Here's the parts run down:

P&J 32 chassis - straight axle/4 link
Ford 9"
4W discs - all plumbed
Heritage body W/ two firewalls - no fenders
Lokar shifter
Hard top
windshield frame & glass
headlights
SS Grille
gauges/steering wheel
32 gas tank & rails
trim parts
cheap wheels/tires
chrome hair pins
walker radiator W/ fan
Headers w/ side exhausts

What it needs:
Motor/trans/driveshaft
interior
paint
assembly
I'm not going to guess at a value - my concerns would be the Heritage body. Some of them are OK and some are not OK in that they need a LOT of work. Take a real good look at body trueness, especially at the cowl, high and low areas, door and trunk lid fits and how well the reinforcing plywood has been installed. The rest of the items, they are probably going to be fine or can be upgraded easily if not to your satisfaction. The P&J frame is usually a good one, especially if they used ASC rails, their usual standard, instead of a welded up 3 or 4 piece assembly.
