Default '74 SD Trans Am body

I was approached today and asked if I had an interest in a '74 SD TA. No motor, trans, interior is very rough and the body......well, it has some major rust issues. It's been in his yard for approx. 30 years. What would something like this be worth? I'll be honest, it's not something I have an interest in but I told the guy I would get a rough idea of maybe what it's worth.

Without the original drivetrain I wouldn't think its worth much more than any other 74 trans am, or for that matter any rusty trans am body. 74 SD's are getting pretty good money, but that's for cars this one will never be. Would really need to see how rusty it really is, but if its the typical partial floor, and a patch or two I personally wouldn't spend more than about 3k for it, and that is only because it is a SD.

There are quite a few blocks that have gotten separated from the original bodies. I have two that I've owned for 25 - 30 years. One of my blocks belongs to a car listed in the registry, but I haven't been able to get any details on it.

That would be great if the original motor could be found. I know my neighbor has a super duty block in his garage as well. What would the value of a block be? He died a few years ago and I know his wife will get rid of stuff at some point. He had tons of motor parts.

Interesting.

A friend of mine owned a '74 SD that was only a rough body as well. He sold it a while back, but not 30 years ago. He has been trying to locate where it is now.

Talked to the guy last week with no progress. He has so much junk piled on top but he did open the trunk for some reason. I'm working on the guy.
