That really sucks!

You may find that it looks worse than it really is. Engine fires are messy, especially if the fire department hosed it down with foam and powder type fire retardants. If you get in there with a power washer you may find its not as bad as it looks. I'm sure someone will have a decent wiring harness and hoses and belts are not too expensive. Other than that you may only need a few rattle cans of primer and touch up paint. It's unlikely that any major stuff got cooked unless the fire burned for a fairly long time.

What motor in the car??
I may have a spare complete harness for a '68 C big block.
I can grab a small block harness no problem.
Check on how far the wires burned  going towards the bulk head,check under the dash and if the burn creeped into the dash,I have a spare bulkhead and harness.
PM me if you decide to save her.
How about some pics of the carnage???
