70 BGT advice

For the past week I have been looking at a 70 bgt in the area (DC metro 
area) and I am looking for advice on whether I should buy it.  The vitals:

Very strong engine, desmoged and nice cam
Very clean and complete interior (leather)
New paint in last couple of years

Rusted through driver floor board.
Rust near front of rear left leaf spring.  Bracket is solid.
Rust bubbling under paint of quarter panel behind drivers door.

What is the cost of having a shop replace the floor board?  What would you 
offer?  He wants 2000 and I offered 1500.  If I don't take it for 2000 he is 
going to donate it to a charity.  Need to let him know by Sunday.

It would be a complete luxury to purchase, seeing as I already have a 70 b 
roadster and two other late model vehicles.
