John,
I would have bought the front 1 foot of nose section and I know someone who would have bought the convertible top frame for parts. You could have doubled your money and still had something to take to the crusher!!

What you can't see is that ther car hit something with enough force that the top frame and windshield frame were pushed fwd about 8" and the nose and steering wheel were crushed badly. Somebody did not have a good day in this car (niether did a squirrel that was trapped in the trunk some time ago). The rust in this car rendered the what you useless. She gave up all parts that were salvageable.

If you need a nose section, I may have one. What else are you looking for?

Did you take a full series of photos of the crushing process? You may have
created the most infamous set of Amphi pictures ever. Why not post the
complete agonizing record, right down to the faintly green billet? If you
did a video, you could set it to music and put it on YouTube!
