I thought my garage was crammed. I'm sure glad I'm not at the stage you are, it's making me tired just looking at it! :D

Have you ever tried phosphoric acid to clean parts? I use Prep-n-etch from Home depot. Mix it 50 % so a gallon makes 2. Lasts a good long time too. Stuff eats rust like a fat lady on an ice cream sundae. :crazy

How was it equipped, and what are your plan"s . Paint,engine,tran"s thank"s for picture"s Where did you get it??? Inquiring mind"s want to know!!
Car from South Dakota and picked it up in Omaha Nebraska . Super sport package, Power steering ,no Power brakes , Radio . It had no engine or transmission . The frame has dual exhaust hangers so it must of had a 327 cu because it has a 3/8 gas line running through the driveshaft tunnel .
This is the picture before I cleaned up the frame.

Like yellow wagon said and you will get a much better clean up and trust me you will use that blaster on so many part"s and piece"s you can get into small crevice"s that you can"t wire brushing ,much quicker.if you have compressor all you need is cabinet and media.you can get a bench top size.
