2000 mustang... Crashed

Hey guys/gals
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.

Only way would be to drive it. If it drives straight then it should be alright. Look at the subframe and make sure it looks straight. Check the roof for ripples and uneven gaps between body panels. The horns on the front are slanted so don't let that fool you. You can always get a measuring tap and make sure the engine bay from each side of the "horns" if it is square maybe. Are the horns damaged?

I'm not positive on the extent of the damage but i know even the radiator holds coolant still and the main bend is just the driver side fender is pushed back and rolled. I will post the provided pictures asap

Does it drive straight? Do the doors open and close without hitting panels? If so, the damage is negligible. My car ones used a telephone pole to slow itself down. You would never know it unless you popped the hood and saw the little dent on the cross beam by the radiator. Not a trace of evidence anywhere else.

It looks like the panel just got pushed back. Honestly, as long as it drives straight who cares?

That's what i was thinking. I mean i have no problem replacing the majority of it but I'm new to the 99-04 style so i don't have an idea on where damage is too much to be worth repairing. The price is a steal especially for all the goodies that come with it and i could easily fix it and flip it for a profit of well into the $2500 margin. Super low miles too
