Is this hell?

How bad is this? Can the car be used for a while or should I start welding? Thanks for looking, Joel

If there is worse than hell THAT WOULD BE IT.

That picture of the driver's side makes me worry that this is one of those cars that want's to break in half.

Do the doors bind on closing while you are sitting in it? How are the jack points?

I nominate this as hell on Earth... or hell driving on Earth! This is usually the "tip of the iceberg. Brother, you must now exorcise the demon... Can I have a hallelujah!!

amen brothers

Thanks for the honest opinions. I am going to start investigating further with a die grinder and vacuum cleaner and see if I can hit some meat It does not bind at the door closing yet. Does anyone have a detail plan for just putting in a roll cage? Thanks oh me brothers...J

I have had a car that bent in half. It was not rust in the door jambs that did it. It was rust in the area around the jacking points.

Of course this should be fixed as it will not heal itself, but if the jacking points are still any good at all this car could likely be saved.

It will take a lot of work.....

The jackpoints in my 73 were both rusted, but the car had little other rust. My body guy replaced the jackpoints. It takes some creative welding to do it right.
