My brother settled for 25k on his big diesel truck and kept it for 7k (total 32k). It had salt water up to the bottom of the cab, but not a drop inside and it had no damage or fluid contamination.

He later sold the truck for close to 27k.

Been buying at salvage auctions for 42 years, first was a 66 Chevy G10 van. Paid $400, junk yard played games with paying for the title while holding my money, bought it from the ins company for $200 and got my $400 back.
