Gosh I hope you don't part out nice clean rot free bodies. Seems like a shortage of those these days.

Is this the same group of cars that was posted about earlier? I thought they said they *weren't* going to crush them. Why is it so important to part them out now *before* they're crushed?

In parting them out, don't neglect the easily overlooked, hard to get parts, things that can't/won/t be repopped and aren't available NOS, such as good used parts for rare applications. For example:

any molded-in-color interior plastic parts
Any one-year-only parts
A/C parts, particularly small parts and fasteners
4-door-specific parts
Specialized rubber parts, like the "B" pillar-to-door seals on LM's

Hope you can also save whole project cars, the less rusty the better. Tim's right!

Best wishes on a thankless and difficult task, and thank you for doing the best you can do under the circumstances!

Too many different threads. I can't keep them straight and none of the posters have responded to me.

I'd be interested in a solid rust free 1964 window van, if something like that actually still exists.

I talked to one of the posters on the 15th and had a specific request for him. He sounded like he was going to follow through.

I have followed up with him via phone and text....heard absolutely nothing!

Frustrating.
