Yikes, that's a project right there! For starters, how about putting your location in your profile so we know what area of the country prospective parts might be good for you.

Welcome and Regards,

Bob

i think you need a different body! you could pick up a solid car that has a almost perfect body for what your about to put into that one!

I have a pair of doors and fenders that I will let go as a package deal. If you are near the Georgia area, or willing to drive, I will gladly work you a deal. Wouldn't be able to help with the quarters though.

Mike is a good person to deal with.I bought the headlight assemblies from him and i am more then pleased with them so i dont think he would do you over cause the cougar community here is a tight nit bunch of enthusiasts.

I would get a different car if I was you... you can get a better shell and put your interior and motor in it. That body looks like it doesn't have a single good panel on it and probably has a very tweaked structure. Some cars are not worth the cost / effort to save when they're that beat up.

How long has it been sitting in the WEEDS, not ever a good thing for the under carriage, EVER.

Photo's of the other side, front, and rear would be helpful also.

Maybe it won't look so bad once the waffled metal is all taken off? First thought that comes to mind is what are the condition of the parts that this waffled metal attaches to?

Fingers crossed for you!

I think all these replies have depressed our new friend from West Virginia!

One look at that photo however made me think... the comment "great interior, great engine, just needs body" is about as optimistic as one could get....

If that were my car and it had a nice body, I'd be sick right about now, crying myself to sleep.

Bob is right. Remove as much of the dinged up metal as you can unbolt, and then see what you got.
There's a guy in Greenville SC here on the forum who has a 70 he's parting out. You could get his unibody.
