1964 Ford Other coupe

I got this car from my boss and have done most of the work on it myself.
Now to get to the good and bad of the car:
The Good
This car has a replaced engine and is running a 302 V8 from a 1975 Ford Grenada, this is a real all american style engine. It's got a Holly 4 barrel carburetor which has been taken apart and cleaned. The radiator has been replaced with a Champion 3 row core all aluminium model, cooling system flushed and loaded. The alternator has also been replaced as well.
The body on this car is overall in amazing shape. When I got it from my boss it had been sitting for years outside with no cover and I expected there to be rust everywhere but to my surprise there was not too much body rot nor a lot of rust. No dents or anything in the body that cant be easily fixed. This car has power steering too! It is a beauty and head turner - I often find people taking photos with it or commenting on it where ever I go.
Now the not so Good
This is an older car that has been sitting, so there are a few things that need to be addressed. For starters, the power steering pump works, but when it was put in the owner before me didn't fill it up properly and blew the pump, there is now a leak and it groans as a reminder that it needs to be replaced - BUT IT DOES WORK!
There is some small amounts of rust on the body, but nothing too bad, the worst that it has affected the car is there is a small leak along the drivers side which I notice if I forget to cover it during the rain - but only seems to be bad when its sitting around in the water. If you have a garage for this baby then this shouldn't affect you. I have put in some easy weather stripping which has been a big help.
There is also a small electrical drain which I have been unable to figure out yet - I am not an electrically inclined guy, and if someone you know or you yourself are good with electrical systems it should be no problem for you to figure it out. While this has been annoying I have just taken to disconnecting the battery so I don't have to jump it everyday. While working on this I also noticed the turn signals aren't working and it could just be the bulbs but I haven't bothered to check because I don't drive this much.
Finally the dash instruments need some work and I just haven't had the time nor the money to put this all in its place.
oh boy that was a lot - in summary this car is a beautiful piece of art that sounds like a beast. It is a minor project and is 100% drive-able as is. I have loved this car for the few months that I have had it, but I am leaving San Francisco in a couple weeks and I would rather just see this go to someone who will enjoy it rather than find a place to store it for the next 4 years. I will not arrange transportation of the car - If you want it you come and drive it away
