Best thing they can do with that is build a box around it and fill it with resin, that's the only way it's going to even stay in the state it's in. Has anyone done that before? Maybe leave the doors open and hollow that bit out so you can slide through and look at the interior from the inside, like a fish tank...

The autoweek article gets it horribly wrong - even with all the sheetmetal replaced, in the weird world of collectible classic cars, it'll still be matching numbers as long as VIN plate and engine block are salvaged.

And no, it wasn't reshelled. It is the same base unit, with a lot of new panels fabricated for it. The only larger donor was a roof from a different car.
