I've got to admit I've never seen a spring pan rusted through, that is a first. That area around the top shock mount is scary.
It never hurts to have a parts car and this is a good place to start. You should be able to get a good rust free car farily reasonable, heck I tried to sell my 77 spider that I had fixed all the rust on, there wasn't much, new paint, tight suspension, good clutch, great gearbox, new top, just a tired but faithful engine and it wouldn't sell at what I thought was a very reasonable price. Not trying to sell a car just pointing out that you will save yourself a TON of money by starting off with a decent car and have a heck of a lot better Alfa experience in the long run and that car is a marathon.
The passenger seat is 15 miles an hour faster than the drivers seat.
