Cool Parting out a 1959 Ponton 220S 4 door 6 Cyl dual carb

Hi all. I found this car in a junkyard and it broke my heart to see it rotting away and in danger of being crunched for scrap metal.





I was able to salvage a few basic items that day. My stuff shows up on the eBay listing here @ BenzWorld, for example Item Number: 261113679035 - front fender marker lights. You can click on see seller's other auctions for the other items.

But here's the question: It has the 6 cyl dual carb motor. Is the carb / intake / head / block / and tranny worth anything if I pull it? It's a lot of labor and trouble, want to get some knowledgeable input before I get into it further.

The four doors are also in pretty good / restorable shape. Do they have value for restoration type folks?

Any advice would be appreciated.

I can be contacted @ HandyRacing@live.com

Thanks

I have eBay private messages for the bumpers and a fender. Does anyone know what a fair price might be? Thank you in advance for your assistance.
