I have a Craigslist seller with a 2011 Ford E350 with 43k miles asking $9,500. The van has a salvage title. He’s very upfront in saying he repairs salvages a couple of times a year to resell, and that this one had a side impact (picture attached). He said there was no frame damage. He replaced the panels. Says he’s had it four months and that the doors open and shut perfect, and it drives straight.
This could be a great deal for my family of seven. Is there a smart way to go about this, or red flags I should look for?
