Parting out 95 wagon (posi 3.42 rearend, etc)

I have a '95 Caprice wagon with some decent parts that I'd like to see go to enthusiasts before it goes to a local junkyard.

Rearend w/ Richmond 3.42:1 gearset on Impala posi unit. Has the correct ABS reluctor (I bought the last one my dealership could locate), and has run Royal Purple rear end lubricant since I got it. Brake lines are ni-copp, and I'm pretty sure I replaced the slave cylinders plus rubber frame line fairly recently. Gear mesh is dead-on, and it got new inner bearings when I installed the gears. $150

Front shocks are the Bilstein "heavy duty" shocks, and aren't terribly old. $50 for the pair

It has 2.5" mandrel-bent exhaust from the cats back, with the magnaflow intermediate pipes, polished stainless mufflers (magnaflow, maybe? I forget), and over-the-axle pipes that some knucklehead who can barely weld put together out the sides. I dunno, maybe $75?

Two of the climate control knobs are pretty new. $10 for the two?

Driver's side electric fan works (passenger side fan was sold). $30

The blue interior, hood, glass, rear wiper, roof rack, etc are in pretty good shape. I replaced the power steering lines recently; it has the "power steering cooler" line now. The headlights and front turns are working Silverstars. The A/C lines are new, as is the A/C compressor and the drier. The whole A/C system works really well and doesn't leak at all, so it'll kill me to ventilate that when it comes out. :/ PM me if you want any of those things or stuff that I didn't list.

I'm in central IL, just between Bloomington and Champaign. I'm not shipping that rearend or the exhaust, but small parts, sure. Or, rent a car trailer and come get the whole thing to take what you want off at your leisure. Perhaps $350 (the engine, transmission, and some underhood wiring/ECU are out). I figure it's probably worth $200-ish at the local scrap yard, and I'd appreciate saving me the hassle of dragging it over there.

There's also a '96 (9C1) iron LT-1 in pieces in the garage. The valvetrain is probably shot from rust, but the intake, block, crank, heads, etc should be fine. Maybe $250?

All prices are OBO, if you feel like you just have to dicker or whatever.

You've exceeded your PM quota.

So, I guess I have a couple of questions - do you want all of it? Are you gonna come out here to get it out, or do I need to extract it and figure out how to ship it? I should note that all but the windshield is tinted. The front doors are like 30-40% tint, and the rear doors, sides, vents are maybe 80-90% Back window is... I'm not sure - less than the back sides. The back window's tint is annoyingly bubbled; I'll get some pictures on request.

I guess $150 sounds like a reasonable price for all of the glass alone, considering the buyer's hassle of removing the failed tint. It might be a good idea to pay a professional to pull the windshield and rear sides so I don't break them, and I guess I'd probably want to build a plywood crate to ship it in. Stacking it all up with a bunch of cardboard layered between, stapled down to a wood base and a plywood box over the top seems like the right way to go, which probably means some kind of freight shipping. So, depending on the answers to the other questions...

Doh!

So, those u-ship type places let you get someone with a van or whatever who'll transport the stuff and also handle crating it up, so the shipping liability is all on them. I took pictures of the places where the tint isn't awesome and the stickers that are on the windshield a few minutes ago: https://photos.app.goo.gl/XcKuEjHwDg2Q1epA8

Or just ship the whole car out there. The glass would be safely transported that way.
