Is this possible to fix???

Hello guys. I have been browsing through mustangs on the web and I have found one which is really cheap due to its damage. According to the seller, the car starts and drives but the problem with it is what you see on the image attached. My question is, is it possible to fix this damage and where can I buy parts that would be needed in order to fix the car?

Thanks for reading

Anything is fixable with enough money. Looking over the damage. It needs a lot of parts and I am not sure you can get them as parts or if you need a new body all together. A lot of that metal is welded together. DE ending on how cheap it is and if you can do body work. Most body shops will turn this type of job away. Best bet would be to buy it and one with no engine and build 1 complete car.

I wouldn’t buy it. If the seller isn’t going to fix it there must be a reason.


2014 Shelby GT500:Delivered 4/3/13, Black/Black stripes/Black interior, SVT Track Package, SVT Performance Package, JLT Oil Seperator, FRPP Resonator Delete, Syntha Max blue air filter, Revan Racing shifter bushing, Michelin PSS tires, Lloyd GT500 mats, and yes the stock Shelby seats.

I agree with the above, unless its cheap enough to part and your in to that sort of thing.

Even money says the owner's insurance company totaled the car and gave him a healthy settlement check. To repair the damage you have to have a deep pocketbook or enough skill in welding/body work to do it yourself. Most of those exterior body panels/parts can be bought online (some you might find from a wreck). If the price is right and you have a place to work, it is a viable project car. I have the tools & experience so I'd take it on, if the price was right.

The back, side windows have to come out and the quarter is 1200 bucks. Pretty involved project.

I would be pretty nervous about the rear suspension. Although it was't hit hard enough to break the left rear wheel.

If confusion is a destination . . . . we have arrived!

It's a pretty easy job and a fun project if you have tools and skill. I'd buy it for no more than 500.00.
