Looks to be a 78-79 1200 (not a CVCC). Rust was never kind to these cars. There was a NHTSA safety recall for the 1st Gens (1973-79) due to rust of the front suspension attachments and components. Based on the multitude of parts cars I have purchased, I would be surprised if the front crossmember (unobtainium, except for the three in my basement) is still usable. Cool, but sadly most likely a parts car at best.

That rear suspension looks beyond shot

Good call! The driver's side rear tow-in is awkward.

Looks like pan hard bar rusted off and the rear axle is falling off.
