    Got the Limo on the lift to get a better look.
    Car body looks solid enough but that’s about it.
    Subframes and suspension needs to come off and get blasted.
    Fuel lines and tank straps need replaced
    Oil temp switch is leaking and has no wiring.
    Exhaust route is not very good and all mounts snapped.
    Front struts have coilover that can maybe be saved, looks to have some sealing tape on the threads.
    Radiator is leaking but horns look ok

        since you have a lift it will be so much easier, just undo the prop, remove the exhaust and disconnect the brake lines/abs then drop the whole rear suspension and uprights, 4 bolts for the rear subframe and 8 on the suspension (4 each side) Will make working on it so much easier removed.

          Looks like it’s all do able and not too much that’s major,but a lot of time to clean it all up well. Good luck with the project.

                  Never seen these brackets on a Coupe before?
                  Attached to the body at the rear of the front subframe maybe a V6 thing?

                    the front pipe is welded without corrugation, this is wrong. corrugation dampens vibrations

                      Agreed, the whole exhaust needs reworking. Going to fit flexi and cat with vee bands then centre and rear box needs adjustment.
                      MOT history mentions exhaust problems.

                          Those aluminium brackets are protection for the original dual cats so they don’t get damaged if the car bottoms out
