Question Ideas on Mustang Salvage options?

We recently totaled our '68 Mustang (damage to frame, engine and front-end) and are looking for advice on what to do with the poor thing now.

Anyone know of a Mustang Salvage yard anywhere close to Seattle? Is this the kind of thing someone would want for hopefully more than just scrap?

Thanks guys!

-Eric

You should post pics. I know if my ins company told me my mustang was totaled I would still look to have it rebuilt. No reason the front clip couldn't be replaced really depends on the condition of rest of car and the extent of damage. Don't be to quick to take ins co word for it especially if the car is important to you

From an insurance perspective, it doesn't take much to total a 68 car. If it's really too much to fix, you could part it out. Just start stripping trim, hardware, knobs, brackets, lights, etc. Some stuff is really hard to find expecially for a concours collector. EBAY it.

Thanks for the ideas, y'all. I'm uploading a couple pics to my album for more context.

We're not in a position keep this car around (nowhere to put it at this point), so parting it out would be tough. I'll likely try craigslist and see if anyone wants to make an offer on the entire car.

For a future reference, buy hagerty ins. You name the value of your car and they charge you accordingly. My insurance on a 2012gt through them is $414 a year. My 83 is $175 for the year and you don't have to fight for every $ worth of damage. If the car is totaled , they pay you the value you agreed upon upfront.
