I feel sick for the guy too! It looked line a fine car before the accident. It reminds my of my sister coming home crying when I was in my early 20's
"I've wrecked my 72 Nova, it's bad" She wasn't hurt thank God, so we got in my car and drove into town. (The Nova had been driven to her friend's house) I still recall coming down the street and thinking..............."what's wrong with that car?" Long story short,she had lost control on a gravel road, hopped a ditch into a field, made a big U turn in some farmer's corn field and driven back to town. The front frame was bent upwards so badly on the driver's side, the driver's side tire was barely touching the ground! Dad and I stripped it down (all the damage was cowl forward) new front frame, fenders, hood, grill, etc, painted the whole car and all aligned properly, and drove great.
This car definitely is a hard fix. I'm hoping its rebuilt. It is hard to see a 69 bent. Jim
