Trying to impose client supplied pdf with bad media box

I have attached a problem file. I cannot get a configuration using Optimize, Resize, Impose, to get this file to impose on an 18x12 size sheet, 2up with a .25" gutter. I understand that you can clean up the media box with Pitstop or PDF Toolbox, but can Core fix the media box and impose it cleanly?

Oops, can't attach a file. I will explain.

 

It is a pdf, 8.5x11 with bleed. 

 

The trim box is 9 width x11.5 height with an X offset of .44 and a Y offset of .6.

 

The media box is 18.67 width x 12.67 height.

 

As you can see, the media and trim box are messed up. Anything Core can do without me going in and manually fixing this?

If you have Cut Marks on the page you can fix it with the Optimize component: Define Page Geometry Based on Cut Marks
