Now you need to get your second estimate from them as they NEVER offer full payout on the first time around. (It normally takes 3 discussions..)

Bring up the rarity factor and back it up with a Ford Certificate. Tell them you still have the original rims which will also increase the value.

I bet you could walk away with another $2,000 or your car back for free EASILY. All it takes is a small amount of effort in negotiations on your part. They are in business to make money and hope you agree on the first offer. This goes for any and all insurance policies. Auto, home, health, doesn’t matter.

Years ago my F150 with very light scratches from kids throwing rocks at it was estimated at $1750 for the repaint of a couple of panels. I walked away not 10 minutes later with somewhere around $3,600 after pushing their offer back across the desk twice. I brought up that the unique color was a tri tone metallic paint and I don’t remember all the scuffs on the windshield and the aluminum wheels... “Must have been missed by your estimator, good thing I caught that for ya”

Depending on the Insurance Company most likely they will retain the salvage. You have a fighting chance that its at your residence and storage charges aren't building. However most have an agreement or contract with Copart or IAA, then there's the branded title issue, they won't let you keep the car & hold the title from branding....I retired from the claims end of the Insurance industry, and have seen people retract claims just so they could retain their total loss.....Once you submit a claim they make all the decisions, including what they will pay.....Its a lost cause.....Good Luck......
