Kabbalists' Bodies Reburied Whole - 80 Years Later

According to Kikar Hashabbat, Moroccan Kabbalist brothers Ribbi Avraham Tangi and Ribbi Shelomo Tangi were reburied in Israel on Har Hamenuhot in Yerushalayim. Their families requested the reburial in Israel to allow for people to visit the graves of these saintly men. Hacham Ovadia Yosef eulogized them prior to their reburial.

The Hevra Kadisha in Morocco, who dug up their graves, were astounded to see that their bodies were intact.

According to the book Saint veneration among the Jews in Morocco
By Issachar Ben-Ami
, Ribbi Shelomo Tangi had a steady revelation of Eliyahu.
The wife of R. Shelomoh Tangi once peeked in and saw the rabbi studying with Elijah, the entire room glowing with light.

In all likelihood their skeletons were intact. In at least two other cases of reinterment, the Gra and the Chida's skeletons were said to be intact by those who dealt with the bodies, but in retellings it got expanded to intact bodies, hair, etc.
