Part of me wonders if just needs new panels, a windshield and some airbags...

Heres the Compnine if anyone is interested, pretty decent options

Definitely not a total loss. Though insurance company probably totaled it due to age. A hi hit is always good as far as repairs go. Gonna make someone a real nice car. Worth buying to fix or for parts depending on price IMO.

If I had the extra money, id really consider throwing a bid down.

Yeah man, that's a repairable. Front clip, radiator, AC condenser, a few odds and ends underhood, touch up the front edges of the doors, new windshield, and you're on your way. I bet you could put that back together for $1200 if you did the labor yourself (except the windshield).

You got that right! Someone could be member of our illustrious band of luniics for 'round $3-4k
Thats not bad, considering its a '96 Limited WB4 (tow pak?).... with ONLY43k miles!

Think about what any reasonable person would ask for that car when it was off lease @ 2 & 1/2 -3 years old...



If The dollar stars were aligned I'd be on it.

Looks to me like the radiator support is mashed against the front of the engine. Probably need a few pieces replaced there as well. Still, it should be an easy fix. Since it is in MI I wonder how the underside looks.

There are several nice looking B Bodies on that site.

One of these COPART places is near the Pull A Part I frequent, think I may have to register.

If anyone here decides to pursue that car, kindly post up so we know and don't go bidding against you.

How do they figure that a bumper will cost $3300 to fix?

Not sure. You can see circled areas on the hood in the pics. Perhaps they are putting paint, cleaning, etc into the price. Either way I don't see it costing anywhere near that to repair. I wish the one near me only had light damage but it took a hard RF corner hit and has suspension damage.

You guys need to remember, roadmaster bumper covers are no longer available new. When my wagon got kissed by a Stratus back in 2008 or 2009, it was basically an automatic total. So you might consider buying and stashing a good bumper cover if you find one in a junkyard.

Wow, that WB4 is really fixable (if its not a rust bucket). Frame didn't even get touched...

Would have been a good one for a RMSedan front end swap....Lmited Cloth and LDM. Im in love Smile

Tony Desactus still has a front clip for sale, and he is motivated to sell. Maybe someone here is feelin' ambitious Question

The roady is up to $175.00, Tony had the clip at $400, but he would go down.

I wish I had the time off.... and the ambition.

This only cost me $800 to fix, and that's only because I had to buy a $600 running parts car, since I couldn't find the parts...took about 9 hours total with hand tools and scissor jacks in the driveway.

Guys - given the state of my wagon, I have every intention of buying this car - and I also already have my very own parts car to poach from.

Thanks for the neads up Mike!

OK, I'd like to have it - but not badly enough to pay $150 just to register to bid. I'm absolutely not going to be able to bid on that car.

John, if I was you, I'd roll the $150 into the total cost of getting the car and then buy it.

John, Get a hold of Fred, maybe he's registered? Maybe he can buy it? Just a thought.
If you go for it, I'll send you a beige drivers air bag, free of course.

Mike, I'll chek with Fred. Thats a great idea. Thanks.

Joel, if it was a $150 buyers fee, I'd eat it - but paying $150 just to BID against the rest of the world on an otherwise VERY nice wagon that would bring a VERY high dollar - well that's not for me.

No I don't already know. And if you have something that I'd be interested in, it may motivate me to throw the For Sale sign on my wagon.

Oh it totally is, but it's not a totally uneduacated one. Wasn't there a real clean, low miles wagon that just went for like 8 grand or something like that in Florida? Either way, $150 for a bidders card is what sorts out the turds - and I got sorted.
