I hate to see stuff like this get crushed and ruined forever. Headlight bezels, window trim, bumpers, fenders, you name it. Once it's all gone, that's it. Can't save everything, but it's nice to dream about. Nothing here really looks 100% worth $500. A local place near me had an antiques section. Once millis industries bought them out, crushed. All of it. Glad I got pics a year before.
Anyway, if you're building an antique, hot rod, rat rod, whatever, they might have something your're looking for. Scrap is $40/ton in most places. I'd like to call this guys bluff, since he won't get much $ recycling it.
Here's the Craigslist link and below that, the description within.
