It looked like the previous owner hit a tree. Very bad. I bought it from the bank as a repo. A 2 year project with a new front end clip & tons of other work. New DuPont base coat/clear coat in the original sunrise red. It has only 78,000 miles & is a pleasure to drive.

Sorry no pre-wreck pics. I don't know why I didn't take any.



The car looked like it had hit a tree or phone pole with the passenger side front. The frame was bent all the way back to the firewall. The windshield was broken as well as the motor mounts.



Basically the repair consisted of replacing all the frame & core support pieces from the strut towers forward. Repairs included the radiator, AC condensor, headlights, front fenders & front bumper & bumper cover.



The frame was straightened with my porta-power. Fortunately the sub-frame was not harmed so the front end came back into perfect alignment once the frame was straightened.



It's a lot of work for a 15 year old car, but hopefully will hold it's value over the years.
