One of the early BCI's , not weathering the desert climate to good , obviously been treated hard by mine workers.

neg at $30,000 but looks like a lot of money to repair .

From what I can see
1 new front side window
2 door looks damages at bottom
3 bull bar pulled out from body
4 side bin damage
5 internal damaged to dash and floor
6 what is that cracking to siding under that perspex replacement window.

Note that this BCI has now sold - why you want to buy such a poor example as this is beyond me
