fully restored it's worth at collectorcarmarket.com $23,350. You have to figure out what you paid plus what you have to put into it and how you feel about it as to whether to start this project.

From my pictures... is this car worth restoring...? Or at least get running....?
First hurdle.... parts..? Where can I get a radiator for this car....? Would like something that just bolts in...... and I can’t seem to find anything....
Second ... thinking of doing an engine swap.... to a newer 389....?
For a 11 bolt style water pump/timing cover....?
Then I can add a pulley kit with air....... 4bbl intake and carb (or fuel injection)..........
Any suggestions on this.....??
Thank you

If you are doing the labor a maybe if you are paying someone to do it you will lose money on the process.

It depends on what part you are referring to. The supplier of the particular part you are interested will know whether the part is interchangeable.
