This car is really borderline, has rusty floors, 1 Quarter is bad. White Interior is driver cond. car runs and drives 351 W 2 bbl, top is ok and works
And the best part...cowl and shock towers are excellent.

Hey don! Dont know what car is it, fastback, coupe Or vert and here from my cell i cant search you up to see what you are talking about but think the following...

You own a car that is increasing its value day after day... It is drivable so you even can fix it without touching your mechanics...

If theres no hard to find parts missing you can state the goal of fixing the car with the mínimum budget and then, you can see what to do with it...

This is exactly the process i did in my car, did not invest more than 5k till now and the car already is a great car as it is...

Parting a car will be as bothering as restore it...you will need a lot of storage room for the parts and there's always gonna be that hard to sell stuff siting forever there...

Besides, it is a shame you destroy a posible great futura car Don!!

We will help you!!! Smile

Define "borderline".
SC "borderline" means a completely different thing from Southwestern PA "borderline"! Sounds like it's darned near a finished car as-is where I come from Smile
We revive some pretty nasty lumps of iron oxide up here.

Without seeing it and especially being a ragtop, my guess is that if the structure is solid, save that sucker.
