I wouldn't put any bets on that car. It's probably gone...if not crushed.
I've sent messages to people in the thread and not heard from them. I don't know what they are realistically going for so I was hoping someone would make an offer.

Perhaps if you post some more pics of the car on both sides, front and back, you may spark more interest in it. People could then determine whether it's a builder or strictly a parts car.

If I could get any realistic gauge for what it's worth I'll just make up for sale post. I initially was hoping to get pictures sooner but just didn't make it to my parents house as soon as I'd hoped.

My 2 cents, as a wagon buyer/owner/fan:

As pictured in this thread, it is impossible to get any real idea of the condition of the floors/frame/interior.

Given it's current appearance, the main buyer is going to be somebody that wants to build a race car out of it. In my experience, people want to pay very little for this type of plan....typically $200-300.

Cleaned up, with a title, as a "project car" somewhere from the aforementioned 2-300 to MAYBE a thousand, if there's a good interior, and a drivetrain to build on.

No title, full of junk, used-up interior, crusty on the bottom.... it's crusher bait, as much as that pains me to say.

There's one locally that is $300, worth it for the front clip, but the logistics of retrieving it, storing it, and keeping the rodents out of it make it not worth it for me, I'm trying to thin the herd, not acquire more stuff

Looks like power vents, adds a little intrigue as a parts wagon, worst case scenario

I already did say the interior isn't in great shape and that the car doesn't have a drivetrain. I didn't have a lot of time when I visited last but I'm going over there soon. I'll probably clean it off and get a better look at it.

I think that would be your best bet.

Yes, I saw that. My response was a general overview of cars in that situation.
As said. to maximize selling price, a good cleaning would be the way to go.
