Wow just realized that this is close to me. And In the next week or two I will be even closer with a car hauler. Wink I have no use for it, but willing to help out somebody if needed.

Since this was a Ford authorized product, Ford did all the front end crash testing (front clip, bumpers, dash and steering wheel) at first design. ASC modified the frame (aka roof) and it would make sense to test rear end collision and frame strength. It would appear this was a rear end collision as the front end is mostly unaffected. It looks like the console reinforcement did its job and only slightly deformed.

I have been in communication with the owner.. Here is his repy to me.."This was a new car. It was used as a crash test car. I purchased the car in a salvage yard in Tenn about twenty years ago as is.
1MHBP79M3EF620351. The third digit, H means an in incomplete car. This is what I was told about this car."
Is anyone going to get this vehicle? See what's left?
