If the oil tube is melted that engine is thru, odds are there is severe mechanical damage throughout. Probably melted pistons too, when plastic is melting where oil is at I would guess your well above 300 degrees there and who knows what the combustion chamber temps were.
Is the wiring harness melted where it is in contact with the block?
I would not buy anything thats been overheated, you just don't know how far you have to get into it. If you have a replacement engine for it then that's another story.
