Series IIa valuation help

Looking for some thoughts on the value of a truck I have to sell. I hoped to do the resto work myself, but realize I never will get around to it.
It's a 1970 88" Station Wagon. Is in fairly nice shape with a very straight body with some bondo in the left front fender only. Extra clean interior.
Engine runs, no smoke the clutch works as do the brakes, but they both need hydraulic work.
The bad thing is it needs a new frame...it has virtually collapsed and is undriveable as it sits.
So what's a decent truck that needs a new frame worth?
Some rust on the bulkhead, but nothing too terrible. Lower door frames a bit crusty as well.

Looks nice enough! Why not just get a frame(galvanized) and have a swap party? Get the right guys and tools ready and it can be done in a weekend. Watch some utube videos to get hints. For instance done right the body can be lifted off whole. It only has about 20 bolts holding it on.

Otherwise $3-5k for the vehicle? Put a new frame on and you can get $15k.

Since 2As are getting so hard to find, and it seems like everyone wants one nowadays, it is worth repairing and drivable. Whether the person who does that is you or someone else, it really should happen.
It will need, conservatively, 12K worth of love thrown at it in its current state. However on the other end of that it could be a 20-25K sell.
Someone wants it (including me but I simply cannot)

I guess we are spoiled out here where rust free can be found. Out here probably not that much. But your market would be back there anyway.

It is cool and worth fixing from the looks of it. I would love to "save" it but like others, I cannot.

It was at the shore for many years. Familiar with the truck?
