1971 HQ ONE TONNE

Is the early HQ one tonners more desirable then the later ones just been offered one for 1K it's not running complete (Hz nose cone) it has a lot off dents and the front drivers floor has been replaced with crap off a barrel etc,car has supposedly sat for ten plus years ,l gave it a hit with my hand at the rear off the doors an sounded too solid no noise just a dud sound is that normal?
Looks good around the windscreen an rear window an door pillars
I don't really need anymore projects but would l be mad to knock this one back it's not advertised
Cheers

Does the compliance plate show HQ.
HZ bonnet as well ?
Has the cowl panel behind the bonnet been changed to suit the bonnet ?
What dash Q or Z ?
Make sure it is a tonner (cab chassis on the plate) not ute.
Utes are also shorter wheel base with different chassis bracing behind cab.
As to dull sound at base of section behind door could be bog, is the seam still there where it joins the sill ?
Running a magnet over the body will sometimes tell metal against bog, but not always.
Depending where it has lived it's life will depend on how much rust is hidden.
Worst place to fix rust is plenum at the base of the windscreen.
Not the top cowl panel but the catchment area underneath.
Have a good look under the dash up high.
