1968 1600 Needs completion - very solid

I have a 1968 1600. The car was purchased nearly four years ago and she has been sitting since in my heated garage. Instead of getting the mechanicals all taken of care, I got into the bodywork. Never done body work before. Stripped to the bare metal and attempted some filler work. She sits currently in primer. She was originally Manilla.

The car has a fantastic interior and Wed 2 piece wheels (15x7s). Since it was manufactured in 67, it came standard with Euro turn signals.

The car needs some simple maintenance to get her running. She ran when I parked her in 11/2008. Was started on and off for a few years but the battery died and has been started in 2 years. Car is pretty solid with only a few rust areas (spare tire, front valence, some on the door). Was a California car. I am in MN but as I said, it has been stored the entire time it has resided here.

This is how she looked when I got her:


I would prefer to sell this to someone that would complete the project but I am willing to part this out. Has flares and front spoiler, upgraded stereo (at the time), custom interior with 320 seats redone, Momo steering wheel, Weds 15x7 (ET15 I think) with Kumho 205/15-50 (85% tread).

She would need to be towed.

I would love to finish this car but I have to be realistic. With another baby coming in a month, this is just going to sit and it is a shame.

Contact me if you are interested in the whole car or if I get enough parts requests, I will consider parting her out. I will let this go cheaply; the wife wants the 3rd stall back.

I am thinking $1500 because of the wheels and interior, but open to offers.

The passenger side front fender either needs to be replaced or have a ton of work done on it. The hood has some small dents in it (see pic).

If you are seriously interested, I can take pictures of anything you would like. I want you to know exactly what you are dealing with, no surprises. I just have to move some stuff in the garage to get better access to her.
