The title would have some value in itself... is there a title? Otherwise, I agree it can be saved, however it needs a friend with a lot of skills. Sounds like it doesn't scare you, make an offer you can live with. Worst the owner can say is no.

They look pretty nice in the pics. Are you sure they are Nomad? They could be 2dr wagon and would be close but there will still be issues at the beltline. Based on the trim markings my guess is they are 2dr wagon.

At the very least they could be off a 210 wagon. The photos don't show any door jamb and no upper attachment points. The nomad project showed the original quarter had been removed to save all the full skin, as if they were going to be used an a better project.

These are a start, but still not a 100% replacement the project will need.

I am not afraid to tackle the car, as you can see in my sedan. However, it was in much nicer shape, I did replace some of the sheetmetal just because i wanted it as close to perfect as i could get.

I would definitely be interested in the quarterpanels first, before i dealt on the car. i can get the car VERY reasonably. I am going up to do an inventory, and haggle as soon as he gets a new title. His home burned down and the title was in the house.

I don't mind the work.

John, I'm chiming in late on this, and sure you're aware of the issue, but do make sure of the condition of the roof just above the drip rail. The quarter panel area is an obvious issue as has been discussed. Rust in the lower area around the perimeter of the roof starts from the inside, often towards the rear, and is plain miserable to address from inside where it begins. Just understand what the condition of it is as you're assessing your potential project, as well as your offer to buy. JR

Pretty rough, from what I can see. Do you think they are salvageable?

I know Dave wasn't directing that question at me - if he was I would reply that nearly anything is salvageable given enough time and money - but of course the nub of the issue is 'is it worth it?' - but I was actually thinking about those quarter photos last evening as I was (endlessly) block sanding on my front fenders (what an exciting life I lead....). I was reflecting how fortunate I am that the 'tough' areas of my Nomad are as sound as they are. As I plug onward in time and money on my project, I'm constantly reminded of the extra parts and labor specific to building a Nomad that are required - and summarily, how important it is to start with as sound and as complete a foundation as one can. Is there an inventory of all the stainless and other specific parts? I got burned a little there. Is the liftgate restorable? I am sure I look at this from a talent perspective much less capable than John - and I totally get the lure of a great challenge. But with the added difficulties and costs pre-baked into a Nomad (or convertible) project, and not knowing what the price of that one is, my friendly suggestion would be surely there's another one out there that is more worthy of your time, effort and money. Just my 2 cents worth. Good luck with either choice. JR
