Question: how much would it cost me to restore this car?

it apears to be mostly cosmetic damage. the grill is missing, the headlights don't work, the tires are flat, the coler was blue but it faded and rusted a bit. on the inside, the sets are riped apart, and its dusty. but the engen seems to be in good condision.
