Hi and welcome to FSB. :rockon

I have a 90 that has her share of rust. Did a tank repair last fall here are some of my pics

On to your question, not too sure about the 80 but my initial thought is yes if you get one that has been let for for a long time you will most likely have a bunch of rust to deal with. LMC Truck is a great source for aftermarket part for our trucks. There is also a sticky at the top of the post page with other info including "Recommended FSB catalogs".

All in all if you are serious about keeping your bronco those links along with help from the folks here will help get your bronco back into shape...

I would suggest some pics of the cancer so that others who have much more experience then I could give you their insight. Ultimately the decision will be yours as you will be the one doing the work...

Good luck

Can you post pics of how bad it is? Just my opinion, but these trucks are cheap enough, that sometimes they arn't worth fixing(unless your attached to it).

What part of the country are you in? The junkyards here in WA are full of rust free 80-96 bodys.
