I worked as a Production Manager in a body shop for a while and I wouldn't be scared of that car. To fix any car that has had airbags deployed correctly the shop needs to replace every sensor related to airbags reguardless if the bag they controled were deployed or not. That is one reason why it was so expensive to fix this car.
From what I can see from those pictures the car has some side rail damage, needs two doors, 2-3 airbags and all the sensors, some work to the B-pillar, and they will need to paint half of the car. I'm sure I missed some work done but that doesn't look too bad. The body shop should be able to provide you with a copy of all the work done as well as frame measurements. They had that car on a frame machine before they started work for sure. If they did have to pull it some they can show you how much with before and after measurements.
With that said the price is way too high with a salvaged title. If you plan on owning and driving that car for quiet a few years it's worth looking at for around $8000. This is just a guess from taking a look at two pictures but that shop has around 4k just in repair work in that car.
Just know that it won't be worth much at all when it's time to sell it.

My bad, I didn't see that this was two months old when I posted. Sorry to bring this one back from the dead.

Air bags are over rated anyways. You don't need them...
