Should I refurb these retro cabinets or buy new?

So, I'm buying this house from my fiance's best man soon. The kitchen is pretty retro, with these metal Ampco cabinets and a porcelain sink and I'm finding myself a little nervous about it!

Ideally I'd like to replace them with wood cabinets (and DEFINITELY new countertops), since I really want a dishwasher. However, finances are the first priority. I don't necessarily HATE them, I kind of like the storage above the sink. But I really do want a dishwasher.

(Note: The stove in the photos will be moving to the other wall of the kitchen, and the refrigerator will go where the stove presently is.)

I'd love ideas!
