Make tons of friends in hotrod community close to you and put the word out your looking for something good and affordable. I found 2 model a sedans for friends in 2 weeks here in Houston. And paid 2k for each. That's the bottom end of the going rates these days. I've seen some sedan body with no doors etc for 3k and coupe bodies are 4-5 now thanks to dumb reality tv shows. Beat the bushes brother and good luck
