Last chance for my '68 Ambassador parts

I have listed most of the remaining parts I have for sale in the classifieds:

When these are gone, the remains will go to a salvage yard. Thanks to all who inquired and purchased parts.

Parting out this Airstream trailer is something I did reluctantly but it was far beyond economical salvage. I'll consider it an organ donor.

For anyone else thinking of parting out an old Airstream, I would caution you to be prepared for a flood of inquiries for photos and info.
Although there is money to be made in buying an old AS and selling the parts, the process is extremely time consuming.
I would not do it again. I bought this one because the price was extremely low and I needed some of the parts for another trailer. I figured the money I would make from selling the other parts would make it a very worthwhile venture but I had bo idea of the time that would be required to answer all of the inquiries.
In hindsight, I would have been better off just to pay the high dollar for the parts I needed and leave it at that.
Now I'm stuck with a stripped Airstream with good useable parts that I just hate to take to a bone yard but I have to get it off my property. It's not a county ordinance, it's an ordinance from a higher authority...the wife.
I want it to be clear that I am not a pack rat as accused. Someday I will find use for one of the screws I saved and then I'll wave it proudly in her face, saying "see, I saved 10 cents by hoarding this screw." Won't she be embarrassed by all her unfounded accusations.
