Demand for Used Parts?
#1
I was just wondering what type of demand is out there for Used parts.

I am planning on getting rid of my 71. I just don't know if i want to try to get rid of it as a whole or part it out. It is pretty well tore down.
My work changed and i just can't devote the time to work on it like i wanted too. Thats why i bought my 72. Plus the 71 was an impulse buy and alot more work than i wanted once i started to tear it down.

The problem i think i will have is in shipping. I live in a small town and only have ups and fed ex. I am not sure who to use for the heavier items. I would think about delivering within a 200 mile radius or meeting within a 200 mile radius.

I really don't want to have to haul it to the junk yard as it would be a good project for someone and needing the room back in my shop.

Put it on craigslist you never know who's out there looking, maybey some guy in a neighboring town has been waiting for just an opportunity. I don't want to be nit picker but if you do advertise make sure you know what "NOS" means. I seen your post and thought you might have some NOS Parts. NOS Stands for New Old Stock. Parts taken off a car and resold would be used. There is a high demand for NOS parts but they have to be New Old Stock. There would be a market for used parts as well. If your looking to make space selling as a whole car makes sense to me and who knows it may still save a car that will live to drive another day. Just my thoughts, Dennis

Whatever '71 the car is, it is likely worth something.
For heavy parts go check http://www.freightquote.com
I had a 650 lb engine shipped 2500 miles, door to
door, and cost $310. Considering the price of the
never fired rebuilt 351C 4V, the shipping was a good deal.
