hard to say on the pics...I think I see evidence of rust.....and or crappy fiberglass/bondo repair.

looks straight.

inside looks filthy and would bet smells of mold/mildew.

check with repair places before beleiving a clutch job price quoted by a seller.

only way to tell aboput the rust is to go see it or have someone see it for you

 yea the only to know is to go to it. It might be worth the trip. I saw the "head cap"Huh  I figured an eagle owner might chime in

 I wonder how much a clutch, P.P. and T.O.B. is now. I can put it in Or it could have snapped the input shaft   

 Where are you golden bus  Looks better than this one

Looks like they basically stripped out seats and put in their interior, if you want to call it that. The original Eagle windows are still in it. I bet there were no repairs to corrosion.

I wouldn't touch it without personal inspection, including driving it, and without a clutch, it's gonna be kind of iffy driving it.
