Considering buying this 1978 40-series for $11,000, but I'm concerned specifically about the rust. Anyone think it's beyond salvageable if my intent is to fully restore the truck?

Haha are you both being sarcastic or what?
Restoring kills all the time you can enjoy the truck and learn what it really does/doesn’t need.
Is it a diesel or small block swapped or? Curious why the passenger side exhaust. As said, rust doesn’t look bad from 3 pictures of where I wouldn’t be worried about rust. Things like completeness, drivetrain, body are where I’d be looking to determine a value and if worth restoring.
Ya I saw the left side exit but right side down pipe. This was before the pics and info showing it’s sbc swapped, which makes more sense.I see the angle brace for the rear frame member of the left. Exhaust is on the left side and exits on the left because a spare tank was added.
