Came across a 2000 Mustang
3.8 V6, Full Eibach 1.5" suspension, off-road X-Pipe, Magnaflow mufflers, has a 65mm BBK TB, full BBK CAI, and comes with a new unmarried Bama x3 tuner. Plenty of goodies like Bullitt wheels, stock wheels, all the stock parts that were upgraded and a clean title.
Here's the kicker. It was in a front end crash prior to the winter season. The owner states he has not seen any structural damage to either the pillars, unibody or either subframes. It was a good enough whack to set the airbags off. My dad tells me that typically when the airbags go off it means there's structural damage, but I've seen otherwise a few times. Including a crash that he himself was in 2 years ago in his dodge neon. Wrinkled the subframe but the airbags didn't go off. So opposite in that case. Anyways, this would be my first crashed car purchase. And my first 1999-2004 style mustang. Where would i look for damage that would determine weather or not to buy it? I don't mind having to cut the front subframe off at the firewall and having a clean one welded back on, because I know a very skilled licensed automotive frame welder.
