector. It's very easy to hijack the whole computer through the Autoconfig protocol right at start so it is likely that the computer was booting directly into these EPROMs.
Interestingly they did not bother removing the kickstart ROM.
Also, 8000 NOKs isn't that expensive: that's 22 NOK a day for a full year. Just stop drinking beers and it's yours.
