Chassis rust!

Hi. Not sure if I should post here or another area, but here goes. Went to have a look at a 57 Outlaw tonight....super clean bodywork 90k miles auto.......but after reading about problems with rust had a good look underneath ( as much as you can ) .... It had a fair bit of rust...mostly surface, but some areas at the rear more especially, cross member under spare tyre looked pretty bad. What to do? Walk away? Or ?

Many thanks

Why would you buy a basket case? Only if you think you can buy it and get Nissan to do a buy back for more than you paid.

It's what I thought you'd say. Shame, I had the D22 and was always worried about the blooming engine on that, now the chassis on the D40...when will they make a decent truck?
