Thanks Bluestang

The car is pretty clean
It has a few spots where the paint is bubbling up ( probably due to poor prep ) but no areas where it has rusted through
the Interior is all dryroted
The only area of concern I have at this point is the leaf spring shackles look pretty weak

I plan to get the underside of the car Media blasted before making any further assesments

I plan to drop a 514, or 521 Crate motor in her
will probably need to put a Mustang II front suspension in to help tie the frame rails together and add subframe connecters

also probably a minitub and triangulated 4-link

As you can tell, I have a lot of work planned over the next couple of years and will appreciate any and all assistance

Thanks in advance to all

PS
I will add some Pics of her in the next week or so
