Boy she was really hit hard. It will need a frame machine and some new rear frame extensions. Looks mostly rust free, not a bad price but a lot of work.

Marty,
Are you referencing the hit in the left rear quarter panel?

Yes usually when you see that buckling in the quarters it means that it was hit in the back buckling the frame and causing the sort of damage seen in the pictures. Plus the taillight panel is toast too. It all is fixable, just time and money.

Marty,
Ah hah, now I get your thinking. I thought that it might be a side hit vice in the rear.

I also thought it was a side impact but in one of the photos a small portion of the passenger side quarter is visible and it show the same damage.

There seems to be a weak spot on the frame, where it goes over the rear axle, that tends to buckle fairly easily with an impact to the rear of the car.

These Plasma bulbs from WCCC may have prevented such damage. (If one couldn't see these lights, they could be classified as legally blind)
