yea but up close youd probably see it. they usually rust in places you can't see from the inside out. Like the corner of the wheel arches, under the windscreen grille, corner of doors, and on sedans, behind the c-pillar cover. I might be wrong about the rust on this car, but if you do go and have a look at it, be sure to check those areas.

rust is unfortunately more the norm than the exception on older Fords but this one looks pretty good - for 500 bux it looks like a bargain..I'd buy it! it'd be the perfect parts hauler....

I dont believe that this ute is nessisariy going to be rust bucket. Any 30 year old car is renound for rust. Well except maybe a delorean. If its been well looked after, it will be a great car for a project.
