It sure doesn't look good. What's the frame look like? You need to pull the kick panels and get a better look. Much more qualified members than me will be along and offer their thoughts but I'm guessing it's pass on this one after some closer examination.

I don't see a deal breaker. What are you calling rust?

Looks like rust around the edges of the doors , didn’t say it was a deal breaker and not all old cars have rust , I have a 52 year old GTO that doesn’t have any rust. Thanks for help. Lol

What you see around the door is yellow weather stripping glue.
