Slightly bent wheel

Hi, just joined and need some advice. I have been offered a cheap 2001 spider which has been kerbed hard on the passenger side. The wheel is out by about an inch. Its at auction so I cannot get it to a garage to get checked but what is the worst case senario. It still drives but pulls to the side. Thanks

Worst case?

Replace :
Lower suspension arm
arb drop link
Track control arm
steering rack
wheel itself

That's what got replaced on my car when a Ford Focus hit my front wheel in a car park.
