Richard you must have bought one from SA's rust capital Durban....... high humidity followed by your salty roads would not be a good combination.
I've had quite a few Alfa's over the years, still have 13 in the collection and all bar 2 are good body-wise, the other 2 were abandoned and left outside before I got them, but it's only the usual floors, wing bottoms, sills and the boot floor that are tired, the rest of the structure is remarkably good.
The one I'm restoring right now is virtually rust free, just minor pin holing in the very bottom of the sills and under the battery where an acid spill did some damage.
