Your probably looking at that much just for the airbags. It looks like the pillars might be ok. The damage your seeing on the inside is from the airbags deploying. Price is pretty high for what's needed. You might find a better deal here: http://www.easyexport.us/vehicle-finder/salvage-cars/

If you decide to buy, I have an IOM hood I could sell and my front fascia will be coming off shortly as well.

Most Insurance companies won't even insure a salvage or rebuilt title.

Right so you will have a car you dump alot of money in to make it streetworthy and you wont be able to insure or warranty it...

In all honesty you should shop around for a good used car, they are asking what, 20k on ebay for that mess and you figure another 15k AT LEAST to get it back into shape.

You could be easily lookin at 35k and then you might as well just buy a used 2SS for that.

I think your looking at 5k-7k just for parts. Airbags alone are about 2k.

Too much for being salvaged. Take that $20,000 and put it toward a new one.

This car will never feel the same as new, no matter how nice it turns out.
Back in your mind you know it has been salvaged.
It is also a headache trying to sell it.
Stay away as far as possible.
This is a good car for parts, nothing more.
IMHO

Usually a totaled/salvage car by the insurance co means over 50% damage. You can find a used car for what you will pay to buy and fix. Mileage doesn't matter compared to this but it is your $$$, let us know how this works out.

The car is totaled. I counted all curtain airbags deployed and the steering wheel airbag deployed. Those are $2,500 EACH to replace. That puts you at $10,000 in airbag replacement alone. The headliner is shot as well. The creases in it are from the curtain airbag deployment but these fellas were nice enough to cut them away so you don't see them deployed. They were also nice enough to remove the deployed bag from the steering wheel as well.

The entire left side of the car is damaged along with the hood. No telling what the frame is like as others pointed out.

Run, don't walk, from this car. It's only value is in parts.

You should be ready to pay cash for it. I think it would be very difficult to find anyone that would finance a vehicle with a salvaged title.

I think insurance companies should be required to part out all vehicles it deems "totaled" or destroy them. They should not be allowed to turn around and sell everything together as an operational "lot" car.

Just the airbag deployment includes a pretty long list of repair parts.. Including the bags themselves, seatbelts, headliner, interior trim, SDM, etc, etc.. About 4-5k just to fix that! not counting any of the body damage, suspension, etc.. Def. not worth it at that price, in my opinion

If you look at it it needs all this parts.

2 fenders the passenger side is not siting wright with the bumper.
new hood.
3 airbags
new bumper
headlight
grill
lower grill
DRL
GFX in the front
GFX side rocker on the drivers side
core support
body work on the door and more.
lots of paint to all the parts
and last if the frame has to be fixed and it will need some work you and i know it, look at the hood it started to bend.

so to make this like a new car your looking at $17,500 to 22K add that to the price and you can buy a new 2013 or 2014 any way you want, this car is only worth $7500 max.

I may be wrong but if the airbags have deployed doesn't that cause something in the computer on the car to lock up and make it necessary to be replaced also?

And my .02 on this car, find another. Unless you can get a smokin deal on it and can use the parts on this one to upgrade another lower model you own on the cheap, I wouldn't spend a dime on it.

Exactly! I think you pretty much got all parts needed to repair it.

NO ONE can repair this car at home and make it roll right. You HAVE to have a frame puller to get the core support EXACTLY where it needs to be. I wouldnt pay a dime over $7500 and even then its kind of high. It being a salvaged title, the best thing is for them to part it out otherwise its junk. Only thing worth it is engine,tranny and rear axle. Trash the rest.

Airbags are only around 600 each, brand new, from the dealer. Where folks get these "airbags cost 2500 each" crap is beyond me. Headliner is around 350 new. Used curtain bags go for less than 200 each. Clock spring 40, 150 to reset the module and rebuild the belt tensioners, 250 for a used driver bag, looking at around 1300 or less to finish the interior with used parts. Core support is less than 300 new (GM), you will need to straighten or replace the left upper rails (I don't care what the ad says). Suspension may be tweaked, I would estimate around another 3000 in parts and paint to fix the body. So close to 4,500 if you did the work yourself and got a good deal on paint. Its an easy fix, and would make a nice car when finished, but you could buy a repaired prior salvage car for less than what you'd have into it. What I'm getting at is the car is overpriced by 5-6,000. Salvage SS's go for around 20,000 fixed.

You cannot get the upper frame rail and core support to be TRUE without it being on a frame puller. It doesnt need to be pulled, but frames have measuring posts to install on them to get the car absolutely true. Without it, The parts may not fit right or fit with ease once you install them. No one has a frame at their house unless you're a collision repair specialist and work from home.

Worst idea ever. Any idea what your insurance rates would be if all salvage cars were parts only? Repairables keep auction prices higher, your (already too high) premiums lower. Most states already have "parts only" stamps for the really banged up stuff tho, if that makes you feel better.

There is nothing wrong with a properly repaired, prior salvage vehicle. Especially this car, which should probably never been knocked on the head anyway.

Bought and repaired a salvage vehicle before. I will tell you to pretend you never saw this and walk away from it. It will be worth less when you go to sell it if you can find someone that will buy it. Always more wrong with it than you think. Save your money and buy one with nothing wrong with it.

If the INS CO totaled it out the damage is greater than 3/4 of the NADA value of the car. This car needs to be stripped and parted out it ain't worth fixing.
