Maybe time for a new model. Periodic radiator leak. Near constant exhaust leak. I won't even go into the rear end seepage. Had her for about 40 years but am enticed to try something new. What do you figure she's worth as a trade in? I can provide pictures of her for serious buyers.

Probably the basics like year, model, mileage will help. At a start, probably worth at least scrap value.

There is nothing wrong with letting it go. Maybe it's time to give someone else an opportunity to enjoy it.

I'm pretty sure he's talking about his 64' Plymouth.

Plymouth isn't going anywhere. Engine is torn apart for the time being. Once rebuilt I will eventually migrate back to Red Line.

From the description of various leaks, OP is experiencing isolation & hibernation overload, and his wife is also making 'like worded' posts on her forums.
