This plain jane '62 four door is listed on e-bay. Below is how he describes the rust.

"The rest of the floor is solid except for driver's side floor which is rusted through. The ceiling is perfect, the glass is good throughout. The chrome is in perfect condition. Bumpers are straight. The back doors are both solid and the front doors are rusted on the bottom edge. This candy apple red beauty could also be used for parts."

How could he miss the rust in the eyebrows or the back of the front fenders?

I have no idea. Jeff Rice might know. I just hope that you aren't wishing it was saved so you could restore it. [:o)] This one is a little on the rough side... [xx(]

That pic kinda reminds me of the Reece's Peanut Butter commercials. Only in this version, There's no wrong way to remove a Studebaker rear glass! [:o)]

Guido, those are not Rust Holes that the seller has overlooked, as you so ineloquently implied. They are Naturally-Occurring Wheelwell Air Vent Ports. Studebaker saved millions, a few dollars per car, by not stamping those ports into the fender. The engineers ingeniously calculated that exposure to the elements would eventually place them into the fender precisely where they were needed. I hope that answers your question.

I hate to say this but that red 62 isn't all that bad for a Michigan car.
