Found one of these a few years ago in a junk yard. The only thing worth saving was the rood as the rest was left to rust beyond saving. We went over it all and it was a shame but nothing was left to save.

How hard would it be to build one from scratch btw?

It is not how hard but how much.

Depending on what you had to start with and what you could salvage would dictate the amount of work it would take to save a car like this.

Even this cars value would pale to the time and money even if you did it yourself. Many of the detail parts would be a killer to find and remake on your own since no one really make repo parts for much of this car.

If it is anything I have a NOS vanity mirror for one.

I met a Canadian last year that had two of these and he relayed the cost of restoration on cars that were in pretty good shape.

The one we found you could not save enough for a custom car as it sat too long and pretty much rusted over the frame and into the ground. The windows were out and not much was left inside either.
