A few years ago I managed to buy about 50 brand new Ssang Yong T5s (13-52-243) at an auction in Los Angeles that were still in the original factory boxes strapped to the original factory pallets. They wound up being sold to a company in Korea.

I suspect that most of those found in the U.S. were probably attained similar to how I attained mine. When I researched mine, I found that there were not enough parts in them that would fit U.S. units to justify keeping them. So, to Korea they went.
