owww that body is ruff... 8k may be correct. alot of the rust is not surface....
the interior is surface rust but the truck is a goner the hood is bad it has been repainted that is hiding alot of other stories,, for that money i would keep looking for another ride. if it was a true ss 396 i would say grab it and hunt for replacement parts. but on a malibu pass.... there are better bodies to start with.
