    I recently bought a new focus st. My 94 gt blew a head gasket and I don't want to spend another dime on making it run. It's falling apart. I was thinking of parting it out to increase my profit.

    Has anyone ever done this? Should I do Craigslist or eBay. Should I put a ad in the paper? I have some good stuff on it. T-5 trans is good. A real gt-40 intake. And other bits that should sell easy.

    I'm wondering if I should just put it up for sale as is. What do you think?

    I always did it on craigslist.
    Sold it piece by piece.

    I removed the parts myself, took tons of pictures and was as descriptive as possible.

    Pricing, I start a bit high, and let them haggle down a bit.
    They feel as though they got a good deal, and I got my real "asking price".
    Its a win/win!

    Also try to never meet at my place, unless I have to.
    If it'll fit in the trunk, I meet somewhere public down the street.

    Aside from some people flaking on a meet, I never had any issues.

    And I always made way more then what I paid.

    Do it on the corral and the sn95 forums. I've parted like 15 cars with no help of ebay or Craigslist

    Davis is spot-on, assuming your area has good clist activity. Make sure you use good descriptions that will help searches. I'd recommend multiple ads rather than one big list. Lots of guys doing restomods of first Gen cars will want stuff as well.

    Price is right on.

    Man, I've done so many head gasket replacements.
    I'd have that torn down and put back together in no time.
    Put the stock intake and throttle body back on it.
    Sell the GT40 tubular intake, elbow adapter and FRPP 65mm throttle body separately.
    Spend an hour or two on cleaning up the engine compartment.
    It'd be a nice easy flip for sure.
