How would you deal with this one? There's value in originality but with the condition, as soon as you start working on it you'll end up with a full restoration.

Just get it driving and running well and leave the rest alone, let it rust?

It took me a number of years to learn this, but "Yes," drive it on nice days and try not to go out in the rain much, never wash the car with the hose, and just drive it and enjoy it for what it is. As they say, they're only original once and sometimes it's nice just to appreciate that, like a fine vintage bottle of wine or an antique.

From ad: ..."original wheels and still have original spare wheel with factory radial tire in trunk along with jack."

Anyone whose 1965 Mustang originally came with radial tires, please raise your hand? I'll wait.........................

And driven only 600 miles since 1979 (39 years), you'd spend thousands of dollars just to make it roadworthy.

On a positive note, from the photos it looks like it might have disc brakes (has disc brake pedal pad).
