One of my friends just recently traded his 98 firebird for a 96 4.6 5 speed mustang. He got 3800 for his firebird on the trade which was in decent condition with 101k miles. The stang was 5900, and it has 141k on the clock. Mods on the stang are plugs and wires, cold air, and a flowmaster not sure on what series, and it has a stage 3 racing clutch. It has 4 black pony rims, and from what it looks like is new tires.

i took a better look at the car today and the paint doesnt match the other parts of the car on the right hand side with the front panel and door. I drove it to a body shop that my other friend works at (the owner of the stang doesnt know how to drive stick well yet) and we had it on the lift and the frame needs to be pulled out about a 1/4 of an inch on the front.

When my friend went down to buy this car, the dealer did not tell him anything about this, and he didnt meantion if it had a reconstructed or a salvage title etc.., and made him sign an as is paper.

Now my question to you guys is, did my friend get ripped off, and if so is their anything he can do about it?

In most states there is still a lemon law over certain amounts of money....If he did not divulge that it needed the frame pulled then i would say either he didn't know or he straight ripped him off....I know this much, i go to car auctions every tues and when you buy a car you own it period whether it breaks down in the parking lot or whatever..But if the frame is damaged and not disclosed, you can bring it back no questions asked....
