This car looks like it has lots of potential, but I would be loath to put a price on her without seeing under the carpet and inside the trunk.  Those are two areas where the rust can get get pretty bad.  If there's no rust in those places, I don't think I would pay much more than $1500 for her in current condition.  Maybe closer to $2500 if she were running.  The creases in the front bumper worry me a bit.  Of course, I'm not in the market for another fixer-upper right now, so my valuations might be a bit off.

That silver paint looks like a fantastic color, though.  This car is complete enough that I think she's worth restoring, barring some disastrous amount of hidden rust in the frame rails.
