Have you been under the car with a flashlight? I found a 65 lemans convertible last week that I could have purchased for under 5K which was a nice 10 footer. When I placed the car on a lift I found the trunk, the floor pans, the frame, the trunk filler panels, all body braces, both outer wheelhouses, both front fenders, both quarters and both rockers were rusted and needed to be replaced.
The guy claimed the car had a frame off in the 90s before his purchase and the car had been kept in his garage since then. The engine and transmission were both leaking and he claimed they were both rebuilt during the frame off and that he had only driven the car 15k miles. There was also a ton of bondo in the front fenders from an accident.
If you inspect the car and only find a few of the issues I listed above then the car may be worth $4K.
BTW, welcome to the forum,
