Yeah, it's rust. And no matter what Matt says, I don't see it as surface rust. That's rusted-through rust. We've got 'em with surface rust here in Arizona, where the desert sun has cut through the paint and the rain has "surface rusted" the panels. We scuff the rust off with sandpaper and prime the shiny steel underneath. With that Hudson, there is probably no shiny steel underneath. Or if there is, it's probably the thickness of aluminum foil.
The best use of that car, in my opinion, would be to offer patterns to make some real sheet metal parts from.
