      Is it just me, or does the white paint on the quarter, roof and trunk appear "whiter" than that on the door and fender (1st photo)?

        It does. I figured they have been painting over the rust and using some bondo to hide it. That is going to end up one ugly car for how nice it is.

        Wonder what's up with it?

              I just picked this car up on Sat. Wish I would have found this site before I purchased. What should I look for? If there is a lot of rust can it be fixed? Thanks.

                Look at the under side of the car to spot hidden rust. Also use a magnet
                on the sides of the car to find bondo. Pull up your carpet in the car and
                in the trunk to check for rusted out floor boards!

                Other wise this could be a good car when fixed up, it is a E58/360ci 4bbl
                Magnum GT. The seat are suppost to be Leather.

                I've kept up with this car for quite a while now, PM me for my Phone #

                  Welcome to here.

                  It's not the worst I've seen. Any car is fixable, just depends on how much you want to do.

                  Qtr panels are available through JC Whimpe. $100/side. Other stuff's out there, you just have to be diligent in looking. No catalogs for Magnum parts for sure.

                  Some members do post parts for sale that they see.
                  .

                  Where old Magnums can find a home.. :angel:

                    One more thing to look at: Always check where the rear leaf spring shackles go through the frame on any late B body. Even cars that have rust no where else will rust there. It starts with the shackle hole wallowing out in the subframe and ends with the leaf spring going up through the trunk floor. It's not hard to weld in metal to fix it, but it's easier before it ruins the trunk floor.

                      On any leaf sprung car that's a good idea.

                      It's fixable and could be worth keeping for the price. Check with members here for parts and part info.

                          Well, it's nice to see it's out of the hands of the Ford guy that had no
                          interest in it and only bought it to flip.
                          Hope to see it restored someday.

                          Sorry about the earlyer pics in this thread __________________________________________________ ____________________
