"The car was parked on the street and was struck on the driver's side rear by a drunk driver resulting in body damage that prevents the car from being driveable."
"This is a 4x4 that spent most of its life up north so it is very rusted. The rear window recently got broken and it isn't driven enough to warrant further repair. "
"It's not pretty, but it works well and tows everything I need it to tow. I'm just trying to get a ballpark estimate on what an old, heavy metal, hard working, hard worked truck might be worth."
"The vehicle runs, but it sounds a little rough. The interior is all intact, but it's very very dirty. Exterior is free of rust, and only has a few minor dents about the size of a quarter."
