Making out on selling parts

This is not an add its a story

I had whole truck advertised for $500 a 93 f150 4x4 bad motor. No takers . I start selling parts and still have a rolling truck and made $500 and am selling stuff cheap. Still has good doors and axles ,drive shaft many parts . I might buy another to part and just save parts I need.

What really funny is I have been offer what I wanted when everything was there. oh well

that seems to be the way it always goes.
i had a 94 dodge shadow for sale for $750 for 6 months. no takers.

3 weeks ago, i got a call if i still had it, and i sold the engine for $750, then the body for $250 to the engine buyers friend.

last week i got another one for free, and just sold it for $750.
all i had to do was charge the air conditioner and replace the driver side rear brake line.
total investment?? $45

I've done it many times with different cars and trucks, I'll have 91 Explorer parts soon as I get a chance to pop the 4.0 out.

I reply to all adds . I never had any luck posting sale Items ON FTE .I know you leave a message for them and nothing.. Just you get the guy wanting a used starter from Alaska . Heck the shipping is more than new one. I did get wants for the tailgate panel .

I too reply to all ads.I've had some success selling stuff on FTE.The thing I can't figure out is why someone who is say 75 miles from me won't buy a part but I'll end up selling it to someone on the west coast.I just sold a steering column to a guy in Las Vegas over at another site.The UPS charges were more than the seliing price.The buyer sent a USPS money order via express mail.

We are lucky I can find 12 Ftrucks from 80-97 siting with in 15 minute of my house. I looked at em all . Your basicrust buckets. But About any part can be found.

I was in down town chicargo and found a parts truck . People just don't look.
Or take trip out town. You are right about driving. I have people driving 75-100 miles for parts and the locals wont got 20 miles want shippied. Have a good one

I have one and there are several nice ones at local wreckers (they like to push the after market ones it seems. But shipping would be nuts for it. I bought my current 94 truck near there. I go to Marryland and south to get my rides .The body are nice.
