Never ever buy a vehicle with a rebuilt or salvage title, you never know what kind of trouble your letting yourself in for ie, dogwalking, hidden fractures, water leaks,etc. I knew one guy that bought one and everytime he took a left turn just a little faster than normal the windshield popped out. So to answer your question the value should be scrap metal rates.

Typically a rebuilt title is worth 70% of the value with a clean title. That is how insurance companies set the value. That said, be very cautious, some cars are perfectly fine and repaired by quality shops but it is still a bit of a risk. Ask to see the original repair estimate so you can tell what had to be replaced and the nature of the situation.
