There was no price posted. I just can't imagine why anyone would bother even posting it.

Would be mostly good for a landscape decorator. If it was close by and was free, I would gladly haul it away.

Heck yah you can save it. Years ago a buddy and I dug a Model A out of a river bank. It wasn't until we dug it out did we find out it was a roadster. We used my buddy's daugher's "Little Red Wagon" and dragged it to our truck. If nothing else you will have story you will laugh at for years.

I am always amazed by what you can get rid of on Craig's List. People will take/buy anything.

What is the climate there?

Some soils are not very wet and the metal may not be very bad below. Try an exploratory dig to see if it is worth while.

Send it to Flop, a couple of patch panels and he'd have it looking like new.

I definately see some salvagable pieces. Upper quarter panels, header, possibly some garnish mouldings at the least. Windshield frame, upper door parts and possibly the gas tank may be usable. Doubtful the gas tank will ever hold gas, but would go a ways with a hotrodder, that only wants the outer skin. Rod

A little paint and chrome, and it'll be ready for Bonnie & Clyde II
