Most of the parts/trim seem to be there.  It has some rust in the floors, most of the motor is there, but we haven't found the carburetor.  No major body damage, just a bump in the back under the bumper.  The trunk doesn't look too bad as far as rust.  I haven't noticed any rust holes there.  The dash is basically complete, convertible top motors are even there!  I'm not saying they work, but they are there.

All upholstery (door panels, seats, carpet, convertible top) is either too far gone for restoration, or just plain gone.  The car rolls, it steers, unsure of brakes.  Obviously it doesnt run but that needs to be said.  The entire grill/headlights are close to mint condition, I think.  The trim pieces have either tiny bends or dents in them (easily repairable).
