The car is not rusted out like most Cougars of this age appears to have been rust proofed either when new or early in its life. Roof is solid as the car does appear to have been garage kept most of its life. Frame rails, Torque Boxes, Floor Pans, and Shock Towers have zero rust other than minor surface rust from paint chips. Trunk Floor and Drop Offs are solid. There are some minor bubbles in the fronts of the doors and the fronts of the quarters and lr quarter (see photos). Paint is probably a 6-7 interior 8-9. Additional photos available upon request.
