Like you said, Dennis, the car looks rust-free and straight, but 
there's a lot of work there still. The interior is a disaster, and 
the engine will need a carb-ectomy. That center-mounted carb has got 
to go. Those were just terrible. 

The black bumpers aren't too bad: At least they match.

I'm afraid most people buy a car based on how it looks, so if you get 
this up and running nicely, which I'm sure you can do pretty easily, 
it still won't sell unless it also looks decent. Do you have any 
spare parts, like seats, dash, vinyl panels, etc from your other '72
that would fit in there? (Seats and carpet changed in mid-72, so if 
your parts car was an early '72 it would make a good donor.)

I've got much of what you might need up here, but I don't know how I 
could get it to you, unless you were willing to drive up and get it. 
There are probably lots of closer places that would also have those
