    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,
    Eric

    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.
