G8 Parts Car...., what are these worth parting out?
So, I found a couple cars for parts for my car. Curious what the parts are worth off of 'em if any of ya'll have a rough idea, new to G8s and LS so I have no idea really what some of this stuff is worth.
I don't think you have much there honestly. I'd say the quickest things you will sell would be the shortblock/trans, wheels/tires, headlights/taillights, plus GXP parts and if you get lucky aftermarket exhaust/suspension. Weather or not it becomes profit will depend entirely on how much you get the cars for.
I would say probably not. Bid is already at $3500 for the red one, who knows how much it will go up. Add shipping costs to that too. The only thing of real value is the parts you're taking off, wheels/tires, suspension (if good). After that you will need to find someone local to sell parts too unless you're willing to ship heavy items (rear end, doors, interior) and even then you might sit on those parts for a long time.
It's tough to sell that much local. Parts for these cars are getting rare and expensive.
Especially in the boonies of Minnesota. But, I'm counting on the parts getting rare and expensive - which is why I had to buy a parts car in the first place, lol. And shipping parts from half way across the USA...
