Like Max I'd say that what you can see is only 10% of the problem.  Midgets
do seem to suffer from severe corrosion in that area - going into the engine
compartment as well - much more than Bs.  I've never heard of one so bad the
hinge was swinging free, and saw a repair of one not as bad as that where
the owner ended up replacing most of the lower outer structure.  At best it
sounds like a parts car.

rust free except for the area on the driver's side door-I'm guessing it is
called the A post.  The bottom hinge swings free of any attachment due to
rot.  Peering into the wheel well reveals a severely corroded area.
