Hey Guys and Gals.

Well after 14 years and many good times.. Im sorry to say my baby is going to have to sell. The frame is GONE! and I have no intentions of installing a new one.

I have decided to part this car out.

I have never done this sort of thing before. Any hints or tips would be appreciated. I dont want to have to remove anything myself, but would rather that people interested in things take them off themselfs. I just dont have the time or desire.

Thanks

My only cautionary note is that if you let someone else remove their parts, they're going to damage $500 in parts taking out the part that they're paying you $15 for. I'd sell the whole car complete.
 
Yes Yes Yes :agree: sell it complete!!! Give another fellow a chance to fix it... :D sell it at your best , lowest price :nono: Parting it out will give you nothing but grief :mad: (2 cents)
 
Yes--the only people that part cars out are experts in that field. It's laborious, risky, time-consuming, and a pain in the arse. All for maybe a few points more than what the whole package goes for.

Whatever you do, good luck! It can be done, but I don't know if you can make more cash after all is said and done if you price out the time this will take (or hired labour.

When we were doing a Lemans Sport a few years ago, a friend with a wrecking yard dropped a parts car off in my yard. I could have everything I wanted for $300 and he picked up the stripped car. Best $300 I ever spent. Advertise it and someone doing a similar car would be more than happy to buy it.
 
Thanks for the input guys.. But I cant get jack for this car as is.

Frame is gone in the rear. So bad that the dif has almost nothing to hold on to.
Driver side A frame is broken(nothing new there)
Floor boards are almost gone!

As you guys already know.. Its pretty hard to come accross a 4 speed manual these days. I cant see me getting more than 5 grand for it as is.. but the trany is worth 3 grand on its own.

BTW.. interesting idea there Keith.. But I aint got a flat bed and Im not letting the Trany go for $300 lol

I have three M20 Muncies and I know what you mean about $300 transmissions. Good Muncies and Borg-Warner Super T10s are getting a lot harder to come by. If I were you, I would pull the drive train out of the car, along with anything else I can unbolt and scrap the rest. Kijiji advertising should net you some decent money.
