I would want to see the before body paint pictures. Rear frame looks like it needs attention. Rough surface rust on frame and under body items. Looks like black rocker guard spray on some areas on the frame.

If you can, pull the interior rear side panels and look at the inside of the quarters.

Hard to say on price, 60's are crazy and all over the place!
