I bought a parts car

I bought a parts car yesterday,a 1984 Camaro and it is not repairable,The back half where the rear end goes into is completely rusted out and totally gone.I am getting my money back out of it,sold the front clip this morning including the tail lights.The guy that bought the front clip comes over saturday to remove it.I have the rear end sold to a good cousin of mine.I bought it just for the engine and transmission,a built up 355 and 700R4 transmission and the steering column.Another guy is supposing to call me for the front seats,put them in his 1939 Ford ratrod.After the parts are sold,I am taking the shell to the scrap yard since I have the title for it after removing the gas tank which I am keeping,brand new.

This one is not a Z28 and sold the trunklid and doors today.Pulled the engine and transmission last night.Guy that wanted the front seats came over removing the seats paying me $20.00 for each seats.The engine is going in my 1986 Chevy mud truck,the 305 in it is very tired and had it's days.Plus I don't have many 700R4s left,one on my parts shelf and the core buyer I buy them from comes every 3 monthes paying $150.00 for a 700R4 core.I have 4 4L60Es on my parts shelf and I don't have any plans to sell them either.I will get at least $250.00 to $300.00 for the shell at the scrap yard.

I am planning to install the 355 in my mudtruck this weekend.700R4 cores are getting scarce and bought a couple more today.The guy that stops by buying catalytic converters had two in back of his truck and I bought them for $150.00 a piece.I plan on sending the shell of this camaro to the scrap yard on Tuesday.
