Default Is this worth any $$$$$$

I'm out in my garage today removing the front end (fenders,bumper cover and radiator support) on my '91 'cause the guy I sold them to is picking them up Monday. Anyhoo, is the rest of the car worth disassembling? Doors,trunk lid, what interior bits are worth anything? I don't want to waste to much time taking stuff off if I can only sell it for peanuts. I'm keeping both front and rear subframes and stock drive train is long gone. I'd like the car outta my garage by next weekend.
I guess I'd like opinions on what parts are worth keeping to sell?

The trunk lid, doors, mirrors and rear mudflaps are probably worth something.

Anything wrong with the Chassis? Hell of a waste if there isnt.

Are you short on ignitors? I got a spare in the garage, if you really need more.


Everything on that car is worth something to some one if you wanna take the time taking it all apart and selling it. As a whole it's not worth much unless you find someone wanting to build a racecar.

Next year I may need to right front arms and steering rack when I start on the V8 car.

If you look closely at this pic you will know what the car was destined for. Unfortunately it has been gathering dust in my garage for over 3 years. Time to move on.

It appears I don't have enough posts to PM. Since this has turned into a selling thing could one of the mods move it to the classifieds?

Thanks,Jim

Id say you could sell just about every single part of that car on this site. Is the steering wheel any good?

Ok, I am following on the convo and figure that subframe is intended for a V8 swap, but what exactly did you have to alter. I notice the Motor mounts are off and there seems to have been some reshaping as well, but what all had to be done?

Also, i have both subframes, please don't waste a good chasis, we can save that car, where are you located? I may buy the whole chasis from you.
