Love the looks of the car. I have the next gen, a 200. (1966)
But, I will tell you. Mine is much more complete and I am getting killed on little bits and pieces. I can see a few pieces already missing. Almost everything can be gotten.... At a price. Contact a parts place and see what the obvious pieces cost.
Also, is this a cast iron head? If it is aluminum. Check the radiator fluid. If it has not been kept up, then aluminum head will be bad. Check the water pump housing with the hose off and see if there is evidence of corrosion.
These cars are great. They can be restored easily, but the cost will probably exceed the value of the completed car. Just a caveat. If you are buying to enjoy, go for it.
