I'd like to know what everyone thinks of parting out vehicles that aren't running. I have a 68 Ford Thunderbird thats engine is blown, though there may be some salvagable parts. I dont want to get rid of any Body or cab parts, the tires are gone (i.e.: large holes, non-repairable), and the entire thing needs an overhaul. In a sense, it's my "pretty kitty savoy" (lol). will post pictures later if i can find a way to have more than one picture on this site.

If the car is relatively whole... It would be a shame to part it out. You might find someone that would like to restore it. In my humble opinion, that is the better idea. That said... if it is a complete basket case... parting it out may be the only way to make anything of it. Its a tough call without seeing it.

i'd love to restore it myself, the only real porblems are the blown engine, who knows how many of its parts are still working, and the torn up tires. i dont want to get rid of it at all, it was a gift from my dad, i just dont have the funds to work on it, and my truck needs to be put first now
