Wanting to buy a 71 cougar conv. What danger spots do I need to look for on this car. I'm gonna look at a 71 that's clean on the outside from pics but haven't seen it in person. Just want to know where to look ahead of time. Said floor pans have been patched and metal rails added to the frame. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

Poke at those rockers and frame rails! Make sure they are solid. Ass wagons will fill them with foam and bondo. Cowl is a general bad spot for all these year cougars. Seems like they are either a good original or resorted for good $$ or a complete rust bucket for $5k or less. Really never seem to find anything in between in FL at least! Good luck!
