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.
