good luck on this one mate! I purchased mine in a similar state, and went straight toward working on a roadworthy. My advice is expect to turn every bolt, even if you don't plan a FULL restoration, it will ultimately happen. I've had my car registered for about 6 months and this is now the 3rd motor it will have had in that time (finally decided to rebuild one properly). 

Initially, i dropped around 8k to fix the essential to pass a RWC, that was including things like rust repairs, brake work, tyres, exhaust, rego costs and general fixing up and a bit of love EVERY DAY. It will consume you and your bank account, but it's a heck of a load of fun :)

Thanks Sandy,

Good to know a rough figure on costs to get it to a roadworthy state - as I read on another post, I expect my wallet will be on a rapid weight loss program!
