If the vin and the cowl tag are gone, what good is it? I don't see one usable panel on that car. If it had a vin tag and you could use the firewall to graft another car to then maybe. This is a boat anchor! IMHO
Drivers door and rear quarter don't look too bad :)
which part did you like best?   the rusted out wheelwell lip, or the huge dents running from one end to the other?  :)
I bet a metal recycler would love it.. :)

Am I missing something? Why do cars like this go for the prices they do? What possibly could be usable? At least this had springs and exhaust hangers. Scrap for cars, here in Ohio is about $250 a ton. A bare body like this is about 600 lbs. That comes to around $75. A guy I know, here, where I live, bought a 6cyl. coupe to make a pro-touring car. He bought a Dynacorn body and stripped this car completely including VIN. The tail panel and 1/4s where already cut off when he got the car the rest was pure rust and not one iota usable. I thought there might be something I could use for my upcoming body work, so I looked at it. It was worse than this eBay car and he told me he wanted $700 for it. Needless to say, it is still sitting at his house.

Here's one that I scrapped. At first I kicked myself for not cutting the roof off and saving it. But I felt lucky about selling the driver side hinge pillar for $300. Anyway it's gone and it won't end up on ebay. I may have kept the cowl tag section and VIN plate though (V8 car). ;D
