Cheap car! Expensive scrape?

My no longer able to drive grandparents recently gave me a great deal on their low mileage car. However, they got into a few scrapes before parting with it...

They lived in Oregon, which didn't see a lot of salt in the winter, whereas I live in Minnesota, which sees more than a little. Also, they had a nice garage in which to keep it dry; again, I don't have that option.
This is the scrape
it came with.
The $64k question (I hope not...) is: what is the cheapest way to keep the car from rusting/rusting more? I don't care about the aesthetics of the scrape, so I'd like to avoid full door and rear quarter panel replacement. I'm hoping there's... a sealant? Or something similar.
