I purchased a 1970 Chevelle SS in January of 2002. When I located this car on a farm, it had been covered with a heavy large army tarp for several years and there was major rust damage on the body. I had to replace the entire roof, due to the rusting of the front and rear window supports. I also replaced all of the body panels with new GM parts.
