Thinking about grabbing this but need advice

I need some advice from you guys who already own something this old.

How good are you at welding and body work? He states floors will need work. I would be prepared to have the entire floor plan replaced if you go look at it. Looks like it's been sitting a long time. You will most likely need to go through the motor as well as blow out/ replace all the brake and fuel lines. The interior looks decent and like it mike clean up ok until you get around to replacing it.

Overall 1500.00 isn't bad as long as you realize that a full blown restoration project to make it road worthy and safe again.

You will probably be putting in lower quarters and replacing the bottom 3 - 6 inches of the doors as well. You also need to check the cowl very carefully to ensure it is not rusted. Probably worth crawling under and making sure the torque boxes are not rusted out.

Aside from that you are looking at need to redo a bunch of the wiring in the engine bay, new radiator, all new accessories on the engine, and probably a total suspension rebuild because all of the bushings will be shot.

Probably need a new dash, headliner, carpet, door panels, and seat covers.

Just to get it drivable again your $1500 will turn into 7-10K pretty quick, and that doesn't include the body work or paint.
