Unless you are going to spend hundreds of hours dismantling it all it would have to go as "mixed" and even at todays prices 5 grand would buy a fair old bit of scrap.

I may have been a bit mean but 45 grand is way over the top.

To identify and catalogue the parts would be a nightmare, then you have to wait ....how long? to see any sort of decent return. Even the seller admits that the parts have deteriorated.

If I had the money it wouldn't be a project I'd want to invest in. :wink:
