    Sounds like there's been a bit of work done to it... maybe it's one of those cars that the owner has just got cheesed off with because he's had to fix so much that it seems he's always spending money on it... and it might well be he's spent the last money that will have to be spent for a long time.

    From what I've seen, and I haven't really done a lot of looking, rust can be in the joints in the firewall panels under the bonnet and in the rear pillars.

    Have a look down the bottom of the rear guards. The space inside the boot where the jack is on the left and the other storage space on the right can fill up with water and mud if the boot seals get tired. This can cause rust. It's a good idea to put some drainage holes at the lowest point here. My 504 had about 10 litres of water sloshing around in there.

    Also, directly under the battery is another point where rust can form. Usually on the front left rail where electrolyte has fallen.

    ...and if it's not up to scratch, you'll find what looks like a nice one in the latest cars for sale ad. It's in Alstonville, but it's a New England car.
