Default Now buying wrecked and salvaged Cobras.

Friends...
We have had a heck of a time getting parts in time to finish a few projects we had going on for a looong time. Most of the difficulties have been due to cash flow problems.
Besides the exchage rates no longer favor the US Dollar..


So, me and my uncle came up with the idea of buying wrecked and damaged cars. We won't use anything that is really messed up. We will only use the perfectly salvagable parts that were not dinged up during whatever happened to your car.

If there were any injuries and the car has any blood stains....we are not interested. That includes any cars that had a close encounter with a deer or any other wildlife.

We are only looking for good clean junk.

Some of the cars left our plant with a combination of Smiths, and Autometers on the same dash. I promised some of these folks I would get them the correct gauges as soon as I could.

That was about three years ago.

I have not been able to. We need one Smith's oil pressure gauge and we also need three Autometer Tachs.. If any of you have a Stewart Warner Water Temp. gauge we could really use one..

Give my uncle or me a call for your clean parts..
They will be put to good use.

Unhappy

15K. Drive it home and take whatever you need. Never been wrecked, spun out once but hit nothing. New carb, street tires, big draw back is small block engine. Not a show car. Doors don't llne up correctly dure to being first out of new mold and mold was not completely straight. That has long since been corrected and improved on. No exotic history behind this car.

Ron

Going along with Turk's new endevor on this idea.

Turk, Are you serious or is this a joke??

I have a SW temp guage as well as others.

For you, I would offer them if you need them.

What else do you need? Ask and I will see what there is.

Have you thought about contacting the limited number of companies that insure our beloved, they probably own
a few........

Question Long Beach Cobras?

We may have found out what happened to all of those Cobras that have come up missing in Long Beach!
Parted out!

P.S. I'll take one 'complete' CSX Cobra!

Thanks guys,
Our phones are ringing off the wall this morning...
I didn't realize there were that many junk Cobras out there.

Surprisingly most of the call are coming from owners of one particular brand.!!

Trularin,
Thanks.We went ahead and talked the customer into a warning light instead of a gauge.

Another thoiught occured to us. The whole purpose in recycling these slightly used parts and having them end up somewhere where they can complete someone else's dream is mainly to cut costs...
So what is to be gained by you shipping the part to us and have us turn aroound and ship it to the ifnal user? All that would do is add to the cost and and what was ganied would be lost to UPS or FedEx.

What I am thinking is maybe if we can match the seller and the customer who needs the part, maybe we can have a "U-PULL" right there in your garage. We will have them come to you, (with or without tools) and pull a switch or a starter or a door right there in front of you in your own garage.

Thanks to all who responded. We don't need any more SPF donors. We have plenty.
We are looking for some ERA's Street Beasts at this point.

Please please keep us in mind if you get in a fender bender.
Your first call should be to your insurance company, and your second one to us. Then you can call the family and tell them about the accident.

Lord
May
Almost
OK this.

Turk, your ground breaking marketing technology is brilliant. It works well. Us hillbillies in Southern Indiana have been doing it for decades, except we call it “Road Kill.”

Oh by the way, would you be interested in buying some good deer sausage?

I have seen manufactureres solicit all sorts of valuables as trade ins. I suppose there is nothing wrong with anything that can be turned into cash as down payment or as partial payment.
Why stop at computers, cars, appliances and musical intstruments?

Why not deer sausage?

Spicy, I hope!!

Please send some for evaluation and appraisal. Let us know what quantities you have on hand. We'll talk.

We miss deer sausage and especially deer jerky ever since we left Colorado.

Mike. You stay out of this..
