    I have a few 83 2wd suburban parts for free . I have a complete uncut wiring harness (interior&engine) . This burb had power window & door locks and a 454 . also have the stock gauges and the heater switches ( vac operated ) . I was gonna toss this stuff but thought maybe someone might need it . I will keep this up for a week and after that I will chit can them . No shipping and you got to come pick it up .

    Man you gotta offer this stuff up and be willing to ship! Well, you don't have to, but you've got money sitting around in parts. :)

    Hate to see good stuff like uncut wiring go to the junk heap, the right person will pay good money for that stuff! If I was close by I'd come get it just to make the money/save the parts. :( Doesn't take but 10 minutes to box this stuff up and 10 minutes at the post office.

    It ain't really to me, I'm running an electric speedo and TPI, but I'd certainly sell it if it were free or very cheap to me. I don't want to gouge anybody, so having someone ship something just so I can sell it doesn't help anyone else.

    I figure if you've got storage space (I know lots of people don't) why not hold onto parts that not only aren't made anymore, but can help others out, and might make you a few bucks at the same time?

    I do appreciate it, but I bet $20 someone else on here that had an engine fire or idiot PO could use a cheap, good wiring harness.

    dyeager535 , I understand where you are coming from but I have enough crap and when I get to much stuff I just toss it out . I hate pack ratting stuff . I had some stuff that I've tried to sell and even give away and no one wanted it so so I just tossed it or scrapped it . As for shipping , it does take some effort and time on my part to box an item and ship it off and I'm a pretty busy person . I'm not trying to come off like a dick so please don't take it that way . Yes I could sit on it and make a few bucks on it but I don't have time for the nickle and dime chit . It's just better to give it away or toss it . colby , the heater control is yours . It has ac too . You can take the rest of the stuff and make some coin off of it if you want . Bruce .

    Naw, that's cool, I know where you are coming from. Stuff I thought I'd turn around and get rid of the day I got it still sits in a box in a shed, while stuff I thought I'd never sell goes right away. :)

    I just wish I could hoard every good piece getting tossed away. Start a used OEM auto parts business! In 20-30 years people will be paying for this stuff what they are for 60's car parts now.
