the body work on that thing would be an absolute bish. It looks like it might clean up, but surface rust can be deceiving because you're only really getting a two dimensional picture of a three dimensional problem...

nah, its pretty rough all the way around. that car needs a new.... everything.

I think you'd be better off finding a car that costs a few more bucks to start with that has a crappy paint job but very little rust and all the trim, and an interior that's not destroyed. Makes for an easier project. A few more bucks at the beginning is goign to save you thousands in the long run!

RUST! oh no, They want to much for it. You would have to take it and have it sand blasted just to see all the bad spots. I'm thing $800 - $1000
But I cant see everthing so all I can say it check out the rust and pitting with a screw driver if you poking holes in the floor trunk frame it just all the stuff you will have to fix. so go over it with a fine tooth comb.

GTO's were built on this platform, it could be a real head turner if you do it right. I agree with what has been said, try to git-r-down so you can git-r-done. $500. to $800. sounds about right.
