The damage appears to have been caused by the salt that is applied to roads when they get snow or ice on them. Nothing rots a car faster than road salt. I talk with another clug of truck owners in the east part of the United Satates. They are always working on the salt damage. Here in California we do not salt roads because we do not get the snow or ice on the roads. Lucky us. I tip my hat to you sir for going the extra mile repairing this car. Be proud of what you are doing and please continue posting these great pictures. Everyone enjoys seeing them as much as I do.


Yes, it's sad to see a bad job on a wonderful car.
It's possible that the salt is the origin of rust, only the bottom is damaged.
The previous owner in Minnessota told me that the car was bought by his dad in a a junk yard in Oklahoma, maybe it was into another state before?
