These cars are hot at the moment..at $26k it can be a great deal if all is ok...
That car will need a full paint job that will probably include new seals and gaskets..so factor $8-15k if not doing it personally..

If a rebuilt on engine and tranny is needed factor in $8k-18k depending on who is doing the work and parts needed..

Suspension will need a refresh...struts,shocks and bushings to say the least..$1.5k-3k...depending who is doing the work..

Interior and miscellaneous .....$1-3k

So plan on throwing around $36k+ on top of the $26k...so for a total of around $66k you can have a beautiful looking 77 that can still be worth $80k+ by the time you get done....so yes it is worth it at $26k..just my two centavos(.02)
