It's in Swansea Mass near Fall River. From what I've seen the strut towers are clean and no underside rust. The ad is old, the car is up for 4000 and currently 72k miles. The only rusty spot on the car is some spots under the hatch window. Will post pics.

4K is probably a realistic price for it. I still question the miles but you'll just need to go byoverall condition and how well it runs and drives.

But 4-eye ttop is a cool car to grab. Looks generally clean on the outside. Just check for rust.

The front fender looks a bit out of alignment as well so check the Inner apron area for damage

Well, definitely not a tube chassis car but I'd look the shock towers over closely of course but also the other problem areas like torque boxes, door hinge areas, area all around the master cylinder and under the trunk/hatch area by the fuel filter.

Sorry but what's a tube chassis car?

Well yes and no, yes it is part of a 'tube chassis ' car. Looks like 'through the floor' sub frame connectors. In the link I sent you are pictures of a true 'tube chassis ' car. In my opinion this is not a tube chassis car. But I have not seen the underside so there could be more.

Those are through the floor subframe connectors. I wouldn't call it a tube chassis, but it is nice bracing to have on a car if you don't mind the bars in the interior

Hopefully you are enjoying it in what is the last stretch of decent weather in this neck of the woods.
