Some dumb insurance company totaled that car because it looks like it was hit by a falling tree limb.  That car is in nice shape, and they totaled it. :(  Yet they believe it truly has 41k on it, not likely, and they estimate the value at $7,500.  They can not get their ideas about this car straight.

Think about this: If the car is worth $7500, it would be totaled with $5625 worth of damage. The proper insurance repair would be replacement of the roof panel and possibly the door. So you strip off the vinyl top, remove the front and rear glass, pull all the trim, cut off the old roof, weld on the replacement roof, reinstall the trim, glass, and vinyl top, paint the door if it was damaged. That will be expensive to repair.

Could it be repaired for less? Yep, this would be a great rebuilder.

Its all part of the grand plan to get the older stuff off the road.
