Default Value of parts

I wonder if you guys can give me a rough Idea of what I should ask for some parts I have? When I bought my 29 Tudor, It came with an extra transmission, a flywheel, a clutch pressure plate, an intake manifold, an exhaust manifold with heater, and the original generator and distributor. Also a gasket set, and some small new parts. I do not know the condition of any of these parts. I just sold my A, and have no plans to have another one, so want to sell the parts. I prefer to sell all together in one lot. I will sell cheap, just to clean out the shed. So what should I ask to sell quick???

You might be able to get a couple hundred for the lot. If any of it is rebuilt ask more.

Nothing is rebuilt, just used parts. I was hoping to get $100 for the lot.

the tranny is worth 75. but takes forever to sell. so 100.-200. would be fair for everything.

Be sure to figure out whether the trans has a multi-disk clutch or single-disk clutch. That might be important to a potential buyer.

My experience has been not long after you sell it, usually at a discounted price, you'll discover you need it and buy one back at a premium price. Just saying...

That would be true, but I wanted an A for several years, then when I got one, I found out I really didn't use it enough to warrant having it. I would much rather have a different classic in my garage. So, I am 99.9% sure I will never have an A again. And I doubt if I have that many years left to be driving anyway. Also, I need to also sell my 64 Ranchero, before I will buy another car, and that may never happen, as I seem to not have any interest in it.

Yes but someone else get it store, move it, trip over it in the mean time but frees up my limited space at the same time. LOL

Why didn't you let the parts go w/the car? Same as you got them.

The manifold with heater cover is a $50 item all day long. Gasket set With head gasket $25
Distributor $10 Transmission.... I consider each one is a core @ $15 max. Tested and ready to install with shift tower $200
Now at a auction or swap meet I can by everything for $25 tops.
