    Was originally a Florida car.

    Other than the little crease in the back door. It looks like a pretty complete and nice car.

    A paintless dent repair guy might make that door look almost normal, and you wouldn't have to replace the Di-Noc, which you can't find, anyway.

    Looks like there is rust above both tail lights, unless I'm seeing things?

    Wow. That is a great eye. I just thumbed through the pictures. It certainly looks like rust through, and what an odd ball place. Don’t think I’ve ever seen rust that far up. Says it was a Florida car, but that looks like it came from the back through. Also looks like it’s on both sides.

    It might be explained by someone screwing in decorations in both locations. I have no idea what those decorations would be, though.

    It could also be peeling Di-Noc. No way to tell without better pictures or looking at it in person. Rust through in those two spots seems pretty peculiar to me on what appears to be an otherwise solid car.

    Don't think its rust - the Di-Noc from the sides terminates just above the the top outside edge of the rear tail lights, the side Di-Noc overlaps the the rear at this location. They have a tendency to peel.

    Those spots on each side actually " ARE " rust ! I got pictures of the rear and the di-noc is missing as well.
    Funny, the Flipper/seller failed to mention those when saying how NICE the body was. Arrr......
