    wow that is a lot of rust.. i have seen them rust near the arches all the time but never in this place.. .was it parked up ?? looks like there was a water leak in side the car while it was standing..
    unlike arches this is a structural issue

    Was just thinking it might be pricey as it might need braces because the roof will drop when this is cut

    Think we need to see a wider shot to know just how bad it is, it's hard to gauge it from the little picture above.

    It will most likely be repairable but expensive, it's not a unibody structure, so offending part will be cut out and then replacement section welded in, i've seen crashed cars repaired like this.

    Well that in itself doesn't look too bad to fabricate new, just wondering how the undercarriage looks if the sills have faired so badly.

    Either way, long as there's no other nasty surprises I think she's salvageable :Smile:

    If I where you, when you do get the car, take the side skirts off, as it looks like they are removable. Just to see how bad the cill really is. If the car is rare it might be harder to get replacement panels.
