Rustproofing makes sense.

Bonus points if you can ID the vehicle.

I'm guessing a Jeep of some form.

I have only ever seen Super Dutys in that condition but rust was not the reason.

Doesn't look very rusty to me. I've seen less metal on a FIAT after a mild Scottish spring.

That's a JK Wrangler Unlimited. No doubt. Looks pretty good to me! Looks like the 3.8 V6 so that means 07-11, so for Ontario, I'd say it's a win.

It always blows me away when you see brand new trucks with visibly clean frames driving around without having been oil sprayed. Also cars that you know for certain are 5 years old max drive by with bubbled wheel wells. If you oil spray every year your car will never rust.

It's a pre-Pentastar JKU. The frame is in good shape.

I am split on rustproofing. On one hand, I have decided that I will probably rust proof my next vehicle either yearly or 1 on 2 years.. Only reason, is because since I work from home, I dont put much mileage on my cars and I like to keep them a very long time.

However, my 2007 is still pretty rust free and its never been rust proofed. Underneath its really good, very minimal and all surface rust only. I am starting to see some rust bubbling on the lower rocker panels that just appeared this past year.. 10 years in heavily salted roads can do that I suppose... however, I also don't want to send my car to scrap with the body in mint condition.. LOL.. Reminds me of my dad scrapping his old car.. after taking his seat cover off, the seat looked brand new! If I drove more, I wouldn't bother as for most folks 10 years is a good life for a vehicle.. I could probably go 5 more years without rust proofing before rust becomes a real issue, so in theory, despite rust starting... 10-15 years of life til it meets the scrapyard due to rust in an area with large temperature swings and heavily salted roads... you cant complain...especially considering that most people dont keep them even 10 years...

You are probably correct as even if a rust free example has higher resale, anyone looking for a truly cherry whatever you drive would not be looking for it in Canada. This is BITOG buddy, obsessive preventative maintenance is encouraged here and who does not love a mint condition old car?

Rusty cars drive me nuts, especially if I own them.

Can't see: Is that chassis C-channel (good) or box-section (bad)?

Are any lightish C/U channel chassis vehicles available on the US market?

Looked into it in the Yook and the only reasonably-sized one seemed to be a BL Sherpa chassis-cab. Earlier versions of the Toyota Zace here were channel, but no more.

Did the rest of the body sleuth off in one rusty heap, leaving only the frame? What am I missing here???
