At the asking price, or anywhere near it, I would be concerned about the body damage. The OP has indicated he does not mind the body damage but the question is what other damage or problems are not being disclosed by the seller? A PPI is strongly recommended.

The fact that the car is being sold by this dealer means that it was traded in and then wholesaled off because it was known to have problems that the taker of the trade didn't want to bother with. This turns on all sorts of red lights for me.
