SC A/C parts worth anything?

I have the basic SC AC parts that are no longer in my car. Are they worth selling? IE the compressor etc being that it can't be recharged or reused? Cleaning out the misc stuff we all have and didn't know if I should toss it or sell

The compressor mounting base/bracket assembly has to have value. Not sure what though.

Don't pitch it.

I have seen various parts going for some cash on ebay. P.I.T.A. to ship though since its so heavy.

Words of wisdom. When I was reinstalling the A/C in my car that was the hardest part to find. Personally I would crate and store the stuff. May come in handy later or you can include it should you ever sell your car.

Yes, worth a lot to a new buyer. I think your car would be worth more also if you had the AC parts . Sure, you don’t want that stuff now but we always sell our cars in the future.

Yes, I would store the a/c stuff for a later time. It took me a year to find all the necessary brackets for my cat to re-install. The last bracket I found at the Heresy meet last year. Got lucky!!! Keep it !!!

It's weird--I agree you'll want to keep the old stuff in a box for the next buyer, but the reality is that (besides the bracket) anyone truly interested in having working A/C in a 911 would be crazy to re-install it. The new stuff is the only way to go, unfortunately. I spent a ton of money on a complete Kuehl dual condenser (well, three, including a small one in the Turbo tail) system, and I now have A/C that rivals any new car. You'd never get that from the old tube-and-fin condensers/evaporators. As for the 10-pound York compressor? Anchors aweigh!

There are restorers that want working York Compressors. That would be worth selling.
There is a post in the Turbo forum WTB for one right now.

I don't understand the "keep it stock" crowd. There's also a guy in the FS forum looking for stock heat exchangers with thermal reactors for his 930..

I think keeping the parts is wise unless the car is going to be heavily modded. I think it's nuts but there are people actually looking for the awful stock compressor of this vintage so they can be all original. Honestly it's the newbies mostly- and they are the collector-investor crowd. They know the part numbers and all that but no clue about the point of these cars. And I saw that ad too - for the 930 thermals. You gotta wonder. I can see buying them and sticking them in a box but obviously they either have no clue at all or no intention of driving it.
