Pictures would be nice, how shot is body, were do you live. Mechcanicals can be rebuildt, but body work takes even more time. Need new cab, fenders, doors what. Need more info.

Oh boy man, shes pretty rough. If you wanted too restore it youd basically need new everything. My suggestion would just pull the motor find another obs ford and put it in that.
