I don't think there is a single salvageable part on her. The seats are gone, floor boards rotted all away, and no dashboard.

I should go back up there and get the engine out, bring it home, strip it down, clean it and make it run again. Just for ***** and giggles.

im sure there is more than you think, the panels arent that bad, buick only port holes, bumpers, all the engine bits, if you were missing those on your resto they would be worth alot to you

If you were doing a 50'* tribute custom there is all king of cool goodies to cut off that old boat and still have enough scrap metal to make three or four new Hondas
