Usually after a flood, people will get the interior detailed to cover up the water odor etc... Try to get a look underneath trim peices where a prfessional detailer would miss. I'm guessing that is why the interior looks so good....

its worth 2500. it will need at least $2000 in work to make it in "good" condition for KBB....but after a fresh paint job and new carpet it would be a pretty sharp looking car.

i dont see why we think it has flood damage...it is just dirty and was never garaged

Rear bumper has been repainted, and at LEAST the engine has been immersed in water. I'll put money on it.

Run very far away.

Elmo..do a carfax.. I don't see the water immersion that these guys do.

Someone answer up as to why they believe flood car..please.. don't say because..He'* thinking seriously about it and needs hard facts/info.

My 97 was looked the same under the hood...horrible, dirty..disgusting and never cleaned. I hit it with cleaner, filled the overflow that was pathetically low like that one and it treated me well since.

Yes..I did the valve cover gaskets..they were shot. Then I PM'd the intake gaskets and have had a reliable car since. It'* an ugly ducking at the moment. (and good luck finding MT body panels in a yard)

The shot of that engine looks identical to a car that has been immersed in water for at least a couple days, then the water receded slowly. The film is identical all the way up to the maxifuse relay center.

I'm not saying it IS, but it LOOKS like a car that has been in a ditch for awhile.

I have shots of Highlanders engine dirty that resemble this one. PB just decided to maintain things while I was about to get the image.
