Wrecked 92 Wagon with L05 and towing package

1328 Views 12 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Sinister
Someone slammed into me and destroyed my ‘92 wagon. It had the 5.7 TBI, a brand new transmission, the tow package, all the best stuff, and 102k miles. The junkyard wants to buy it, but this car is my baby. I am a college student and have no way to fix it myself, but I really don’t want it to die. Is anyone interested, or does anyone have any suggestions for where to find a replacement? Really want another with the tow package and everything. Attached below are all of the pictures, including the front frame damage. If someone who actually has the time and money to fix it were to buy it, I would be much more pleased than just junking my poor ol’ gal.

It’s already been taken to the junkyard, but I haven’t given them my title yet. Have like 20 days left.

Man, that really sucks! I do wish I had the money and wherewithal to take er' off your hands and bring it out to AZ.
If there's not frame or major firewall damage, that's totally fixable IMO. The whole front clip (fenders, core support, hood) can all be unbolted, removed, and replaced with some from another junkyard car (maybe with rear-end damage).

Unless you have space constraints, I say keep it. It could be a fun project and a good learning experience.
The junkyard will probably give you chump change for it anyway.

Edit; I do see the frame now, sorry. I'd still work with it personally, but I totally understand if that would be something you wouldn't want to deal with. It's not a crazy amount of frame damage anyway, there's a good chance that a good collision shop could take care of the frame.
At the very least, please save as many interior parts as possible. They are getting near impossible to find in good condition and could be swapped over to a new one if need be.
