Wow, forget back luck...TWO claims each over 12k plus various others? I'd maybe think about it for half but would take it to a VERY reputable bodyshop to have it thoroughly checked out FIRST.
People will believe what they want to believe whether fact or fiction.
'tis most frustrating when they aren't open to see and/or learn which is which.

Sure. If seller accepts $4k (in which you are already taking a big risk)

Man for 4K wouldn't it be fun? Like just to mess around with. I'm tempted to offer, its listed for 11k which made me laugh I was expecting a clean example until I asked for carproof Face With Tears Of Joy

Not to forget

Seller said dealer didn't show him carproof when he got the car. Paid 20k 2.5 years ago

I don't believe it. People don't buy used car without checking and doing due diligence.

This car has been hit on almost every body panel. I wouldn't touch it unless it was free.

I'd buy it as a parts car, if the mechanicals are still salvageable.
A high accident frequency and plenty of short term owners tells you how people treated that car.

Some poor sole will buy that car unknowingly.
