70 camaro needs needs new pans, some pics

I am very excited, found a 70 Camaro, 2000 bucks, doesn't run, needs new front floor pans and trunk part of the trunk pan. Actual description follows:

COMPLETE PROJECT. NEEDS LOTS. WILL NEED AT LEAST FRONT FLOOR PANS AND PART OF REAR TRUNK FLOOR. POWER STEERING AND BRAKES . 4SPD . 10 BOLT. LIKE NEW BFGS IN REAR. REAR SPOILER. BEEN OFF ROAD FOR YEARS. THIS IS A NON RUNNING CAR .

My BIG question is how much do new floor pans cost? Can I do it myself with redneck power, and a welder? If the cost is insane I can't buy this car, if not I need to get a move on it now, i.e. I've been looking for 70 Camaro for 6 months in my area and haven't found jack till now. Oh and it's a Muncie 4 speed.

If the floor pans and truck are rusted i'd be suspect of other parts as well.
I have a '70 with solid floors and trunk, but rusty everything else.

My advise is to take a real good look at everything else if you haven't already (check the radiator support. - mine was a toast) and bring a magnet to find bondo (I think mine is sculpted from it ).

Check out www.yearone.com and www.goodmarkindustries.com, they should have all the parts. Year one iskinda pricey but it'll get a ballpark.

Otherwise anything could be done with a little patience!

not sure if the motor turns over or not, betting it doesn't, but I'm going to pull the 350 I just put in my trans am. The car has been sitting for several years, drag car project that never got off the ground. Hoping it was stored in a barn, garage, inside anything. After I pull the 350 I'll sell the trans am. I'll probably either get a beater in the mean time, or tough it out on my 18 speed. It's still a bit rainy though.
Can I being an idiot, do the pans myself? What will I need? The whole deal with this is I was looking for a parts car that had a muncie 4 speed so I could put it in my trans am, then I ran across this and I thought this car is almost my dream car. So why not get this and sell the trans am.
I am also going to try to talk this guy down as much as possible. What's reasonable? I know that's hard to answer and very subjective.

That looks like a great project. I sent you a PM with a source of information on your car.

Does it have a numbers-matching motor?? What trim level is it (Z28, SS, LT, etc.)??

these are pics of my floor. i bought 2 full floor pans for 140 a side from ricks camaro in athens ga. i droped them in and traced them with a grease pen i cut about an inch and a half lower and tack welded them in and welded all around. i supported the car on jack stands. and the door gaps were close befor. after i welded them in and sat the car on all fours the gaps were perfect! i picked up a miller matic welder for 175 dollars at a pawn shop it looked new! i was a body man for 11 years but its been that long since i practiced my trade. i love body work and decided its time for me to have some toys. good luck on your project!

The nice thing about floorpans is unless you are building a show queen you can weld them in and in the process learn enough to have some skills when it comes time to do quarter panels and such. I had never done any body welding when I started on my truck resto, and besides the extra time I spent running the grinder due to my amateur welding, it turned out great.
