Looking for ideas to stop the rust and what my father should pay for it.

First, is it worth it?

Second, can we go from light blue/silver to black, cuz he wants black.

Third, I am NOT a paint/body guy. I am a tech guy, engines and such. But I told my dad, I know a guy that can do the rust and color change for 1500$.

Am I off the mark?

Background on the car.

My uncle was diagnosed with brain cancer, is now on death row so to speak, so dad picked it up.

But hates the rust on it, the car has been sitting for so long, we need the rust gone to preserve the memory of the car for my dad.

Is it wishfull thingking to repanel a car and change from blue to black (semi black dad wants) for 1500$.

Car runs great from what my dad says. Suspension feels good, the 4 discs bite and engine feels good, no check lights etc.
