I began with around 16 milk crates of extra parts, both the regular size and the long ones. Also, a big pile of things not in crates. As I came to find out a lot of it was junk: stuff that was deteriorated and unusable, suspension parts that don't deteriorate or typically get broken, parts to unidentifiable cars (some 520/1), and so on.
I gave a lot of miscellaneous items to club members and sold some locally. I sold a small amount on ebay, which is a pain due to the time it takes to package and drop things off for shipping. Barely worth the time spent.
The truck is done, you can see it at ratsun. I have a very few items left to trade or sell, and have kept a couple of crates of spares.
As I did the rebuild I came to recognize what was unnecessary and what was worth finding another owner to give or sell to. A lot of "heavy metal" ended up in the recycle bin, good thing the local waste service uses mechanical arms to empty the totes.
I think this project cost me about what a quarter of tuition costs at a state university. It was a great learning experience. Heck, considering the cost/benefit analysis of college at present, I'd recommend parents seriously consider funding projects such as this for their children instead of wasting tens of thousands on college. I just don't see the benefit of the indoctrination/partying/find-oneself/people-warehousing BS that college has become.
These 320's have a huge amount of style. I'm more of a project person however, so I expect at some point I'll sell and move on to the next thing.
This is my first post so hopefully I've read the rules correctly.
I have boxes and boxes of 1965 320 parts. My intent on being here is to eliminate my surplus of parts. The first item I'd like to sell are a set of door windows--glass and complete frames, a matching set left and right. No idea what they are worth, but if anyone is interested or can help me value them, I'd like to hear from you.
I also have an extra dash in decent shape.
I'm looking for a set of pistons if anyone can suggest where or how to obtain them. I have two engines a 1200 original matching serial I'm rebuilding and a 1300 installed that I can drive around with now.
I'll try to begin listing the items I have but it will take some time. If anyone can hook me up to someone in the Seattle area who is knowledgeable that would be appreciated.
Mod Edit: I have merged all your topics about 320 parts into one thread, to try and keep it all together
