I gave a some thought and then dismissed it because of the "mechanical" notation and no further information, and no ability for me to inspect it. If you bought it to "own" is and drive the wheels off it for a few years, would not be bad to stick some $ into it. But if you were thinking about flipping it, maybe worth $2K +/- done. Unfortunately these don't command Toyota prices. IIRC RXINHED has a similar one but in great running condition for sale for around the $2K +/- price. It would be a good enough deal to someone local for $850 in my opinion.I think that $2k price represents the 'buy it now' option.
The ability to place a bid seems to still be available, though there does appear to be a hidden reserve threshold now, which I would guess is likely somewhere around that initial $850 mark.

That said, if you were in the market and not too far away, even at $2k + Copart fees, it's still not a bad buy.
The big risk is what the 'Primary Damage: MECHANICAL' designation actually entails... Could be something as simple as a faulty fuel pump or a fully blown up motor.
If you could acquire it, address any mechanical issues and catch up on deferred maintenance (fluids/tires/etc) for say $4k, you'd end up with a tidy pick up.
It'd also be a perfect candidate for a diesel swap...https://delicaforum.com/index.php?threads/official-hyundai-d4bf-engine-purchase-thread-december-2020.3038/
