I agree that roof has great potential, Those B pillars rock!
Is the the same as asking who has the biggest piece of sh--?
Some of the rust repairs I did on my 50 Chevy PU daily driver and work vehicle.No thing pro but just serviceable for short money.
This is one contest I could possibly win, unfortunately.

63 Falcon Convt. I've been working on
Before it was transformed/saved, and made into something to be PROUD of.
1927 chevy about 6 months ago and now. still got a long way to go.
wow Richard that is the peak of rustbucket
Mine was pretty rusty. But I think koolkemp's coupe takes the prize.

Shit man.......a 'lil bondo.....a 'lil paint....lotta beer....World Of Wheels man.!!
If someone wants to win this award hands down they should pick up the '40 Chevy convertible I saved a couple years ago. It was upside down when I found it. We rolled it back over and pulled it out to load and it just plain fell apart - I have about 2/3 of the frame with cowl and doors in one spot, and a rear top tub and bows in another spot, and the quarter fell off that and lays next to it... the bumpers and some other pieces are in the back of a pickup in still another spot.
But with a coupe or tudor donor to build it on, you have all the key parts, you might be able to make something. I had a lead on another one not far away, between the two there should be enough stuff to save too much fab work.
Thought my Riviera was bad?
Okay I will play along also...
I don't get what's so popcorn-worthy about this thread. It's about the rustiest starting point for a project. There's a lot more time and talent required to build a car starting with a rotty piece of shit, compared to starting with a cherry car.
Here's some pics of my rather rusty '59 Edsel in progress
No patch panels available, have to make everything.
Haven't started on it yet, but I promise you that I will build this '55 Dodge convertible. I'm going to combine it with another car, so I don't know if it counts, but it could win the rusty contest. You can see where it broke in half in the center, and take a close look, that's a tree growing out where the engine used to be.
100% worth it since it's a convertible.
33 willys coupe remains
here's my contribution;
On my hunt around here for Model A's, I've brought home some pretty rusty "junk". Almost all the stuff pictured, was neglected, going nowhere, but I have found owners for everything (now their rusty projects) and I have a solid body to work with. Its the one with some black paint from the barn. The chassis is gone, I'm starting from scratch. Enjoy!
I'll take the Shrinker/Strecher if that is one of the prize options!
Belongs to a guy I know, he's going to fix it up someday!
Yeah, I think koolkemp's Ford is the top contender...that is, taking a total piece of crap, and making a cool hot rod/custom.
Want to get her running first, then I'll get the body work going!-MIKE
swiss cheese-where's the brat's and beer??
You might want to get a little bigger gas tank if you're going to be driving it much.
Here is mine, Sat in a swamp in Wyoming for undisclosed number of years.
Floors, rockers, braces, basically the bottom several inches of the car. I hope to have it painted late this winter and get the motor and trans dropped in. I dont have any recent pics but I'm stil msaking headway on it.
I bought a rusty 4 door and took the entire cowl, front clip, trunk lid and several other needed components. My next big project is get the new floors I bought installed along with new braces and inner and outer rockers.
This pic is after the cowl swap and a lot of the floor repairs started.
Well those radio tires are not trad. I would get rid of those if I was going to post on this board.
