there are several bench tests you can do such as testing the rectifier diodes (requires disassembly) voltage test with a hand held drill, and etc. they have detailed tests in the factory service manual and maybe later i upload them in a zip file

oh, i forgot to mention that if the charger light in the instrument panel (the battery icon) if that is open, then current cannot get to the generator to tell it to charge. you can test it manually by giving B+ to the proper wire terminal when the engine is running.
with the key set to ON, without the engine running you should see the battery icon light. if it does not, there is something open between the bulb and the generator terminal.

that thing is in such bad shape. i would not want to drive something like that. at least the wheels look cool. are there holes in the floor pan ? you should cut a coil on the front and rear to bring the ride height down. looks like it has a 2 inch lift kit installed.
i've seen cars like that literally in the junk yard, in better shape. i guess you have to get what you can budget. the yellow fuse (60A) is the one to check for open as it connects to the starter. the 70A connects battery pos. to the rest of the electrical circuits.
not sure if electrical is your strong point but in steps to test your alt is to bench test it, hook up battery voltage to pins 2 and 3, crank it with a drill and check the output voltage of the output. also ground the case too.
as you can see from cell 30 electrical diagram you're going to want to see B+ at pins 2 and 3 on the plug to the alt while key is ON
