Post LeMans trunk pan Rusted Thru

Lookin at buyin a old Pontiac Lemans. The trunk pan is rusted thru, what options do I have? Can the pan be changed out by itself or does the whole rear end need to be changed out?

The rear shouldn't need to be dropped but you have to watch out for the body mounts. If you don't weld the panels in properly around the body mounts you can screw up how the car sits. It's not a real easy job but it isn't one of the hardest either.
