Hello, I have a dilemma. Went and looked at a 41 120 motor runs, new brakes, front disc conversion, only missing 1 120 emblem all other chrome and stainless is there interior is toast (not a big deal) the problem is the rockers are bad as well as the trunk, and up into the rear wheel arches also rear wheel wells are bad. is this worth saving? The car is on seattle craigslist listed for $ got him down to $2100. Does any know of a good donor body just in case I decide to pull the trigger. It would probally be easier to swap everything on to another body.

I've seen this car as well on Craigslist and had the guy send me some pictures. The motor was running before he got it, but he hasn't run it since due to needing to replace the wiring harness, gas tank, and fuel pump.

The interior looks like some rodents tore the place apart. I don't anything about restoring upholstery so I'm not sure how difficult or expensive that would be.

The biggest concern for me would be the rust in the trunk. It's really bad....most of the outer edge of the trunk floor is completely gone all the way around to the wheel wells. There are huge holes all over the trunk. I don't know if the floor pans would be the same. Are there any replacement trunk floors available, or would a repair like that be a complete fabrication job?

I initially was excited about checking out this car, but I'm worried that this one would be way out of my league.
