- "Any rust issues at body panels, rockers, frame etc., (rust through, patches, welding repairs, bondo)? How is the condition of the floor panels under the carpet and under the blanket in trunk? Everything working at the car? Thanks" - There were a few rust-through spots, about 3 inches in diameter (just behind the front wheels, just ahead of the rear wheels) that were repaired with body putty when the car was repainted by a previous owner. There are some very small, barely noticeable cracks around the repairs now. No known frame repairs or welding. All floor panels and trunk panels are in great shape. Everything works in the car, including the original AM radio. The newer AM/FM radio was added for current owner's enjoyment.
