    Ive spent most of my life trying to save cars no one else would...sometimes sucessfully, once in a while not...would need more pics to decide on this one but body looks pretty good and its got that vista roof...if everything was there under the hood it looks like the interior would be the worst part...if i had to take a poll right now i would vote save it...

    Honestly up top I have seen a hell of a lot worse. I would want to see the tailgate and rear wheel area plus frame to get a true idea of how saveable it is.

    Let's also not forget that guys who can fabricate sheet metal have way more opportunities than those of us who have to scrounge for western sheet metal from parts cars.

    I guess Jaunty and I are spoiled being in the Southwest. Were I still in Chicago I could see potential here. And good points have been made about saving it. However I guess from where I am geographically, and age wise. I’d agree with Jaunty. Can be saved, but not by me or my wallet. Lol

    Well, all the glass and chrome seem to be present. From here the posts and roof looks good. But it has been parked for 30 years, the floor and maybe the frame is probably gone?

    That close to the ground, almost a sure bet.
