Can’t give you a price as I’ve never bought one that bad unless I’m going to break it.Would imagine there must be other rot that you have not yet spotted ie floor.suspension mounts,bottom of front wings...it goes on.Try and get some pictures up and someone will be along to give you some answers.

If your ok with a mig welder and have patience it won't be as daunting as you might think, the biggest thing you'll need is a suitable place that's sheltered from the elements because we all know how the weather can change. Your time is your biggest cost so if you have the two you'll get there don't rush, sorry if it sounds like I'm talking down to you its just when you look on places like eBay you read listings of abandoned projects with "lost interest " or "too many projects". Try and set yourself a realistic time to work within
