new, lookin to buy. 1948 chev pu?

hey guys im new to the hotrod thing but jeez i love the style and everything about it.
so ive been looking locally for older cars i can buy and came across a 1948 chev pickup.

just wondering if this is a good rig to start hotrodding on?
its got a chevy 350 and 400transmission
73 camaro subframe.

the windows are all plexi and rattle like crazy.. one of the windsheild windows is cracked.
the front shocks are shot it needs new ones.
doesnt have any door handles he uses a pair of vise grips.

anyways just wondering shoudl i go ahead and sell my 95 camaro to buy this hotrod for $4500 or shoudl i just keep looking?

how hard would it be to find parts for this rig? like the glass and the window levers.

what do you think should i go for it or keep looking?

i dont have time to do an engine swap which is what makes this one so appealing its already got the drivetrain i woudl want.
