looking to buy a p6 3500

If the sills are full of filler then water will leech through it as it's porous. Ask me how l know. :rolleyes:
It may not be that though, water can get inside by various ways & means, it might be a grommet or two missing in the bulkhead. That's the easy fix.

Falks and Rovering Both made excellent comments something I haven’t thought of Falks mentioned there the AA inspection great idea
Yes Rovering is right another great idea would be for missing grommets also the top of the doors can let in water if there not tight to the rubber, I remember a good friend of mine every time he was looking at a car he used the pound trick he went round every panel to see if a pound would fit in the gap between wing or the door ect maybe it was because he was taking his time I think and not rushing things he could spot the panel not correctly aligned or over spray from a repair he could spot it.
The guy was a sellers nightmare in a nice way.
I think all cars have a story to tell
the biggest lessons I have learned is to take my time. If the seller has someone lined up for the car so what there are lots more out there. if he’s unhappy replying to your questions then you have to ask why.

Everything is solvable at a price. I've never had a P6 that has rotted at the heater area so it's not something that happens to all of them but shouldn't cost a fortune & everything is available should it be the case. It would be a relatively straightforward fix, especially if you can weld.

I've got two that had that problem. The 64 car - very little rot elsewhere though - and the NADA had a rotten aircon heating box.

I found getting the box apart was a problem in its self but it’s possible,
you don’t know what’s going on underneath until you remove it.

If I was going to repair a heater box - which I will eventually - I'd ask Alexandra to do it for me. She's done a few now, and does a really good job. Repairs, paints, and even puts the original style stickers back on, if I recall.

She has the purple series 1 2000 Automatic :)
