Looking for advice on selling some parts. was created by Trailspice
Hi, everybody.
I was recently named administrator of my late father's estate which included what looks to be two entire engines worth of parts from probably model J Duesenbergs. Both engines are disassembled and pretty rusty. I believe he pulled them out of junk yards in the NoVA region in the 60s or 70s.

I have so far come up dry searching for places to sell such things, not entirely surprising given how few exist, so I am asking for any advice y'all can offer in terms of where/ whom might be interested and where to start figuring out a price.

Thanks in advance.

sorry, the parts were buried deep in a semi trailer and I had only gotten as far as seeing a box of miscellaneous parts on top of the blocks when I made this post.
I was able to dig them out this weekend and unfortunately I don't have as much as I initially thought and it seams to be in pretty rough shape. Here are some pictures of what I've found: imgur.com/a/VRaX8rX
what I have is:
2) Engine blocks. one with bad rust pitting, the other with some pitting and "A100B" cast into the side
2) Cylinder heads, one with complete set of valve guides
2.5) Valve covers, one complete, one missing a small chunk, and cracked chunks from a third.
1) Oil pan
1) timing cover
2) water pumps
2) Oil level indicators
7) Connecting rods
6.5) Pistons
Some other parts the function of which I don't know.

It isn't out of the question that more exists. his collection is spread across three semi trailers and both floors of a large dairy barn.

Thanks.

I own a Model A and would be interested in several of these parts. What is the serial number on the engine block, it should be on the left side near the top at the first cylinder?
