Picking up a car soon and will start a winter build. Was going to go route of buying a prebuilt one but I could not pass up the price I got on a street car. Will post updates later when I get working on it.

Is it worth selling parts off of it or simply just trashing them?

Interior parts are gold if they are in good shape. Top will sell if it's nice. If you don't want to keep them for rollers tires and wheels will sell. Cat and stock exhaust will sell. Any aftermarket stuff on the suspension or in the engine compartment will sell. Of course I live in an area these cars are very popular with the street crowd...so the market here is very good for parts.

Have fun with the build!

I'll have a craigslist sale then - thanks guys.

In process of stripping everything out of the interior to prep it for a cage and then paint.

The top is in good shape but the rear plastic window is cracked and has been stitched together - wonder if it is still worth anything. The frame and vinyl are still in great shape. The window looks like it is glued in so wonder if I can get a replacement one and fix it and sell as a functional top in good condition.
