I had a 73 with rust and needing a carb and some paint. I gave it to young friend who was joining the marines so that he could rebuid the carb (a holly thank goodness) and drive it about for a while.
While he was off doing bulldog, his father took the car off to a local shop and had them replace all the rusty stuff, floors, etc for him and now the lad has a very good looking empty shell to put back together while he's home between postings elsewhere. Cost him like 11,000$ and the car is still in primer, but it's going to be a good survivor from this point because the lad will indeed complete the project.
