If there's any good news, looking at your photos, I can see 4 OCC aluminum wheels, OCC grille, hood emblem and left tail light, which all seem to have survived unscathed.
I see $250 right there. If you have good seats, seat belts, dash, steering wheel and column, steering box, front bumper cover, interior door panels, cluster, engine and trans. I am up to about $1100 (minimum) with the previously mentioned $250 included, and there are a lot more parts on it too, and you can sell the shell to the junk yard for another $300. Now you are at $1400, and I have seen decent OCCs go for that much.

When you get back on your feet, and can do the work (don't rush it) you have your little gold mine in the back yard, to get another one. Chin up old chap, as the Brits say, all is not lost.

1991 OCC 461 (.030 over 454) BBC, 3.23 posi, flash to pass, drop spindles & springs, custom fender skirts, stainless full moons, Recaros, Blazer console, MOMO/wood SW w/QR, custom wood shift knob, Pioneer DEH P77DH
1992 OCC now with 5.7 tbi, DEH P77DH

That's a good plan.

The last time I went to pull a part south there was an OCC with all cladding in tact.

don't remember. it was during the winter, so who knows what's left of it now. the point I'm trying to make it is always worth looking there. there is a lot of OCC's dying right now.

Glad to hear that you pulled through, these wagons are good at saving lives. Its' been four months now since mine saved my life. I was t boned by a van doing nearly 70mph, did two full air born barrel rolls before landing on the roof and slid down into the ditch. I walked out of the hospital 20 hours later.
