Ok. Thank you for the info. I buy salvage cars at the Copart auction to rebuild and resell and getting into my first Tesla so trying to learn what I could be buying from the very limited info I have.Vin decoders are not going to be accurate for a 2018 model 3. It will not have a LFP battery if that is the question, but they should be listing exactly what model it is (Standard Range (SR), Standard Range + (SR+) or Limited edition Mid range (LEMR). Those are the only "RWD 2018 model 3" vehicle options.
EDIT: As pointed out by @RayK I forgot to add the Long Range model (LR).
A 2018 will not have come standard with autopilot as that did not exist as a separate package at that time. It would have had (standard) either nothing, enhanced autopilot, or Full self driving as a software option. "what it had standard" from the factory is only really matters if you are buying directly from the original owner, though.
I can’t get that because it’s a salvage car at an auction. I will rebuild it.

Yes. Very good advice. We buy lots of salvage vehicles so may have to get a couple model 3’s to make a good one.If it is a salvage, and you are going to get into it, you might as well get to know your closest service center. They will be able to pull the vin and tell you.
There will be vin restricted parts for the rebuild you will have to go to them to obtain, so a good relationship with them will be part of your plan in any case. I am sure you have a similar experience for other brands.
It depends on where you live for what options you have with service centers. If you have a couple of options, you may find one to be more supportive than others.
