Mine, too. Bought it more for parting out as the only sheet metal that wasn't rusted thru was the hood.

You guys are making me feel pretty good! Mine sat for 10 years under a tree, in Michigan.

I have been able to get a good cowl panel from California, rear and opera windows will need to be made by my body guy.

That's pretty darn clean for being in Michigan. My first Laguna was originally from New York. When I bought it back in 1988 like the photo shows it was in really rough condition. All the floorboards were rotted as well as the trunk and roof. I did what I could with the budget I had right outta high school which wasn't much. But going from my 77 Malibu to that felt like a huge upgrade since it was fully loaded. I ended up selling it for 3 times what I paid for it 5 years later and got another 76 Laguna with very little rust that was originally a Texas car. This one I kick my self for selling. Anyways, looks like you've got a great foundation to work with on your car.

I was happy to find it in as good of condition as I did. It is originally a California Car, right down to all of the original smog stuff still on the car. It was in Michigan for over 15 years when I bought it, but had sat for 10 of those years. The engine is pretty whipped and in need of a rebuild so it will be pulled and most likely take up spaced in my shop. I have a 383 ready to assemble, but my son is pushing me towards an LS swap - no matter what I do I will keep the original engine and trans to go with the car if I ever sell it. The body is solid except around the windows so my first priority will be getting the body work done, I can add mechanical after that.
