    Damaged DTR for sale

    In brief, my 2004 DTR, 56K miles, in minor accident front left (photo). My insurance company decided to total out the car, mostly because parts not available from Mercury/Ford. I will be negotiating with insurance company about what they will pay me. Forum member here mentioned that I might be able to then buy the car from the insurance company. Title would show car as totaled. What I want to know is if there is anyone in the New England area that would be interested in buying the car, either to repair, or for parts. I have decided that accident was a sign that it is time for me to give up the car. Mark-Marauder-A2.jpg

    Was there a lot of damage not visible in the photo? Just looked to be a busted headlight, turn signal assembly and scratched up bumper. Doesn't seem right to allow an insurance company to total a car that could be repaired with aftermarket version of those parts still found through eBay and bodywork/paint job. So depressing that these otherwise clean-title cars are being taken off the streets with little interest in saving them.

    Best,

    Once you have more info post up what you want for it. I'd think you'd have no problem selling it.

    All - I will be going to the bodyshop on Monday, and will then have a clear idea of extent of damage (if any) beyond what is visible in the photo. P.S. New (three months) front tires.

    UPDATE: David Mark here 508-633-8061 damark51@gmail.com. Finally got answer today (Jan 30) from insurance company that car not being totaled out, so I can sell as is with clean title. I have received interest from several people. Working out how to manage this. If you want to see photos, go to maynardlifeoutdors.com and to Jan 13 entry. I also have a very detailed work estimate from the bodyshop, which I will be able to share with interested people before they make an offer. Car is at shop in town a bit west of Concord, MA. Top line details from the bodyshop estimate of $$5,432 are parts $$3,791. Body labor $995, paint labor $405, tax $237. Anyone who has access to an undamaged front end, especially if red, will be way under this. All the parts that were removed to assess the damage are with the car. Aside from the accident damage, 56,000 miles, not a smoker. rest of car in good condition. This has been parked outdoors since 2006, so some paint fade. Any questions email or call me direct.

    Someone is going to get a decent deal and fix her up. Wished you were closer. If you cant strike a deal with any local buyers, i could have it shipped to kansas city. Depends on price of the car.

    I decided at age 70 I could no longer drive the car as it deserved to be driven (a decision my father made a long time ago about his Porsche 911). Also, bodyshop had mad the estimate, but said it was not intending to try to find parts, given that Ford/Mercury had nothing to offer in way of parts. I am taking the insurance money (bodyshop estimate minus my deductable) and selling car as is. All parts taken off the car saved and go with car. If serious, contact me quickly.
