This first-generation hardtop could be a good starter car. Although there is some spooky looking bodywork on this rear quarter-panel, a good body repair person could have this panel repaired and looking straight in no time. Replacement of this panel isn't a simple bolt-on affair like it is for a front fender-panel. The new part would need to be welded into position after the old sheetmetal was removed. A new panel, along with its installation, would be more costly than a repair and might not be justified for this car.
