    It worth what someone  is willing to pay for it

    I restored much worse than this.   But it takes a bit of dedication.  It looks a reasonable proposition for preservation to me, rather than dismantle it.

    Pull the spark plugs and put the mystery oil in now and let it soak until summer.

    I soaked an engine with liquid wrench then made round steel plate 1/4” thick & dropped down each cylinder.  I’d hammer on them a little each day & within a few days she was freed up.  Then took scotch bright pad to get rust off cylinder walls.

    Gee that looks to be a solid car.Shame to pull to bits.  Just fix the roof get it running and make it safe then drive it like you stole it.  There is a real movement for cars to be kept in their original condition.  I have a friend with a 29 Nash that looks to be in a similar condition and we have done thousands of miles in it picture attached
