Smile Mustang GT Premium 2006

Hey Guys,
So I'm a junior in High School and I found a really nice 2006 Mustang GT. The entire car is perfect, with under 50,000 miles on the engine.

HOWEVER the car was broadsided, and I believe both rear sides need to be replaced along with the rear axle which is in half.

How much could all the work run me? I plan on buying the axle for about 600 hundred dollars so what do you think i'll pay a body shop to install it?


And how do I go about both rear quarters?

You are better off finding another mustang than replacing the quarter panels.

Agreed. If it's bent up then the performance will almost certainly be permanently compromised, let alone the safety. I'd pass, personally. Save up & get a nicer one - will be the better deal in the long run.

I could understand a younger guy wanting a newer Mustang and the only way in is with a repairable.

How much does the seller want for this car?

Looks like you will need a visit with the frame alignment shop, both rear quaters & a rearend. I would start calling the Auto Body Shop Schools.....the teacher/students love Mustang projects like this!!! Your expenses wouldn't be that much....the school supplies most of the materials. Rear quaters are $500 a side, rear bumper cover $150 and you have a rear for $600....the school might get the quaters cheaper. It's worth looking into if you get the car cheap. Good luck

It probably also has a salvage title, otherwise the owner would of had it fixed by insurance instead of sitting in the driveway.

Lots of work and if it's not done properly, would be a huge headache in the future. I would still pass IMO.
