floor is still intact no body rust im well pleased with it
Im going to restore it back to it orginal condition and make it all standard it hasnt really been messed with but when i bought it the thing wopuld not start

That car is a very good choice.
Looks the part.
Dont go too far with modifying it.
One thing i can suggest is a full stainless steel exhaust in the original design not a loud sporty version.
Fill the sills etc with waxoyl and washout the wheel arches and paint in black hammerite/waxoyl rust preserver.
Make sure you get any welding done before you use the waxoyl as it will catch fire.
