I can't tell for sure from a picture but it looks like you could repair that car for a whole lot less than using it as a donor and buying a new kit. Everything but the front end looks intact. Is the frame damaged? I wonder if FFR would sell you just a body and some misc. pieces that were damaged in the wreck? All you'd need after that would be radiator, left suspension, and maybe a steering rack. As a side question, what's that tube with the white piece just above the front tire. Earl's footbox vents?
This car might be a real find if the price is right. Dual rollbars, coated pipes, nice wheels, and who knows what other options lurk beneath the skin.
I have several salvage titled cars, I just use them and fix them and reuse them
This would serve the same purpose, rebuild it and drive it, enjoy it and don't tell anyone one it's got a salvage title, take it to the race track and drive it like it is worth nothing. If that's what you think a salvage title is worth.
I'm wondering about the frame that pic of the engine has that crosswise black piece between the hood struts out of alingment.Donor might be the idea. Ck the prices of a frame and a body from FFR vs a kit. might make this a deal!
I have not seen the car, it is not in Riverside so I know not much more than you. Surgio, I have several salvage cars also, great to drive for the cost. Race car would be fun. thanks for the info guys/gals etc.
