Should i part the mach out?

The car has 90k and is only missing the rear bumper, front bumper, and grill delete. Car also has staggered termi wheels, sr short throw, and jba shortie headers. I payed 4k for the car so could i get my money back parting the thing out?

I would think either the best route would be to try and get cheap bumpers and sell as a complete car. Although you could possible sell as is for more then 4 k. If you part out you may be able to make more but then you run the risk of being stuck with literally half a car without a engine/ trans, etc.

Well the mach has a good amount of rare parts on it. Hood with shaker, sail pannels, gauge cluster, seats, cobra brakes,steering wheel, and silver dash. It also has a bunch of parts that people would want like the side scoops, 01+ center consol/ cup holder area, 3.55 rear axle, etc...

Can you sell everything that you want to sell locally?
Shipping is going to take a big bite out of the sales prices unless you charge the buyer an arm and a leg for shipping.
Just safely packing up some of those items to prepare for shipping can cost a surprising amount.

That's a good point but still just don't expect to sell it all in a few days. I've done part outs before and eventually it all gets sold but just remember it takes time and dealing with a lot of tire kickers for the bigger items.

Damn, if I had the space to do a build I'd totally take her off your hands. Be a nice starting platform to build up.

Shaker system is priced about right, but expect to get a lot less to actually sell it. Really depends on the demand at any given time. I could see those shaker systems becoming like the original ones or the CA Smog systems from the 60's cars.

What condition are the seats in? I'd possibly be interested in the drivers seat or even both front seats depending on the condition? Could you post up some pics of them?

You know that's what is funny. Despite being a really cheap interior, cheap plastics, fitment etc., it does age pretty well. Seats being the obvious exception.
