Someone in the body shop business with the ability to repair/paint the vehicle themselves while also getting parts at wholesale could probably make it worth it for themselves. Not saying it would be cheap to repair by any means but I think there's a significant amount of wiggle room in that "totaled" evaluation.
i write estimates for a living, i understand the ins and outs. But with that hit and the engine being in the back, you would have to REALLY want this car, and in the end if yer like most enthusiast owners, you will spend more than the car is worth.

Now with that being said, if you were to rebuild this strictly for racing, and not care about the aesthetics or details, it mite be worth it.
