CB750 Cut and shuts are not Kosher and that's the only way that can be economically repaired; MAYBE ... IF the driveline wasn't pushed forward by the rear cradle.

Back in the day I knew a schlub who would cut and shut 2 Mustangs together. One completed car was in an accident and broke in half killing the driver. That is why they won't pass reinspection in many states.

jbawden Imagine a world full of CB750 thinking...I think we would still be living in caves because anything else is too hard!

CB750 It is a parts car for a repairable hit front with a good amount of parts left over to sell.

People that don't have collision knowledge/experience always say it's fixable; which is true if you want to spend twice what it is worth with a clean title and still have a rebuilt wreck that will never be 100% right.

jbawden Not sure if anyone follows vehcor on YouTube, but this is a project he could/would get back on the road. Not practical for an insurance company or production body shop, but if you have access to all of those tools and the ambition/skill it can be done. Not saying it's easy, but its possible given ideal circumstances.

TheMealOnWheels Thanks, didn't realize there were multiple threads. I'd seriously have to think about it at $10K! I mean, there is that much in parts left for sure, but you'd work hard to get it. Definitely worth it for someone wanting to build a project car. Certainly a pass for me at the general public amount.

What's the buyback price? And are you into wrenching? That looks like a fantastic donor. I mean, the brakes, wheels, trans, engine, wiring harness, seats... that thing is ripe for swapping into something wild!

That number was only for him and a one shot deal.
