Think the fan blade is still good? :lol: Looks like it got so hot that even the springs went soft.

Wow, zero of anything left in a re-usable state...

If it has a '65 vin/title it could be worth something to someone...

Just noticed that it is being sold as parts only, the VIN must have been sold already.

There cannot be any parts of any value whatsoever there...

The major cast iron components such as block and gearbox casing and diff are probably recoverable. Most of the alloy components including the head are probably overheated and gone soft judging by the cam cover having melted. A few hundred dollars worth of bits maybe but a lot of time to strip them out check them and clean them up.

You could always blast and paint the chassis and hang it from the ceiling as decoration
