Yep, that Delta bandsaw is a steal as long as its all there and there are no broken castings. And don’t worry about a fence. If you really want one you can find one to fit easily. I haven’t had a bandsaw fence on my 14” Walker Turner from the 1940s for 50 years and haven’t ever missed it.

Polish that thing up, repaint it with some matching gray enamel and you will have a jewel! I have a 1940s Delta 12” wood lathe and a 1940s Delta 4×36 floor mounted belt sander. They look like new and I wouldn’t trade them for anything.
