Default Radiator Core Support

I need some opinions on this radiator core support, I'm thinking real seriously about buying it, it's going for $85 at a Wichita KS . Salvage yard supposedly out of an 82 Malibu, but going to be installed in my 84 El Camino I've pointed out some areas of concern that I see but it's hard to tell on my phone, the bracket under the latch assembly is folded up where I believe it's supposed to be straight down, and at the bottom left and right side where the condenser sits looks a little flared out a bit, does anyone see anything else I should be concerned about, the seller claims it's never been wrecked but who really knows Right.. Also can a core support be replaced without pulling radiator and condenser. Thanks in advance.

you're correct that tab is folded up and it's supposed to be straight down.most likely it got bent outta the way to remove the radiator/condenser easier.if it's been hit/bent it will be pretty obvious in person.look @the inside real well any wrinkles,hammer,torch marks will show.take a rag with you wipe it down sometimes dirt hides damage.take a look you can always pass if you're not comfortable w/it
