Looks like the frame is to bad to fix. Tow hook bolt won't come out cant get a wrench on it will have to burn it off.

Came from Portland Oregon four wheel camper was put on in 1980.
Was still in the original owner family. All I have done to it is put the original seats back in it and a new dash pad and a master cylinder. Has rust on fire wall and left rocker back end has no rust.
