John- be suspicious of a rot bucket hidden under that new paint. Bondo-
the poor mans panel replacement! Check for thick filler in the wheel
arches and rocker panels.
Since the car is a live axle, it won't have the rear trailing arm
brackets to crack and rust off. The rest of the frame will have the
usual weak spots. I do hope he gets a solid car, if it's a good one, the
price sounds very good.
