Paint chips off but the metal underneath looks pretty clean

One of the ugly spots

One of the previous owners did a shoddy paint job

I've posted the worst of it. Driver side front floor pan, possibly the rear deck filler panel, and a spot in the trunk.
I was expecting a lot worse. I was planning a frame off restoration so using my spare frame almost makes it easier.
Body mounts will probably be a problem too. I am looking forward to this project.

Good luck and enjoy your project. I started with a 67 two door post rust free F85 from Ga. and put a E block, M 22 trans. and 3.23 rear from a 70 442. I know I will never recoup the money and time spent on the car but its a blast to drive and I did it all myself. When it gets to be to much, lay the wrenches down and walk away. Again enjoy.

WOW, you have your work cut out....I've been in the process of restoring my 67 442 holiday coupe for 24 years, and I started out with a totally rust free car....If I had it to do over again, I would have picked an easier car, like a chevelle or Camaro, maybe a GTO. There are a lot more repro parts available now than when I started, but they are really expensive. just dropped almost $3000 on misc parts for it....if i'm lucky, I may break even when I'm done. I bought the car in the early to mid 90's when my daughter was maybe 8 or 9 years old. She's a doctor now and 33 years old and getting married in a few months. I took out a whole life insurance policy on her when she was little, and when she's married, the wife gave me her blessing to use the cash value to finish the car....both my girls used to ride in it to go see there grandma and grandpa when they were little...its been a long journey
