My wife's 1986 Alfasud Sprint QV which we sold in January 2021 had nowhere near the rust shown in that piece.
We bought it in Mallorca in 1990, and it was kept under cover for most of its life after that, and never went near the sea.
However, there was some serious hidden rust inside the bodywork, which seemed to be because there was little more than a mist of paint on the inside of many panels.
Here is a nasty case I discovered when I investigated a stiff rear window winder. The 8mm diameter drain stub at the bottom of the trough below the window, to which the green plastic pipe was once attached, had become blocked and rotted away. resulting water running down inside the skin caused even worse rust at the floor level - not shown here.
