Parting out '84 944--how much can I make?

How much $$ (rough estimate) can I make parting out parts? Car's in good condition (no rust),still runs. Gray ext/Blk interior
In need of new clutch job, I can't/won't do it, and I don't want to dump $2000+ into a car worth $3K.

Soooo, if I were to part it out, realistically how much can I make?

Actually $350 if you want to do it on the cheap side (friction disk and throw out bearing)

DOOOON'T kill it. I am parting one out now and plan to do more but I vow to never buy one that isn't already dead. Clutches are cheap. Dont thin out the blood line any more. Sell it whole to someone who will fix it if you have to.

Not worth it unless you have an awful lot of free time and enjoy getting greasy, dirty, sweaty and miserable - and having all your neighbors hate you for running a junkyard.

I'd either sell it "as-is" to someone who will fix it, or fix it yourself.

Is it paranoia if everyone really IS out to get me?

I've seen more otherwise good 944's get scrapped for clutches, and though it's not a simple job, it's a better alternative than ripping the car apart.

Thanks for the replies and encouragement.
tho' parts for the clutch are cheap, how much would it cost to have it done for me?
Bottom line, I don't have the time/knowledge to take on such a task, so realistically, it ain't gonna happen.
So what's the most inexpensive estimate to get a clutch job done? How many hours of labor?
I'm near LAX, if anyone local wants to tackle it for less than 'usual' Pcar wrench charges of $80/hr.

thanks
Mike

Realistically????? when has that word ever applied to our cars.

Typical shop 12 to 20 hours. Members with a garage lift can do it in 6 with coffee and biscuit breaks. The problem is that no good mechanic will open up the clutch and just put in the disc and TO. You will be on his a$$ when the next bit breaks or leaks.
If it ain"t gonn happen, you have a roller.

I've parted a few cars, but I've got a big advantage- I own an old warehouse, and all of the parts cars were indoors, with lots of working space. I could come and go as I pleased, and leave all kinds of stuff just laying around while I got to what I needed. I had a few local 944 racers call me with their needs, so I rarely needed to ship stuff long distances. Most came by to pick up what they needed, or we met at an autocross/race, or whatever else was convenient.

Yes, you can make money. But it takes work, and moneywise, I'm far better off now that I got rid of the parts cars and rented out the space to somebody who sends me a rent check every month.
