Most valuable parts on a notch

Besides rear quarter windows, what are some valuable Parts found on a notchback? I have a 4-cylinder knots parts car I'm debating on stripping down when I'm done with my project

If it has wheels maybe keep two incase you want to use them for slicks. I’m kicking myself for not keeping my oem’s.

Yeah man, drag wheels are kinda expensive. I was wanting to get a set of slicks and wheels for this season but crap kept breaking and there’s still the a/c that needs to be replaced, so it’s not gonna happen. If I had my oem wheels maybe just maybe I could’ve sprung for two slicks.

Rear window is not made in aftermarket, and a clean trunk lid is worth about $150

Most all the parts are worth something. What I would do is use all you need
to complete your project then put an ad in the paper or Craigslist
stating "Parting out Mustang notchback.Most of the people that come to look at the car
are willing to remove the part or parts themselves saving you the labor of doing it yourself
Worked for a friend of mine.

Cool

A little off topic but, I picked up a running '88 TurboCoupe with a cracked head for $300..................



Parted it out to the tune of $3000...........................



On the TC, I even sold chunks of California quarter panels to guys in the rust belt to use as patch panels on their rusted out quarters! '87-'93 Mustangs used to be a dime a dozen in the U-Pull it yards 7-8 years ago. Now, they're non-existent! Supply and demand. There's someone, somewhere looking for every piece you have on your notch. Your job is to become a marketing consultant. Consult yourself on marketing your notch parts. CL, Ebay, the classifieds in online car forums, etc. Pad your bankroll.............$20 at a time!

'93 5.0 LX ragtop - Donor car for '54 Ford Customline
'89 LX ragtop with turbo'd TC motor - Thunderstang!
'86 Turbo Coupe (daily driver)
