Figure 20-25,000+ to have Vintage Customs restore it for you.
Gprocket has someone he works with who seems to do beautiful work from the pictures.
You won't get many shops to undertake this.
You, most likely, won't get a price you can hang your hat on, and be able to hold someone to.
You have to have an open pocket book.
When you start spending you will get hooked and be so into it that then you can't stop.
Many of us have been into this, this way.
There is a lot of bondo under nice looking paint out there. Then it starts to rust bubble.
You will find many, many people get into these projects and the money gets, well, awful. Remember time IS money. Then they give up.
So you better have a lot of money (relative), time, or both, and love your car.
If you don't love this car, find another.
As always, it's advice, and free, but the collective contributors on this thread have a lot of experience in this, so you might want to listen. And the people contributing are very good people.
Also, look at it maybe as a hobby. There are worse things to throw money at, bar tabs, women and gambling. Your car can only hurt you nonverbally, your pocketbook, in an accident, not running the way you want, getting all your work hit, dinged, stolen, you get the idea.
