I'd buy it if I had the space!
No affiliation but seems like a good price if it's not too toast

Seattle.... doesn't appear to have rust.

I can see rust on the lip of the rear fender. Eastern Washington/Ellensburg increases the likelihood it’s a rust bucket, especially since it looks like it’s been outside for awhile and obviously isn’t running. I’m betting it’s a parts car.

??? It's in Eastern Washington...not Seattle. Eastern Washington is almost a desert. Ellensburg gets 8" of rain a year. Seattle gets 37. I've bought several, rust free cars in Eastern Washington. Tougher but not impossible to find a rust free one on the western side of the Cascades.

AC car. A $4.5k roller with a BIG hole in the front. Hose sized holes everywhere and more than likely a large piece of the engine shelve and top tin is gone.

Less precipitation yes, but they get 21” of snow annually that stays around a lot longer than it does on the other side of the mountains and IIRC they salt the roads and the car looks like it’s stored outside.

Plus I don’t trust an ad that claims ‘rust free’ when I can easily see rust in a photo and none of the photos even show any of the usual rust spots.

If I’m wrong it wouldn’t be the first time. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif)
