1974 Land Rover Defender

Purchased this beauty 2 months ago from a guy in Beaufort, SC for my daughter who thought they were cool. Then we broke down at a traffic light and now she refuses to get in it. I don't blame her - it's stressful to drive. Like her dad, it's not perfect. Hell, it's 42 years old!
It's got a sold transmission, solid body, new (but not matching) tires, starts right up and runs well. I just put a grand into it replacing the clutch slave, unfreezing the brakes, cleaning out the gas lines / tank, fixing the fuel gauge, replacing the mirrors.
The frame needs work (as shown), it has a bit of trouble in first gear (not sure what this means about the future of the clutch) needs a tailgate, a new paint job and, it's old (but I've said that already!)
Full disclosure - I don't know much more about theses things but my mechanic may and he'd be happy to talk to you.
Ideally, the buyer would be local to come check the vehicle out his/herself.
