I like that they mention it has power windows. No, you have one power window remaining. Power window.

This thing is parts at best.

Sweet Baby Jesus!

There's not much left on that thing, even for parts.

Interior is toast, climate control panel is bent to crap...even the steering wheel is borked!

LOL...sorry i shouldn't laugh, having bought a thrashed car. but looks like someone thought they were 007 and try to see the look on Q's face when giving back the keys.

money's only in the parts.... not worth rebuilding IMO

Might be a good source of a chassis and driveline oddly enough. I was trying to figure out where the rollbar went, but it looks like they cut it out to extract somebody. Already up to $9k today.

Here is why it is extremely important to do your research before buying from a salvage reseller. OMG. That frame is gone. They straightened the wheels for their "photoshoot"

Do you know the frame is gone, or just assuming that because the suspension is bent?

Its unlikely it took that much damage and is OK, but not impossible.

I surely wouldn't buy it sight unseen. It is, incidentally still possible that the chassis is OK if any suspension pickup damage is on the (steel) rear subframe.

The door attachement point is damaged, at it is an integral part of chassis.
