I would and wouldn't…here’s why…someone died, that’s terrible yes so if it’s from a heart attack and had a small fender bender with it or committed suicide in it…I wouldn’t care, I would buy it. But if the car was destroyed and needed a full chassis today…..there is no way technicians are that smart to ensure the car is as strong as the first day built. For other types of cars, maybe but the F40 is a road race car from the 80's. Sorry, no buy for me on that point.
Now the last point, if the car was still being produced then it could go back in the line and have the current technicians who work on each area go in for the repair then yes I would even if it was a full new chassis build up. Why? Because it’s still fresh in their minds how to build it. But having a young guy rebuild a car from the 80’s who only had a poster of it on his wall, well I’m sorry….he doesn’t know shit about shit, you know the little things they learned over the production build period.
