well it appears then that the majority says to stay away.
It just depends on your ability to part it out. Its just not a good candidate for the typical restoration.
do fastbacks have a fold down seat that is worth anything??
The fold down seats are listed as an option, but i don't remeber ever seeing a stock '68 fastback without one. So, yet it should have the fold down parts that may be the most valuable parts there. Including the brackets that weld to the body. IF they are still there.

How much to restore it? The car is in Europe. How many 68 Fastbacks are around Europe? What would it cost to import a car from the U.S. Those are some of the factors that made it worthwhile to restore that car.
It was restored by the current owner, who uses it for summer tours, and occasional track time.
Amateur restorer. (Well, once in a while I have been paid for it)
It appears all the valuable fastback pieces are shot; roof, rear quarters, deck lid. So, it's not worth parting out as a fastback. The interior picture is all blurred out. But it looks pretty rough and it's unlikely there's any money there either.

I'd say it is worth $1000 if it has a clear title, but it depends upon what you want to do with it.
I bought a 66 Coupe that was in that condition for $600. I wanted it for the the complete power steering assembly, including linkage and the good power steering steering box. I sold a couple of parts off of it then resold the shell with a good 289 motor in it for $400 to a guy in Finland who bought it to build a race car, so he said. It had a clear title. I put the power steering on my 64 1/2 coupe. Cost me about $125 for new hoses and a rebuild lit for the power cylinder plus my time to get power steering. I had an Eaton Power steering pump and used the Thompson PS pump from the 66 coupe on my wife's 65 Vert when I converted her's to PS.
If a guy expects to make $50 an hour parting this car out, then move on. If you want to make a little money parting it out and not worry about your time, then do that. You learn a lot. If you have the skills to rebuild it, then buy it and go to it. Or like others said, put it on ebay.
