    Floors, trunk areas, quarter panels, rotted frame rails and rocker panels are all a major effort to replace if you have no body work skills.
    Also check the corners of the dash by the "A" pillar and look for rust bubbling around the front and rear window trim... Dash patching and window channel repairs can be quite a bit of work too.

    Hope it's in decent shape and the title is in order!

    Well, I'm back. There an afternoon I won't get back. I got up there and the car was in the back of a run down barn. Round tail lights showing under the edge of the tarp.. The guy had the title and said it's a 1971. I saw "Camaro" on the trunk lid and looking along the side, I could see two door handles per side. Pulling the tarp off the top and yes, it was a '71, yes, the emblem did say Camaro. No, it wasn't a Camaro. It was a 1971 Chevelle 4 door sedan. Not even a Malibu.

    The guy is wearing a suit and tie to show me the car. Barn with a dirt floor and filthy tarp over it. His brother wanted a Camaro so he put a Camaro emblem on it. It did move under it's own power but had no oil pressure and a rod knocking. Yes, it was full of oil. Major rust and the interior was shot.

    Lmao. I know how ya feel, I've wasted some of my time looking at what other people claim to be "nice" cars or "solid" projects. But I've never heard a story quite like that one. Funny stuff

    I think the brother wanted a Camaro but needed a 4 door. It still had all the factory badges plus a Camaro badge on the trunk lid. I went 90 miles to look at an old rust buggy.

    I done the same, from Chicago to Paris, Illinois, I’m lucky I didn’t get tetanus looking at the car.
