I've had this parts rig for a year. Was originally parted out a few years ago in Houston. I hate to let it rot sitting outside. I robbed the rear quarter and surface rust is building on the exposed metal. Still salvageable if you can do a quarter. Also has a dent on the wiper valance on the passenger side. Also a small dent on the corner of the left rear quarter. The roof needs to be spot welded on the back corner and caulked again. The rain gutter has a few spots that need repair, but it's only the outer flange area which can be accessed. The frame is solid (it looks bad due to the surface rust). The only cancer is the rear section (see pics), but it's not all the way through. That can be fixed and then a POR15 job and the frame will be ready. All the normal areas (wheel wells and side areas under the doors) are solid. I'm not sure of the value, but have seen threads discussing a thousand (ish) for a good body and the same for a frame. I realize this body needs repair and shipping would be a cost. My thought is if someone can pay $1,000, then I'll sell it. Also, I have the title, but it's still in the last owners name as I had no intent of building it. My son wants us to keep it for when he smashes any of his 60 wheeling. i want to keep the axels or at least the pumpkins (456 gears) and wheels, so I would have to figure out how to roll it. Let me know if there is any interest or questions. Thanks.
