'81 in Fort Lauderdale

Hi, I just bought the '81 that was used in a movie filmed here in South Florida, "Finding Joy". It sat outside since the filming ended in 2011 so needs some work. Has some body rust but nothing some fabrication and welding won't fix. It's mostly around the rear wheels. Looks to have about 119K miles. The worst part of the car is that it was painted with three colors of blue latex house paint. I've started stripping it off back to the dark moonlight blue original. Interior is salvageable except for the carpets. Interior is dark and light blue. Runs well and has an Edelbrock 4 bbl manifold and carb on the 360. I do need a front driveshaft though if anyone has one for sale, let me know. Otherwise it's eBay.

I'll try to post some pics either here or in the general discussion section this weekend. Wish me luck!
