I totally agree ! These are NOT rebuildable cars. When we had the floods here in Atlanta a few years back I watched IAA hire a company to come in an clean the cars.
Some of the cars looked as if they were never in flood waters, They did that good of a job.
But after the car sat in the hot sun in the lot for a week or two waiting for its turn to be sold and you opened the door the moldy, mucky smell of river water was present.
Experienced buyers at the auction told me dont just walk away from buying those cars "RUN".
Now if you need fenders, hood, glass, doors, suspension componts then you might be OK. But other then that forget it!
Don't be fooled by those pictures, Those cars have been cleaned up to look good. More $$$$ in there pocket at the auction.

Please keep us informed of your progress. I was thinking more on your line as well. If one was to take the motor apart for inspection and clean it out, I don't see why it couldn't be a good deal as well. Though I do not have the experience of you or others with flood vehicles.

that was mine and definitely a sandy flooded car declared a bio-hazard due to its exposure to contaminants...
I wanted to buy it back to make it race car but getting sick from bio contaminants no thank you
So if you come across say hi for me, I miss "her" dearly but that's it
