anything worth salvaging from a 97 V6 bird?

Went to the junkyard today and eyed a 97 V6 bird that was smashed in on the side,


anything worth salvaging out of it?

I have a V8, so the engine isn't really any interest to me.

People will pay decent money for headerpaneles, lights, hood and front bumpers from those. And if its a 97 the cup holders

Dry rot is the sh*t.

Get the factory exhaust manifolds too. It's a much better design than the earlier years and a lot of us guys with 89-95 3.8 birds crap manifolds upgrade to the tubular design manifolds that 96-97s came with. I'm sure someone on here would pick them up from ya, and it's only 6 bolts per side, so not much effort needed for you to get a few extra bucks.

well.. driver side power is $28 shipped NEW From max.. pass side was like $18 for a manual seat..

So long as it is intact.. and try to keep screws too.. see if we can do $15 shipped.. but no more than $20 only because they aren't made anymore is reason i will go that high.

Let me know.. also about the black trim around teh guage cluster.. some of my bolt guides are broken...

Alright I'll check it all out for you guys.


I asked for how much you were willing to pay so I'd know if it was worth pulling or not, I'm not trying to make a profit, just trying to help out some fellow TCCOA'ers

Just wanted to clarify that.
