Is there such a thing as too far gone?

Spotted this little guy about 2 hours from where I live while exploring. Owner wasn't home so this was the only photo I got for now.

What would be some of your breaking points when considering restoring one of these (I assume for some of you the answer is no such thing). Definitely some rust and missing a tailgate.

I have never restored a vehicle before, but have been looking for a new hobby.

With a talented enough body man, any sheetmetal can be replaced. How much money you got?:lol:

OTOH, rubber parts you are pretty much sh!t out of luck on unless their is a repro sitting around. Still a pretty chunk of change if you can get them(fixed window $400, wing window $350, cargo windows $200, etc)

Drivetrain parts are FJ40 interchangeable so no issues there.
