I looked at the pics you posted and my 2001 that is heading to the scrap yard is in the same condition. Just being realistic but you have some bad rust, lost the rocker cover and some large holes over the rear wheel. If it is structurally sound then great but can you jack the rear up without the jack crushing the steel rocker sections? That is why my 2001 is going to be scrapped.



You can ask $1500 but you will be lucky to get over $500. The real question is how the underside looks, any holes in the floor? Do you have inspections in your area?

This one still on the road, 6 years later. Way too much work to do that again for this old coot. Foamed the rocker area, spray stuff all under, and Bondo and glass cloth to patch the dog leg hole.
