I wonder how much water go into the car. I looks pretty decent in the pictures. Flip side, it could cost a lot to clean it up.

I assume these are NJ cars and probably flooded as a result of hurricane Sandy. I would bet they were in salt water.
Not just salt water that flooded the cars. Other stuff like home heating oil, gasoline, sewage.. you name it. Yuck.

Very good point. That site has about 250 classic cars that are flood damaged. What a shame. I lost my daily driver due to Hurricane Sandy but not because of flood damage. The wind knocked over my 100 year old oak tree and it smashed my car. Thank God my Nova was safe in the garage and no trees fell on it

Salt water and the time that has already passed make it tough.
I have repaired fresh water dunkers (fell thru the ice) before but I bet there
are already some problems with the Nova.

Looks like it was fully or almost fully under. Signs of water in engine comparment/on air cleaner.
if you look closely at the side view of the interior it actually looks like there is rust on the shoulder strap seat belt buckle hanging from the headliner of the car. I hate to say but I would pass on this one.
