Poor prior repairs, rust issues, general body condition all can be a red flag. Do your due diligence before diving into this.
Do you have any recommendations for when a vehicle is in another state? I have a guy who could look at it for me if the vehicle was in town and I could certainly send him pictures, but you would probably want an expert present before you buy. I didn't know if you have been in a similar situation or if you could possibly pay someone from a local auto shop to take a look at it or something like that.
