suppose it all depends on how much is salvageable off the wreck... so could be any price pending damage.. we'd need pics to make a fair judgement here..

You will probably get $1000 max from the wreckers. If its a 5spd then more but if the diffs rooted then $1000 is all your looking at I think.

Sell the goodies out of it yourself.. if a wrecker can make money from it, so can you!

My mate runs a wrecker yard and he rarely pays more than $100 for a vehicle. Good luck getting much more than that.

If you have the time, space and know how, wreck the thing yourself, you'd surely be able to mkae 2k out of it, if parts are still fairly clean.
