1973 NOS quarters are akin to hens teeth. I've seen very few for sale in the 25 years I have bought sold and traded these cars.

You did very well, but your results are not normal, and they are typically much more.

This reminds me of the can am I loved (mentor had it when I was in high school) and after I bought it I had to scrap the body. Just too much rust and no parts.

When the body shop making money off of you asks why you are doing this you tend to re-evaluate

Just because we're all here, and seems like a good time, I'd be more than willing to pay $1500-$2000 for a NOS drivers side big window quarter. You know, just in case anyone wants to part with theirs.

The passenger side I picked up was $750, but that was 10 years ago.

We had a 73 LeMans very similar to this car purchased used in the early 80's. An Iowa car, it was starting to rust in similar locations as this one. Took it to a bodyman to have them repair the rust / repaint. They told us that it couldn't be saved based on the design of the sheet metal, it trapped moisture / salt in all the wrong places. This one appears to be much worse shape than the one we had, both inner / outer rear quarter panels and trunk pan most likely need to be replaced.

Would be a great job for a skilled bodyman with a lot of spare time and patience to buy. Hope someone with these skills buys the car and restores it.

The trunk pan appears repairable. It will definitely need outer wheelhouses, front fenders, and quarters. It's worth saving, but it's a rot box for sure...
