As a beater. Any problems with the rust in those areas? Especially since there are actually holes in the panels. If anyone see anything that would be a reason not to buy this car LMK. I know the interior is stained and the hood is pretty off alignment.

Looks to me like the hood is just popped.

Wasn't sure about that. My dad said the rubber stoppers were just way up, Either way, it can be fixed.


BONUS: The JY recently recieved a Green Bonne with mirrors ect I could get for this car to make it look better too.

If it runs well, go for it.

The rust I would take into consideration. In that location, it is not too bad, but depending on where else it is. It is in Corning, NY, which is just south of me by an hour and a half.

i know there is a member down in the Elmira area who could look at it possibly.

If you want to see where the rust can occur and compare, take a look at the pictures of my Red SSE parts car.

Also, if you go to look at it, remove the back seat bottom and you'll know whether to keep the car or not based on any rust you might find there. The bottom can be removed with no tools

Planning on making an appt for test drive. If we do decide to go test it out we will drive the Bonne though Canada there and check it out and possibly take it home. Neighbors will be thrilled once they see 2 of the same cars

as you are passing through rochester, you should stop by. If you happen to need some small parts, I might have them here. When would you be coming all the way out to test drive?

No idea yet. My dad is thinking about waiting a few weeks and seeing if anything better is put for sale, if not we may go to NY if it is still avalible.
