Default Parts Car

I've got a '91 900 at work that we're about to send to the scrap yard. It's in pretty good shape, but the guy who bought it just bought it for the headlights and some other small stuff. I'd like some suggestions of what to take off of it that would be of some value. I already snagged the AMM, the valve cover, the headlight wiper motors, the fuse box lid, and the fuel injection computer (I think). Anything else is mine if I can get it pulled off before it gets hauled off tomorrow. Any suggestions?

Non-cracked windshield/dash-board. 3.0 fpr, electrical switches, etc, toolkit, ignition wires, coil, what ever you have room to store really!

Good luck!

Windshield broke upon removal, dash has a lot of cracks, switches are good. I'll check on the FPR. Tool kit is gone. I already got the ignition wires, and I may grab the coil tomorrow.

I don't have a Classic 900, so most of this stuff I'll probably end up selling. I just want to get it while it's available. I think I may use the headlight wiper motors for another project though.

Is the glove-box door the later plain-black type without the silver stripe and model number? if so then it's worth taking that.

I'm pretty sure it's got a silver stripe and says "900" on it.

Don't junk it, throw it up on ebay parts cars or something. You'll get more money and it is more "just".

Location severely limits my e-bay audience for the car, and I'm sure the boss would hate having to wait for an auction to end for someone to come pick the car up. It does look like I might have until Monday before it gets hauled off though.

Yesterday, I grabbed the 3.0 FPR, the injectors, the heater controls, the coil, and the radiator fans. More suggestions are still welcome.

power window assemblies, power door lock actuators, bumpers (if good), turn signal switch. These parts cost lots to replace. The list goes on, sunroof motor, tialight lenses, emblems, good power steering rack?

An undamaged hood is worth real cash after a minor collision.

The December 1991 900 LPT sat outside my house has the silver-striped glovebox door. When did the door change?

Think model year 1993 - I had a 1991 (but '92 model) car briefly with the silver stripe, followed by (even more briefly) and August '93 car without it. I think they changed the instruments to the 9000-style ones at the same time. Pity that when they made that improvement, they took off the silver stripes and made the rest of the dash all dull...

The hood's gone. The hatch is in perfect condition, but I don't think I can fit it in my car.

What color is the interior. I'm looking for grey leather backseat headrests.

SO am I but I thought I'd have an upholsterer make skins for them... You're unlikely to get someone to part with just the headrests unless the rest of the seats are junk.

Well given the situation of the car I thought I would try. Plus he doesn't live far from where I am.

This seems to be turning into a swap meet.
