Excellent challenge always amazing how something left parked up becomes raided for parts and further dismantled over the years..if not deliberately damaged . Why holes were opened and then left completely uncovered into the gearbox is beyond me.  ( I think I might have been a bit more gentle to use the tractor lift place it on a frame or sledge of timber before dragging it resting largely on the displaced second fuel tank, to freedom ).
 Many of the wholly unique important bits look to be still there, like rear axle case, rear side doors and SW body. But far too much like 107SW radiator surround, unique rear seat setup ,unique window glass, as well as standard parts of floors is long gone.
It will take time to find these parts off others.   

Good luck !
