That's a 74-up core support. The big tail lights make me think it's a 79 or 80 Pinto or Bobcat body. I'm not sure if the pop out windows were still available those years or were just added.  The hatch is 71 & I'm betting so are the bumpers & rear pan. The rear bumper filler looks like a cut down 79-80 since 71's didn't have a filler & 77-78 are wider than 79-80. The frontend was Bobcat & the tail lights, sport wheel, tach dash & gauges suggest a 77 Sport was stripped of those.
 
I'd love to strip it for parts  8)

Oh, you're not!  But what is there left to say?  Your post summed it up perfectly!

"One piece at a time, and it didn't cost me a dime" I got you meaning right away! An apt analogy of the Pinto/Bobcat!

Ok lol, I was worried for a minute that my reference was answered by the sound of crickets.
