i bet it probly was taken off the road because of that collision on the drivers side, even though it looks to be an easy fix. that hatch definatly is saveable!! would be a great project!

doesn`t look like it would need much, 2 front fenders, rust repair on lower 1/4s, 4 tires, but i would almost put cash on it that the engine and drivetrain would just need minimal cleaning, and work to get them going, it appears they stopped driving it because of that hit. did they accept your offer?

also, MAKE SURE you look over underneath it, the rails, and shock mounts especially, sometimes heavy undercoating will hide rusted areas underneath

yeah i didnt see any bad areas underneath at all..just the areas on the body.

I have to call them tomorrow and find out because noone was around today at the place. Im thinking about offering 100-200 bucks for it if I get the feeling he may not want to get rid of it. Hopefully he'll just say take it!

I would first get your new panels and do your rust prevention and then I would go over the under side of the body with spray on bed liner stuff.I am now adicted to the stuff.Works great.

I found my rust under the basic floor mat area?

Look under the car and see if you see metal........or carpet?:lol:

....I found carpet...:mad:

The frame rails are strong on those cars. The rust in those pictures
won't effect the structural integrity of the chassis.
