    With the sellers permission I'd bring a phillips screwdriver and remove the sill plates (that shouldn't be too challanging). Then with a stick and flash light look under the carpet. That way you can check for rusted floors. I don't live in the rust belt but can first hand tell you a LOT of cars rust from the inside out. If good a great insentive to buy the car. If bad the seller should have checked and disclosed and you have reason to walk away.

      That car looks like it's a bargain, IF it's not rusty. Looks like a flipper bought it for$1500,now reselling for a a bit of profit. So you have some insider ammo now. If he want's to sell it you, make him show you the chassis up in the air on a hoist or jackstands. If it's solid, maybe needing a few spots fixed and you like it, offer $2000 to start. He likely offered $1000 or less when he bought it.

      Also please take the advice already offered and DO NOT buy and start taking it apart!!!! PLEASE

              Certainly possible. Or, he sold it rather quickly. That happens. Maybe I'll attend some SDC events and see what's available on the market generally.
