Re: '67 500 - Fair price?
These cars like to rust no matter the climate.
One critical area to check is the frame rails right behind the front wheels.
Water and dirt get kicked up into the holes that are in the bottom of the frame rail.
The mud collected there retains moisture and rots the frame rail from the inside.
The rail can look solid from the outside, but the metal can be paper thin.
Not structurally critical like the frame, but the rear quarter wheel openings also like to rust.
It would be quite rare to see one that has not rusted, or had repairs in that area.
