Hi all,

I need some advice.

I have an opportunity to part out an 86 GT. I will only have a few hours to pull what I want before it gets scrapped – the guy wants it out of his yard (where it looks like it’s been sitting for years). We agreed on a price for me to pull off anything I want, so I need to know what I should make sure to grab. I will have 2-3 hours, hand tools only (cordless drill), and limited to what I can fit in my Jeep.

What I know/was told/could see from my brief inspection (car was covered in snow when I looked at it)
Engine is seized and has been sitting for years
Frame is VERY rusted - inside of trunk is split open (rust)
Automatic transmission
Body is good (though very sun bleached and faded)
Interior is ok.
Quarter windows are bad

I know I’ll be pulling the following, please let me know if I’m overlooking a hard to find part that I’ll regret missing later. I want to make a list before I go so – help me build it

Tail lights (worth the price alone)
Interior dash Trim
Visors
Seats (2 sets, another from an 85 w/speakers)
Aero ground effects
Possibly the wheels (if I have room)
Any dash piece that is in good shape
Possibly some body panels - but space will be limited.

Any suggestions are appreciated. I'm really only looking to build a spare parts collection for myself, but I'm not opposed to grabbing something else if someone REALLY needs it - Remember though, I will be limited to a few hours and hand tools, and what I can fit in my Jeep, so I won’t be pulling the transmission out.

Thank in advance for any help!

If it's a 4 speed, the cable brackets on the tranny are quite rare. I'd hate to think any get crushed. Save the headlight relays/motors. A spare heater blower motor is good to have.

I forgot to mention it's an automatic - updating my original post. Thanks you for the other suggestions!

Thanks, I really appreciate that - but I have no way of transporting it, so I plan on pulling off what I can salvage. I can at least save some of it......

If it will fit, I'd take the front hood at least. Seems to be hard for me to track one down. Plus, they fit every year, so they are very versatile.

Doors especially if the windows are in good shape, I know I need a set and they are over 300 new. Seats and any interior plastic trim in good shape. Intake filter housing so I am told is harder to find in good shape. Overflow radiator tank if mounting tabs not broken.

Coolant tubes, (if in good shape) A/C condensor, A/C hose assembly on rear firewall, complete wire harness uncut, headlight motors, wiper module, recall weather strip if it still has one, these are all harder to find in good shape items in addition to input from others. My thoughts..Curtis
