back in the 60's, i would make money on wrecks and mechanically challenged machines. some i kept as personal machines and then sold and some were turn-arounds.
my take is like most here, sell as a whole. parting out is for clunkers.
are you willing to go down to the flywheels???? are you willing to part out a working tranny??? once one piece is gone, basically shot in the foot, never going back.
as was brought out, beauty is in the eye of the beholder but the silver lining, a fool is born every minute.
