MonsterExport.uk - Benefits of Restoring a Salvage Car
A salvage car is one that can be taken advantage of when an individual cannot afford a quality branded car but has the skills and the inspiration to build one from parts he can work with diligently. Salvage cars are a rebuilder's wealth of materials to work with to recreate vehicles that can be collected or sold for less than the price of original models.
When an insurance company declares a car to be a total wreck and is assessed to have lost seventy percent its total market value from the time it was in good running condition, this is a salvage car. The car is then given a salvage title and the owner is given a buy back option in case he would still like to keep the car.
Major car accidents as well as floods can greatly reduce a car's overall market value and this classifies them as non-repairable. Cars that are in this condition are a treasure trove of opportunities for the avid mechanic who wants to build his own car from spare parts of original models. The best option is to take two or three cars that were "totalled" and use the spare parts from all these, as the chances of having more spare parts to work with are higher.
Once a car has been rebuilt or restored to its original running condition, the next step is registration which will take some work if the engine is already classified as salvaged on paperwork; this brings the value down considerably. There are options around this, though, which may require some legwork in trying to find the same engine model from another salvage car which possibly was uninsured and therefore still holding a clean record. The tracer for these engines are the engine vehicle identification numbers which determine the overall market value of the vehicle, unless it is resold to an overseas buyer, giving it an entirely new record for registration. Also, there is the more costly option of purchasing a brand new engine to achieve the clean registration record, classifying the vehicle as brand new.
Salvage cars can also be cars that were previously stolen and then recovered by the police, with parts missing that thieves may have taken before they abandoned the car. Usually, the engine is one of the first things that are missing in these cases, and if the engine is still intact, the VIN is already blacklisted. The whole body however is most likely in excellent condition, and once the owner decides that this is no longer of use to him, this makes another new owner very, very happy.
Most people refuse to purchase salvage cars because the common belief is that the repair will end up costing more than getting a lower-priced brand new car. For the enthusiasts who are also confident mechanics, these junk parts and whole body parts of a car are just waiting to be re-designed to perfection, and the cost is nothing to them as they save a lot on labor cost as they will be handling the machine themselves.
Auto recyclers usually buy salvage cars on auction, and the good parts of the vehicle can be useful treasures for the interested rebuilders. Junk shops also profit from this venture, as parts can be resold for less than regular prices at an automotive maintenance store.
For those enthusiasts who really are determined to have their own classy model of a quality vehicle, this is the best option to take as there are times they will stumble across an almost immaculate looking salvage car that sells at that bargain price only because it is missing a few parts. The time and patience to research and look around can really pay off big time when one takes the extra effort.
