If it's a factory V6/4spd, that's a rare bird.

Original engine and transmission its been overheated run like hell hydro locked a few times and she still runs , well it would take a gallon jug of gas for a fuel tank and a battery , I remember my Dad hooking up the neighbors 60 foot long mobile home to get it into place I don't remember it moving but I was impressed , this was in the late seventies early 80s it was 4 years old when my parents bought it .

A little bit of polish and it will be driveable.
