I found a deal on a truck I might buy just for the motor. Anyone tell me how much a full size Chevy truck would be worth at a scrap yard minus the engine? I've brought aluminum and brass and such and noticed many guys hauling in whole car/trucks, so must be worth something.

Anyone know to what level you need to strip them? Does interior left in, tires left on, etc reduce price?

Thanks!

The cat convertor is worth nearly 100 bucks all by it's self...depending on the year and model.
ALU rims? and ALU radiator are also worth some bucks.
We strip these items off every car, before we send to the "crusher"

There was someone on this website a while ago that was scrapping cars and looking for vehicles in southern NH. You might want to check back a couple months to see if you can find him.

Will check into it, but seems as though I'll eliminate the middle man and bring it to the yard myself.
