Looks like a decent roller and solid base for a restoration. Needs reassembly and some patching. Not sure about the price, it kind of depends on who complete it is. If complete it could be worth it.

Good 2dr trim is really hard to find. Without it, I would have no interest in the car at all. Also, that rear window is pretty much impossible to obtain too. What's up with the roof near the missing rear window? Something really funky going on there.

I didn't even look that close... its got a sedan roof welded on top of it!...

And it looks like they simply "angled" up the roof to get it to fit the higher bubble top roof... Your better off turning this into a permanent convertible. Its insane.

its totally fed up... Dude that car is a nightmare for someone. also notice the front windshield doesnt fit... I guess it comes with a flat windshield? maybe have to modify the bubble top once you buy one... yikes.. run! I mean wtf...
