Not bad but Baltimore = rust. I may take a look anyway.

There's definitely rust but there's not many out there that don't.

I asked auto or stick and how is the rust. Here is what I got:

Paets car usedto get all parts to restorenfront left has small hole

Don't think I'll go any further.

Translation of seller's response:

"This is a parts car to restore another car with. Sheet metal on left side has a hole of small size in an ambiguous area."

Translation as in what this means for buyer:

"Small hole in left side" = "Door is missing!"

Or, more accurately:

"This is a disaster that has - theoretically - $2k worth of parts on it. However, everything will be in such bad shape that even pulling the 351C and refurbishing it for something else will be more effort than it is worth, and the valuable interior bits will be thrashed. Nobody will want the supposedly valuable bits from the car that you put on eBay to try to recoup some of your expenses. Rear axle will undoubtedly be a Trac-Loc just to get your hopes up, and turn out to have been driven dry until damaged beyond repair. Sheet metal? Yes, there's a lot of sheety metal here, all right. It doesn't look that bad at first, but you'll find out it's structurally rotted from the bottom due to salt roads. If it isn't, you're a lucky bugger and might have actually bought yourself a workable, restorable car, but if it was that good, we would have put it on eBay for a wholly unreasonable $10k than sell it to you for $3.5k."
