I found this on Craigslist in LA.
It is very rough, ..., but could be a good starting point for someone who likes finish work.

Hopefully putting this in the right place on the forum. It is a bit odd that all the cars for sale are scattered thru out the forum. It would be good to have a Car for sale section. The classified states parts....
