I am pretty sure a clunker car may have any body parts sold, in fact I
think the entire body could be sold whole and complete, but the motor
has to be physically destroyed.
These had green paint on the whole motor. Even the alternator and
I suppose a good way to end up with a decent Explorer or similar rig
would be to get one whole, and just grab another V6 from a wrecked
one. No shortage of those.
For pulling, your ideas sound fun. I am hooked on diesel for some odd
reason. I would like to find a V6 turbo diesel. For the money and
hassle though, I may as well just leave the motor attached to the
Mercedes, Audi or BMW it came from.
