Really? Then you wouldn't want to hear that BOTH are intact. One is the A/C type (without the vents, though- it had the metal radio bracket behind it) the other is the early type with the radio holes molded in.

They want $16.50 plus tax for 'em, and I don't know what shipping would be- probably around $15 since they're long.

Oh, they have little blemishes that you can't see in the back (see 'em when out, but they're good when in) and the 3-hole one needs the heater control face glued back in (it's loose).

They were nice enough that I bought both, so if you want one shoot me a PM.


On another note, I need to revise what cars are there- I missed some.

1 610 4-door
1 B210 2-door
1 early 80s 200SX (S110 type) with a knife through the windshield
2 Pulsars
1 more NAPS-Z 720 with late style bed.

Well, at least he gets 24 hours notice. That's more than most of us get. All most of us get is, "Mind that bus!" "What bus?" _splat_!

I went to Portland Wrecking on N Columbia today.

There were three 620s, a '75, '76 & a '79. They have been picked on a little bit but I got a couple small things I needed. They were a little rusty and beat up, but the engines were still intact.

There was an '82 & '83 720 about the same condition. One had and L20 that was complete.

There was one hardbody that had a lot of nice stuff, cherry fender, doors and the engine was all there. The front suspension was gone... can you say discs for a 620?? Yes... just not mine!

They just jacked the entry fee to Two Bucks. Have to start taking a bigger tool box. :rolleyes::fu:

Is the tail gate on the 521?

I came here today to chew some bubblegum and kick some ass. Right now I'm all out of bubblegum. 

 

My biggest fear is that when I die, My wife will sell my cars for what she thinks I have in them.

datrod, Yes the tailgate was still attached:D and still looked to be in pretty good condition:D. '74 620 was all there as well minus the dash gauges, and the paint and body was in good condition.

Well thanks for the tip. I went out there today. The light green 521 you speak of must have turned brown from the desert sun. I did pull the driver side door for a friend. But that truck was pretty rusty. The tail gate had a hole thru it.

Sorry you couldn't use the tailgate. I was paying more attention to the 620.

Some one should get that front bumper on that 620 looked pretty clean to me.

Tuesday July 17

  • 720 pickup, complete at Budget Auto Wrecking, Kent. It was in the monster "incoming" pile, so act fast. It looked like a nice truck, mildly hit in the front
  • 240SX with engines, various years: South End, Tukwila


So what kind of a "deal" can one typically get at a wrecking yard for a complete truck and do they provide you with a title? :mellow:

"usually" they say once the car is in the yard, you can only buy it in parts. They refuse to sell it complete. If it is in the staging area, I've heard $500 is a flat rate for older cars complete. I have no idea if you get a real title or a bill of sale that allows you to have the title rebuilt at your own time and expense.
Thank you Ted!

South End used to sell whole if you got the right person. I've bought ONE car from a wrecking yard, but minus engine/trans (trans was toast which is why it was in the yard). Rare that yards will sell whole anymore. And they aren't deals- $300-500 minimum.

You don't get a title. You get a bill of sale, which means you have to have it inspected by the State Patrol (here in WA) to get the VIN re-entered on the books. That alone costs a couple hundred, and the title will be branded Salvage.
