no one would restore that.

any falcon with that much decay would never get restored unless it was really something special, eg phase III ho, RPO83, phase 4, ect ect. and even then thats a long shot, that things an abortion... always better to start with a decent shell, doesnt matter if the shell has rust, on quarter panels etc, but by the looks most of that rust is in really hard to repair places... door jams etc.
