Question Need advice on 77 purchase

Hello all,
I "know a guy" who has a '77 Camaro in his yard that's been there for
15 years. He says it ran when he parked it but hasn't driven it and it
doesn't run now. I'm in Albuquerque so it shouldn't be rusty or
anything. It's real dry here. If anything the interior may be all dried up.
He doesn't have the money to fix it up so he may sell it. It apparently
has some aftermarket stuff on it from the 70s so it wouldn't be
original but the aftermarket stuff wouldn't be worth much now I imagine. He
isn't necessarily in the market to get rid of it but he may part with it
for me.
I have no idea how much this car would be worth in it's current tow
away condition. Can anyone on the boards give me some advice on it's potential value?
Thanks
muscle

Check the rear subframe and trunk carefully. They are notorious for rot there on 2nd gens.

check

Check under carpet, there could be a spot of rust there also.
