As you pull this car apart, we would appreciate pictures of what you find. I am very impressed the front windshield is intact. Car looks to have withstood a major whack without intruding into the passenger compartment. Thanks for sharing

That's not really that hard of a whack^^^

Looks more like the vehicle went under a box truck or lift gate, then either pulled away or was deflected by the impact. It was high enough up, this could have been at any multitude of speed, 25-45 mph with or without braking attempt. This sort of localized clip really just riped up the exterior panels, and not actually absorbed a solid impact. Most important to note, the bumper cover is untouched for the most part, all impact was in the upper fender/hood. At least that's how I see it.

Could be some really bad frame damage you have not seen yet until you get it. They will salvage for that reason as well. Looks can be deceiving not looking bad.

^This. Frame damage most likely. Usually on the auction sites it will give some sort of indication of why it's salvaged or for sale etc.

Great price! I went up on the iaai website and see quite a few mashed Maxs. If you are handy, this could pay off fine!
