Actually Ken you are right it can be repaired...A body man buddy of mine said he could rebuild it for somewhere is the neighborhood of 8K and that's my price not what he would charge someone off the street. This is the guy that painted my 65 Monza Convertible Seniors car and both of my Corvettes
Then when your done you have a car with a rebuilt title and far from worth the money / time invested and then take it to DMV to get it inspected to see if it is up to standards to put back on the street legally.
I'll stand by my statement. its not rebuildable short of re-bodying.
The left side is wrinkled, the rear engine mount structure is bent and the fire wall is bent.Behind the rear seat sheet metal is bent.
I only noticed that when I removed the power train last night.
In other words its was hit so hard everything structure wise was pushed left
Now the front end is perfect if someone wanted to graft that to something else that's another story
I already found a nice little 62 Spyder convertible with a good body / bad engine and started transferring parts. It will be on the street this week.
plus the turbo engine could be rebuilt at a later date if My neighbor wants to put it back to original .
There will be lots of good 64 parts left if anyone needs something......

On the Craig's List it said:
'NO its not rebuild-able short of finding a good body to transfer every thing over too.'
I say sure it is … Back in the day when most people though more about repairing than replacing, cars with this kind of damage were repaired on a regular basis. I once repainted a nearly new Studebaker Lark roll-over that had been salvaged. The floor pan and the right quarter panel was all that was left of the original body. In the early 70s I purchased a super clean 64 Corvair 2 door sedan that had taken the same hit ,,, Just a little farther forward … so I replaced part of the front quarter panel, the 'A' pillar, the door, part of the 'B' pillar and part of the rear quarter panel and had the rocker panel straightened. I did this work in my home garage.
The first thing to do is remove the door and most of the quarter panel along with the inner panels. It is surprising how quickly one forgets how bad they looked! A little time on a frame rack and some hydraulic straightening then all that is left to do is fill up the hole with new parts.
