I agree with Alaskan T/A on this one. I think that the floors and frame rails might still be good on this one. The firewall looks to be indecent shape too. That is more than some of the "restored" cars out there have original. This would be a massive undertaking only to have a questionable car when done.

If the original car is reconstructed,there is nothing questional about it. It would be a reconstructed car.

Would it be reconstructed or repaired? Those two words, though similar in meaning, are perceived different in our hobby...just saying. It is through the diligence of the members of this board that the potential new owner(s) are kept in the loop as to what this cars history was.

If it is ever restored/rebuilt/rebodied, it will have a salvage title.    There is a place for it, and it will carry the identity of the original VIN.   It will be worth something less than a car with better history and worth more than a clone not carrying the Superbird VIN.

I got an email from one of my contacts at the NICB, he said the VIN has been indexed.

So if the car is 'reborn' it will set off a red flag in the legal system.   cheers

If insurance has paid off on it as a total loss, (he was insured),    I don't know how the buyer could possibly get a clean title.

You can buy a car back from the insurance company even after being totalled, but title should be salvage.

Salvaged titles can be washed out by going through different States to title the car......just as a lot of scammers and car lots did after hurricane Katrina passed through

Seen this happen in 3 different occasions up here in Minnesota. The insurance companies allowed the vehicles to be bought back by the original owners, but never acquired the original titles from the owners and therefore they never got stamped 'salvage'!  Shocked

I wasn't implying that title washing is legal, I was just pointing out that it's all way to easy to get the "salvage" removed from the title paperwork and then just pawn the car off to someone that not suspecting that the car has had a "checkers" past

You should have seen all the cars we got up here to inspect after hurricane Katrina and the last big floods of Texas

Anyone know: is Milt planning on buying the 'Bird back?  An earlier post (possibly the other thread) said he was planning to rebuild both cars he lost.
