Default Do certain parts add value to a non running car?

Hey all,
I have to get rid of my 928 project. I originally bought this car because it had some cool things fitted to it, and I was wondering if they add any value to the car as a current non runner.
It's a factory manual car with its factory manual sport seats. It also has later aero mirrors installed, Porsche 4 piston calipers front and rear, and some later Porsche rims. I can't recall what they are called but I'll attach a picture of them below.
The VIN is: WP0JB0928FS861622

Thanks,
Davis

Are you pulling the parts for resale or selling the entire car?
Selling the entire car requires it to be bulk moved, individual part requires time to remove and sell them.

As an answer to your question, yes and no, it all depends on the condition of the parts and the effort it will take to reuse them.
As for the rims they are cup 1's but most likely, the heaver Italian knock offs, so you will need that info and the offsets #'s.

Of the parts mentioned, they are just that, parts. The Factory Sport Seats are sought after by some, but unless they are in perfect condition there is no "extra" value there. The brakes were the result of a brake upgrade kit, again nothing special, just parts. The "Porsche" wheels appear to be aftermarket, most likely Mile Miglia brand and used to be very common, but certainly not worth much compared to real Factory Wheels. Edit: Forgot to add that the Aero Mirrors were some of the most common upgrades that were done years ago and again nothing noteworthy.

The real value in such a pile of parts is to make them into a nicely restored 928, otherwise it is just a lot of used 928 parts.

Hey all,
Please excuse the late replies I've been at work.

I will describe the car in better detail and post a photobucket link when I get home. I am located in Orange County, CA. As far as the price I really haven't given it much thought yet, I came here first to see what the consensus is

Josh, I know! It's quite a bummer but moving requires some downsizing I'm afraid

Bummer for sure but I get it. Wish I had some extra room to store it, seems like a keeper to me. Keep in touch regardless

You are required to post a price under Rennlist rules. I assume you are selling it based on the above.

Hi Linder,
My intentions were not to sell the car in this post hence why there wasn't a price listed. Originally I was curious if the value of a non running car changed based on certain parts. I wasn't expecting as much interest as it got. When I do have it posted for sale I'll place it in the appropriate area with a price.
Thanks
