Help buying 1st Scout

Hey all, here's the deal. I'm getting ready to propose to my girlfriend and believe it or not, a Scout is a part of the deal. Her dad owns a Scout II that my girlfriend has always loved and wants one terribly as a weekender/beach vehicle. Unfortunately her Dad's Scout has been terribly neglected, and has rusted through in multiple areas and doesn't turn over. I'm very comfortable with mechanical fixes, body work however is not my strong area.

I'm just looking for tips or things to look for that are Scout specific. My budget is around $1,000 so obviously it will be a serious fixer up'er. Any chance of even finding one with a decent body for that price? Thanks for the help!
