Re: Buying a Statutory Write-Off
Be careful where the car has had the "shunt". It its been hit hard up the bum, check the diff hasn't climed inline with the front seats... it it has, count internals of the g/box as a chuck out item. It its been hit in the side, should all be good! Might have to check the door trims and such though. Sounds like you could do well selling the parts. Would actually be interested in what prices they are pulling.
Actually, I only work 3 blocks from Pickles Auctions in Melbourne... they're always doing damged cars + w/o beasts. I remeber a mint VX SS commy (bar RHS B Pillar touching centre consol) selling for just $11,000. Stat w/o but good engine, box and diff(ok, diff is shit even from new).
But still worth a look.
