This 2017 Dodge Challenger Hellcat almost looks a bargain on the surface at a touch under $33k. Strap on a few panels and you’re seemingly good to go. Problem is it’s an insurance title, front and left side damage (how severe this is is unknown until inspected), airbags have been deployed and it’s clearly lost its dignity being in this shape.

As the car still drives, the wonderful Hellcat engine and the rest of the powertrain is the prized piece here which could be transplanted to a donor car, but a new hellcat engine can be bought for $21,750, so you’re looking here at what to do with the car as a whole. The car’s glass is intact and it only seems to be the front, hood and quarter panel door that is missing. This could indicate that the damage isn’t structural, but with any salvage title a thorough inspection would be needed. Replacement parts aren’t going to be cheap on a 2017 Hellcat which means you will need to source the parts at a discounted rate or flutter your eyelids at a dealer and see if you can get the parts cheap.

Being a Challenger Hellcat it’s too good to be trashed so it needs to be saved in some form or another, the question is can it be brought back to its former glory or its parts transplanted into another vehicle? Although it’s been marked for death with the salvage title, it’s really down to the negotiation of the asking price to dictate this car’s future as nearly $33k seems quite high. Currently the listing only has a ‘Buy it now’ so you will have to keep your eyeballs on this listing and maybe contact the seller directly to see what they would take.

You never know, this could result in a bargain Hellcat as long as you are aware that a resale value with a salvage title will always mean future lower prices and a bit of doubt and grey area on its structural integrity.
