That "small" rust hole under the B piller is at least 5 times bigger where you can't see it.
Those rust locations are usually caused by crap like salty dirt, slush, and snow thrown up by the left rear tire on the other side in the fender well. The door jam scratch may be from somebody slamming the door shut on the seat belt buckle.
The motor is a mess and needs a lot of work at that mileage and it has oil all over it. At least that reduces the amount of aluminum corrosion...
I know auto restoration well. I used to do it for a living on old Porsches.
At least the entire 911 chassis is dipped and galvanized after '76.

With the amount and high cost of work that car needs at that mileage it isn't worth more than 25 grand. It will need at least that much more into it and the process can be a long and expensive nightmare.
You have gotten other opinions from people that know absolutely nothing about the work it needs or how to properly do it.
