how do ohio cars usually hold up rust wise and all
thinking about looking at my "Dream" car i've found in ohio it has about 50k miles on it but should the frame be ok just be knowing it's from ohio (up north)
in other words do you guys try to find southern cars and skip ones from up north like that i just don' want to waste a trip to look if it's probably got a lot of rust being from ohio owner said frame is in good shape but you never know
our 68 was bought new in ohio has 53k miles on it and has been in SC since 94....the frame is in great shape, no birdcage problems or frame problems just a little surface rust on the frame is all and it original black paint is still on the frame good so it might not have a rust problem just from being up north
then again ours being in SC since 94 has helped some
Just bought a 69 from ohio, car was a garage qeen and had no rust on it except for a little surface rust on the mufflers/exhaust manifolds. Then again if the car was left outside for winters/driven it could have been badly rusted out. Got to see it in person and find out for your self.
i talked to the owner over the phone and i told him where to check and he said since i was so far away he would check and be perfectly honest since i would have a long trip to look at it.
he said the birdcage and all is great frame looks good and i told him to reach in the drain holes he said theres some rust flakes but i've yet to own a c2 and c3 that didn't have that so sounds like its worth a shot
oh and its always been a ohio car and the 50k is actual miles
