Default Stupid idea - R on eBay headgasket?

Having an absolutely stupid idea, theres an 07 plate V70R on eBay at not much money as its advertised as having a suspect blown head gasket.
Ive read that these engines can suffer broken cylinder liners, was wondering which is the most likely to have failed on a 200k engine, the HG or a bust liner?

Head gasket Id be confident to change, but suspect a liner may write-off the engine. Read that shimming can fix it - I can understand how that prevents the issue, but not how it can fix a broken barrel?

Not going anywhere near if its likely to be new engine time!

Cheers

Feel free to ignore this, the listing has been pulled from eBay. Probably saved me a fortune! 👍
