Purchased car, received title and car was damaged

QuestionCountry: United States of America
I purchased a car in Indiana in full with cash. Asked for the title repeatedly and the dealer kept giving excuses until they finally sent it a day before I could return the car if I wanted to. I received the title and it said it was a flood damaged car which means it has almost no value. I asked to return the car and they are giving me a hard time and saying I am trying to rip them off. After saying I was going to report them they said they would return 90% of the money only, which I think is still wrong. The paperwork did say it was a rebuilt car but it did not say flood damaged anywhere nor were we told that it was a flood car when we made the purchase. To me a Rebuilt car and a flood damaged car are 2 different things since a rebuilt car still has resale value where a flood car does not. What can I do about this?
