Thank you all for your interest and advice. This was the first photo I could find on my phone (with my baby girl). 75 Roadster right hand drive. My dad stopped driving the car when the steering and wheels started getting the Death Wobble, that was decades ago. I had a mechanic friend come by and we got the motor to turn over but the carburetor is broken and the fuel in the tank has been in there for a couple of decades, so we didn't push too hard to get her running. Unfortunately my friend moved and I have been too busy to continue work (3 kids under 7).
My goal is to start with a partial restoration to get it in good, safe, and reliable driving order. Paint/chrome/interior and other aesthetic stuff will come later. The car is almost 100% complete. But there are some unoriginal parts (steering wheel, carburetor). Thankfully she has been garage kept with no rust. I am not looking for a show car. Just a reliable driver. So I agree with having the car "totally sorted mechanically."
Keep the comments coming. This is all very beneficial.
