Found an abandonded '74 Charger SE

Completely abandoned for over 10 years, a lot has been ripped off of it, the badges, hood ornaments, I managed to salvage the grille, the center dash is completely ruined, the center console is ruined, any other parts I could possibly grab up before it heads to the crusher? The car is approx 2miles or so from my home, doesn't run or drive.

No surface rust or rot on the outside. Everything is all original.

Vinyl top is ruined. Was thinking about salving the wheels, original Cragar SS on them but the center cap on one of them was removed.

How much would some of these parts go for that aren't damaged?

All depends on condition and the demand for them.

They are pretty good, I've gone through pretty much everything, the bumper is missing the badge and has algae-ish green on it, able to wash off

They are VERY nice, the chrome is just wearing off, no damage to them at all except that one cap missing. I just need to find a way to get the passenger side of the car away from the wall so I can take them off, so I need to get wheel dolleys or just take apart the steering column and put it in drive so I can move it

Also, I have the Driver and passenger side door badges, all cleaned just need to be re-chromed, the trunk badge. The hood ornament is inside the front clip where the grille was (Have the original grille, no cracks, just needs to be repainted)

Oh and papers I found inside the car - A bill of sale to a grandson back in 1975 for the amount of ~25.00, An issue of a Mopar Catalog from 1981 or so, a firearms license and manuals.

Bumper badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges ...

Seriously, what badges???

More concerned with surface rust/pitting and straightness. The bumper mounts need to be straight and SOLID. Surface stuff is fine on those as they are hidden once installed.

Tks

Lol you're original "Charger" badge, the emblem, sheesh!, No surface rust anywhere on the bumpers, doors, the bumper mounts may just have dirt and dust buildup, I'll find out more when I go there today. Everything is 90% SOLID in and on the car, I'm not so sure 100% about the frame, because I can't jack it up, I'll take pictures and post them today so you can understand what I mean about the wall and how close it is to that and the fence. I'll even try to get under there and take off the bumper and mounts for you.

..... and this car is not on anyone's property or behind a fenced area?

There is a 1940's Plymouth 5 window coupe in the woods across from my girlfriend's parents house that would make a great lawn ornament but I'm not gonna just go and take it because its been sitting there for an ungodly amount of time.

Maybe you should look into the car first is all I'm saying.

Front bumper is intact, and 78D, it was an old car lot, my Fiance's dad worked there before they shut it down, all of the cars in there are going to be crushed.

I got more parts and pics today.

Couldn't get at some of the parts due to the wall and tree. The rear bumper seems to be 100% fine though, I tried getting the taillights out, but I need to take off a few things first.

http://img101.imageshack.us/g/picture168l.jpg/

Direct link to the album. First 14 pictures is what I have, last 4 or so is what the car is like. If you see something you need just tell me, I'll get more pictures of everything in the next day or two.

Kiddo, if you get the chance, you may want to try for the whole thing. Hard to tell, but the console looks good, and thats $$$ too! Did I just use the word "kiddo"? Holy **** I'm getting old!

I'll start taking out EVERYTHING this week and going through what's good and what isn't, find out if it's interchangable with your cars and for the right price it's yours. Sadly I can't get the whole car, there is NO ROOM left in my driveway lol. But I'm going to see if I can get the transmission out, has a fully working slap stick still in there. Hell I'll even strip off all the chrome, the front seats have 1 rip each, the rear seat is PERFECT, both pieces so I'll grab those too

Both of the sliders work PERFECTLY, I can get you that part later tonight if I have the time, might take a day or two. Does it matter which side?

Oh, and I found the other parts to the center, the only thing missing is the lock for the console box. Other than that all the trim is there, all the parts are there

Well let's break it down - A car, last on the road in 1978, no registration, title, anything, to be crushed in the coming year, Don't really see a problem with it. Why let it all go to waste? When it gets sent to be blocked that would just put less parts out there for others.
