I guess a question I would ask is where has it been parked for the last 20 years. If it has been outside for 20 years then I think it's not worth having. It will be a mess. Look for rust on the rockers, doors, under front and rear windshields, under carpets, under trunk mat, etc. The front windshield on the interior should have wood surrounding it 360 degrees. What is the condition of the wood? If it's good that's a plus. What is your budget for acquisition, and then eventual repair? And where are you located?
