Buying Advice Needed

I have two 1981 wagons I'm looking at. Here's the low down:

Car A has a lot of body rot, new tires. It sounds like his former daily driver, so I can expect it's had decent maintenance. The self levelling system works fine, however if you leave it overnight the back end drops but comes right back up when you start it, needs O rings. And about 100K miles on it.

Car B, if you will, has a new leveling suspension, has an oil leak behind the pan that needs a new seal, new brakes, and needs tires, clean body and sagging seats without tears. This beast has over 350K on it though.

Both cars are daily drivers but I'm not sure how to weigh them. Can any experienced owners give me some advice?
