Running 1978 Mercury Bobcat wagon - $1500, o.b.o., also would trade for small truck

Well, I hate to but I have to get rid of my project baby - I've taken it as far as I'm able and now she needs work I just can't do. For sale is a running 1978 Mercury Bobcat wagon, 2.3L Automatic, P/S, P/B, A/C all in good condition with 124,630 miles on it and a laundry list of things I've updated/repaired. IT NEEDS BODYWORK!! Its a Wisconsin car, and the entire under body needs repair, floorboards front and rear, wheel wells, and most of the metal hose lines need to be updated. I'm not going to lie about the condition, it needs a lot of TLC, and in my current situation, I have no garage or any way to give her the love she needs - what I have done though is keep her driving the last 3 years, and collected several parts that may help someone keep her going. It also comes with the Haynes manual for the car, and a FULL SET of original 13 inch mag rims with center caps(rough) and beauty rings. Also an extra P/S pump, dash cluster front with gauges and circuit board, extra bulb sockets and bulbs, oil pan gasket set, and vacuum module for the transmission. This car was my daily driver for almost 3 years, gets about 25 mpg., and has carted me safely back and forth on about 6 different 1100 mile road trips. Now for the list of things I've repaired -

* Dash Cluster                                                                      * Valve Cover Gasket
* P/S Pump                                                                           * Window Channel
* Timing belt                                                                         * Headlight Dimmer Switch
* P/S pressure line                                                               * Catalytic Converter
* All "v" belts                                                                        * Battery
* Lower Radiator hose                                                         * All new light sockets (except Headlights)
* Spark plugs and wires                                                       * Windshield washer pump                                                     
* Distributor Cap and Rotor                                                  * Thermostat
* Oil Breather cap                                                                 * Water Pump
* PCV filter                                                                            * Carb to spacer gasket and spacer to Intake gasket
* Air Filter                                                                             * Steering Coupler (rag joint)
* Radiator Cap                                                                     * U-Joints
* Fuel Cap                                                                            * Alternator
* Front brake Calipers and pads (both)                               * Voltage Regulator
* Pass. side brake lines (front and rear)                              * Master Cylinder (needs to be bled again, I think)
* Leaf Springs                                                                      * Front Wheel Bearings
* Shocks all around                                                              * Rear Brake Drums
* Rear Brake Cylinders and shoes

$1500, o.b.o., also would trade for small truck.
