Looks like it has been squeezed between two other cars.  Even the A-pillars have been bent, but otherwise the passenger compartment is quite complete. It looks like the safety structure has worked like it should.

Yes, it's seen on all pictures that the cockpit allways stays safe!

i am going slow. i repeared all cracks etc, mounted the skirts, and bonded the panels to it. i alligned it also with as much precision as possible. the front and back bumper is almost finished. as you can see i bonded 2 bumpers together to make 1. works wel (lot of work). it is almost finished.

then i only have to sand the car, aspecially the spare wheel bonnet. it has a bad paint on it. have to sand it all off.

here are two pictures of the car with bumper (nog finished bumper, it is just hanging loosly). and the sideskirt.




hope to have it finished before 9 september, then i can show the car on the smsc meeting

Contratulations on the progress! Smiley, it's very good to see your car getting back to shape. The alignment you have of the side panels looks very good.

 What about this:



It happend at 1990 and the owner of this car crashed this Murena at 90km/h to the Mercedes-Benz W123 and than into the tree. Because he has used the safety belt, he went from the car with nothing broken!!!

 Shocked

But notice again... both A-pillars are intact! He must have hit the tree on the left front of the car, thereby compressing the car from the side. This explains why the dash is completely broken and the otherwise intact steering column is just broken off. The left front wheel seems to have been pushed violently into the car, so the driver was lucky he didn't break a leg or two.

Thanks for sharing this photo, where did you get it from, Michal?

Come on krede... Everytime I see this pictures I am affraid about my Murena more and more and when You can see on Your own eyes what could happend, You will drive more carefully. Every next crashed (or tuned of course  Wink ) Murena means one Murena minus on this world. If one of those people, who saw this, will avoid crashing his car, this thread had sense.

I agree with you Lennart and it also shows that the Murena is a very safe car for its age!

Most of the time I think the Murena will be in better shape after an accident and subsequent restoration. At least, mine did, 5 years ago I hit some very hard bushes which broke the front spoiler. With insurance money and some savings (I spent over 3000 euro in total) I had the car resprayed and all the rubbers were replaced, the car looked as new! See http://www.matramurena.net/restoration/

My murena is back on the road a couple of months. still need to put the last touches to it.

Here is an old photo just after the first build ups.




and of last meeting (opening of carjoy).



The car is almost completely finished.

I did buy this thing. also fits here. A burned out murena:



I am going to use the car as a parts car.

why not repair.... see the other pictures here:
