Does it at least turn over, or has the engine seized?

It's turns over but won't start....it's getting fuel and when I checked the spark plugs they were wet(one with gas) so I'm assuming if I change spark plugs n wires it should crank(plus they've never been changed)

Get it running first before spending money on plugs and wires. It may not run well with old plugs and wires, but they won't prevent it from starting. Remember this car could easily be done. Save your dollars to put towards the next one. If you get it running and everything is OK, then consider doing tune up and maintenance stuff.
