Red face 1967 Mecerdes 20* SL in rough shape need advice

So, my sister in law's husband recently passed away and left a LOT of lose ends for her to deal with. One of these is a 1967 Mercedes he had shipped over to the states from England. This was back in the 70s. It was used as a daily driver and then occasional driver for many years until maybe the mid to late 1980s.

After some health issue and other things, the car was parked in a garage and left for many years. No work was done to help maintain it it and was left in the garage. It is a mess right now and I am trying to get pictures and get them posted so I can try and sell it.

I don't know if the car is worth restoring, or if it is better that it be used for it's parts and maybe the motor.

I am looking for any advice or direction as to what to do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Everyone is always looking for a cheap pagoda. Surely there are several her that could be interested in buying it at the right price. The larger the venue on which you sell it, the larger the final sale price in most cases. Surely both buyers and sellers will get stars in their eyes.
