I have no interest in anything that has been submerged in salt water.  Every small nook in the car now has a pocket of salt.

Yep, they're a rust time bomb. You might save it by completely stripping the car and submerging it in one of those body dipping/stripping tanks and the followup anti-corrosive dip they do....but that sat water has been soaking into every body seam on the car....scary.

I am real surprised the owner let the insurance total the car out
Instead of keeping it

Perhaps it was at a shipping terminal like DAS and got flooded or something.

Salt or freshwater for me. Unless it's a parts car, I'll pass. There's good reason insurance companies total these cars.

I understand that salt water does nasty things to the wiring harnesses too.
