My Marauder wheels are in my garage stored in the big bags from the tire store. I have been running the Michelin X-Ice on those rims for a while now.
The MM wheels are in great shape.

While not a Marauder, had a similiar accident with my 2003 Crown Victoria LX Sport ...



*More -HERE-
Was fortunate enough to have full coverage. Insurance (AAA) paid for all associated co$t$ (towing, etc.) and repairs with no out-of-pocket $$$

The only issue I had was finding NOS, OEM parts. In the case of Marauder parts - corner light assembly and associated wiring harness. *Got fortunate on eBay®. With the exception of header panel (obsolete from FoMoCo), all other parts were OEM.

Total repair bill was $6900(+-). Result ...

Looks good. $6900. More than the value of my ride.
How does the “buy back” scenario work? That is an open question to anyone that is well-versed.

I agree that it’s fixable, either for you or someone else.

To buy it back insurance will take off some of the money they were going to give you. Say they offer you $8k, if you want to keep the car it will be $7,500 instead.

This just in.
If I keep my MM the Ins. Co will pay $5407.00.

If I sign it over to them they pay me $7234.23

Do any of you know of a cash buyer resource for slightly damaged Mercury Marauders?
If so please let me know ASAP.

Thanks in advance.

I've seen more damaged to a car just being backed out of their owners garage. That car is definitely fixable

These are EASY parts to replace. There's no structure there. The DTR I bought and fixed a few years ago now belongs to a member here.

Go get an estimate from a body shop to fix it. That will give you a better negotiating point with your insurance company who are low- balling you. Someone here just got over 9K for their really totaled car.

My Understanding

If you keep it, you will get a salvage title. This usually means after you fix it you will have to get it inspected (police in Maryland I think). Take lots of pictures of before, process, etc. so you can show it was fixed right. The value of the car will now be less because of the salvage title. So, depends how much it is worth to you. Good news if you fix it you shouldn't worry so much about driving it.

How many miles? Sell it to someone outright for the difference if you don't want to deal with it. If you were closer, I would probably pick it up from you. Give it a chance ...

It would be a great project for my 16 year old son.

My brother just had his 88 Grand Marquis rearended. They totaled it but he bought it back and got a salvage title. Fixed the bear minimum and had a brake light test and other things done to get a normal title again. Got a normal title now even though the car still needs a new rear right quarter panel replacement. It can be done.
