Am considering acquiring a 74 shadow. There is some rust on the rocker panels. One even has a hole near the rear wheel.

Someone told me that because the 74 shadow has Monocoque construction, rust on the rocker panels means rust on the car's basic structural integrity. On a car with a separate frame, the rocker panels could simply be replaced.

Has anybody here had to consider the significance of rust on the rocker panels of a 74 shadow? Is this a signal that the car ought to be avoided?

I will happily send photos to those interested.
