I just did an appraisal on one with the highest best & all options, premium package, 80k miles, no damage and the quote is $5700-7000 without frame damage which by the way had to also have body damage too, So I think your a making a mistake, not mention a once salvage car title is a always salvage title it stays with the title for ever you will not ever get a 1/4 of that back, in the real world not counting this created reality of sellers trying to make you believe they have the best deal, this is a bad deal, Its a salvage/rebuild title only worth $2500 in parts. Its a once parts car, a project, Someone trying to fool other into buying their dung.

Not a good decision. Stay away from anything like that, or vehicles that have salvage or rebuilt title tags.

Stay away, DO NOT PURCHASE IT...

Stay away unless you have it looked over by a mechanic and body shop. Frame damage can be anything from minor, like damage to the radiator support or severe damage to the structure.
