    If rusted to a good degree, most likely a parts car. Best to post it in the "For Sale" section. Also, good idea to put up some pictures and some of the folks here w/ long-term experience/knowledge can make suggestions.

    Based on your description, not worth much except for a parts car....unfortunately.

    If the rest of the car is very solid, a roof transplant isn't unheard of from a donor car. Advanced skills are required to get it aligned right but it can be done. Or maybe a conversion to convertible? But if the rest of the car has rust, yes unfortunately even with the low miles a parts car is all it is.
