Hard to believe a 24000 mile car would have lived most of those miles in salt brine.
Really, I thought so to, but.....the rats/mice nested on the one side, so all aft and front-end solid, as are suspension components, rear pickups..trunk tyre well was affected as it stunk of mice urine and out go the carpets. But it runs well, in fact with the exception of some cowle shake it wasn't bad. so once apart a nice seam weld and I know what is under the paint (I guess)..
The older I get.. the faster I was....
