SVT Focus rebuilder
 
I hope there are some body guys on here that could answer some questions for me I have this 2003 SVT. I believe it needs a tail put on it. The car was backed into a tree with the LR. Is it a very reasonable task? Does anyone have a ballpark estimate on cost? I really want to save it. It has a lot of sentimental value to it. Any input is appreciated.

uugh, that's pretty gnarly. I would take some pics to the local body shops but it will probably cost about as much as the car is worth. I know sentimental value is always high but it may be time to just look for another one.

Sorry to say but that thing is probably totaled

The car is definitely totaled. I am approved at my bank for $3000 to fix it. I was just curious if anyone on here had any input. I am gonna go talk to some builders this weekend and see what turns up.

Yeah that looks pretty bad, I'd find a cheap car with a decent body and do a body swap.

Geez. Use the 3k and find a nice shell to swap it all into. I dont think any body guy out there would even want to try it

Nice wheels! Are those for sell?

^^ Haha ... and the vultures begin to assemble.

Back to your car, yea, I agree with everyone on the fact that you should look for a replacement car/shell to put your parts into.

Or put it on a downpayment on another SVT ... shouldn't be but 6-7K for a well taken care of one at a dealership.

I say part that one out and use the 3k from the bank plus possibly 3k you make from parts to buy a newer svt with lower miles, and make it your new baby

Either this, or a massive part-out to pay for another one.
