Default Are some parts worth selling?

I didn't want to post this in FS because I don't know a) if it'* worth selling b) what it would be worth. So thought this was an appropriate forum.

Basically, I've been trying to resurect a Bonneville that was slated for the yard....so far I'm at $1500 (including the car) and have done the following:

New windsheild
Ball joints and wheel bearings
muffler
all body work
MAJOR interior cleaning - smashed windsheild does crazy things to the interior after months
now time for the motor.

Basically I had 2 shot valves and will have the following parts for a 1997 3.8L K code available...

Set of heads - need head work
Lower intake manifold
Upper intake manifold
EGR
Coil Pack
Throttle body

Are these parts worth selling? and how much is a fair asking price?

Thanks,

Dan

Dan, some of the parts you listed can sometimes be sold (if there happens to be someone wanting a particular item). I know that at least sometimes people are looking for throttle bodies, coils packs, or LIMs.

If you haven't already had responses from this thread, you can try listing them in FS with a "Best Offer" price. I am not one of the parts gurus, so really don't have a great idea what you could ask.
