I have an old fashioned claw tub - there are are rust spots on the outside.

Can this be fixed? Do I sand it and then repaint it? If yes, what kind of paint is needed?

Yes you can remove the rust with a rust treatment and sanding and simply paint it with a water proof paint. Check with your local hardware store for the proper paing. Many of these old tube were painted with just house paint.
