    what there was of it

    Dear Teachers,

    I read this from The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody by Will Cuppy:

    "His physique was reported to be all right, what there was of it."

    What does "what there was of it" mean?

    He was not very big/impressive. There was 'not much of him'.
