You should have a mobile mechanic check both cars for you before purchasing either one. The choice can then be made using mechanical knowledge and not looks alone. If you would like, a certified technician from YourMechanic can go to where the cars are located and conduct a pre-purchase inspection to ensure you are getting the best car for the price.
