I have a 1979 300sd turbo diesel which, I am finally forced to admit, is too trashed to continue using as a daily driver. Window leaks, mold, none of the locks or window motors work, climate control broken, needs front end work, etc etc. The engine and transmission have never given me any trouble whatsoever though.

My question- does anyone have advice regarding parting out and selling the engine and transmission on these types of cars? Was it worth it? Were you able to sell your parts locally or on eBay? Anyone who has been there and has some wisdom to impart , I'd love to hear it. I would hate to simply junk the car but no one is trying to buy it all in one piece, I will say that.
Thanks
