FREE PARTS--Just pay shipping plus $5

Hey all, as I stand around my garage with very little other places to go these days, I'm seeing a lot of items that are just hanging around and don't need to be cluttering up my life. So I'm going to offer these parts to anyone who wants them, for free, all I ask is that you pay $5 over and above whatever cost me for shipping. So if say your part was very small and was only going to cost $2 to send, I would quote you $7, if it's $23 to send, it will be quoted to you as 28. The only caveat is that multiple Parts shipped in the same container will be counted as separate orders. $5 per part and so on. I guess I'm calling this free because it seems to me that most of this is giving away things for a song.

So let's get started. I'm going to walk around my garage and speak into my device so this could be a little stream of conscious. I'm not going to edit it I'm just going to get it done and get it out there:

1) First off is an engine compartment harness. For a 66 Corsa. It is aged and brittle from 50 years being cooked by the engine, but it works fine. People know that I have spent the last couple of years baselining my car, meeting replacing items even that work properly with brand new parts, and I just replaced this harness. So be assured it was working all the way up to the moment I removed it. The only wire there's a question about is the brown thermistor wire. It was never hooked up properly and is clipped off. I didn't realize which wire it was until I put the new harness in.

Other items include--

2) A '66 Front grill. Looks good has a good spring in it but it is not Chrome it is silver painted.

3) Fan belt pulley
4) Starter solenoid.
5) Two interior door handles, pads and bases. Pretty crappy looking but they'll work for anybody that just needs a handle.
6) Alternator. Fan points in the wrong direction, but it comes with a proper fan thrown in the Box.
7) Monza Dash gas gauge. One of the lights on it is clipped, otherwise in excellent condition.
8) Corsa dash gas gauge. A bit dusty but complete.
9) A black shifter knob.
10) A white shifter knob.
11) Large turbo PCV pipe. You know the one section that goes down into the engine. NOT the big head cross piece.
12) A 1969 Monza side emblem. It has some blue paint on it but it's in really nice daily driver shape.
13) An old mechanical Summit gas regulator. Built for metal lines.
14) A pair of late model headlight bezels. In decent shape and painted silver. Not chromed.
15) A late model wiper fluid pump. The one with three nozzles going out and two electric prongs.
16) The passenger side of a late-model dashboard. No air conditioner hole, but comes with the door to the glove box.

That's it for now. I may decide that I want to get rid of some other stuff but this is what I'm offering.

If you say something on this thread and it's before someone else does, that'll put you first in line. But I would prefer that you private message me with anything that you would like to get.

Isn't the brown wire the license plate light? Thermister is the short white. wire...

Yes on that wiring fact, Matt. Brown is tail lights and license plate light. Side markers, I believe also.

Matt: 1968 wiring diagram link doesn't work, so I couldn't confirm side markers.

I'll check again. But there was no white wire in this new harness or the old one.

The old harness was sending two wires into the light. I just kind of assumed that the brown was wrong. But that has been my problem in the past. I'll look again

Had a lot of respondents so far. Thanks everyone.

The black shifter knob is claimed. So are the dash and wiper pump.

FYI:
I am going to the post office as soon as practically possible, and won't ask for payment until I have a number for each buyer.

What am I missing? If you have to pay $5 for the parts, in addition to the shipping cost, they aren't free.

Last line of the first paragraph: "$5 per part and so on. I guess I'm calling this free because it seems to me that most of this is giving away things for a song."

It takes time, boxes, tape and gas to the post office. So, I guess it can be thought of as an unstated handling charge?
