Sad but repairable.
Painful to look at.

the most obvious is to take the opportunity to restore the car completely.

About twenty years ago I met a gentleman who had a beautiful 1967 Giulia Sprint GTV in moss green.
He had the garage in a condominium tunnel. One day, a stream that flows under the land in the surrounding area, due to the abundant rains, overflowed and flooded all the garages in the condominium. Not much mud but serious damage to everything that was deposited in the pits.
The GTV moved about half a meter without hitting anything! The problem was that the water had slipped everywhere obviously ...
He did not lose heart and dried it, took it all apart, piece by piece, revised everything that was possible. It took about 6/7 years. Unfortunately, even today, he finds mud dust in the instruments, on the seats, on the carpets, on the floor of the garage ...

The only thing worse would be salt water flooding.

It’s a race car. Way easier than a street car….

Surely if stripped to a shell and restored it is?

Every nook and cranny and box section will have the silt that is in the passenger/driver pit... yet it can be raced but there is pie crust in every cavity I could never pass off. Every single component from a wiper motor to a light bulb will have to be replaced which means sourcing every electrical and moving part and every bearing that ever spun.
