Only "the roof and the rear are damaged" by some heat from a fire...     :looney:

See: I always tell people to mount their valve covers on the correct side of the engine, this is what happens when you don't. Call me crazy but I think this is a good deal for a 71 except you need an expensive 71 grille, taillights and taiil panel trim. Especially if it is an R/T, it has a clean title. New roof skin, quarters and rear frame rail/trunk floor assy always seem to be needed on a resto anyway.
Actually is there anyone in the Riverside area that could check this car out for me if I decide to pursue it?

The front seems to be relatively untouched (untorched?), and it's an early production car.  Hard to tell if had the R/T scoops on it at one point.

@RUNCHARGER if you do pick it up, I have a '71 tail panel, bezels and probably lights that I can send your way reasonably.

Yup, 383 looks like it was born there, proper fan, pulleys, PS etc. 3 speed wiper motor. Covid sure messes up looking at or getting cars delivered to where I'm at. I'm working on it though.

Looking at the member map CudaMoparRay looks nearby.
