67 gto wrecked on 1st drive after restore

This is a damn shame. An old farmer down the street from me has this 67 gto and just got it back from a restoration. motor has 5 miles on it. while taking it for one of its 1st drives a girl smashed into the back of it at a stop sign (while texting)!!!car has been sitting in the barn like this for the past year. I have gone over there at least a half dozen times to ask about it. Today the old guy was actually there. I looked over the car. appears to be very nice minus all the damage. I can pick the car up very cheap. at the very least it will need both quarters, deck lid, tail panel, roof and trunk repair. and possibly a frame. the title was never branded salvage so its still clear. motor sounds very good. what is ur guys thoughts? I have pics but the site will not allow me to upload them. says security token missing

What did he do? Pocket the insurance check? Or no insurance, or what? If you can get it cheap enough, I would think the interior and front clip with the doors could all be parted out for a profit. Or repair the damage, drive and/or sell.

All will depend on whether the frame is bent and where.... to that add in new 1/4's, wheelhouses, trunk pan, tail panel, tail light assemblies, deck panel, trunk lid and hinges, gas tank, rear glass, Rear bumper and bright work, full/partial paint.

If the frame isn't bent then and you can get it cheap, it is worth restoring. If frame is bent and price is cheap and you are into parting it out for sale it will be worth it. Remember though it may take a while to sell some of the parts.

Even if the frame is bent, it looks as if a good body shop with a frame machine should be able to straighten it. Hell, my dad was a body man and I've even seen him straighten quarter panels like that. I'd buy it for cheap!!
