Default Market for GMC V6 parts

My father was a GMC dealer from 1954 to 2004. He is gone now and we will be cleaning out his shop and various storage sheds. Everything is a mess now, thanks to my idiot nephew and so I am trying to see what the V6 parts might be worth and is it worth the effort to go through is all and separate those out. I think I know enough to sort it, but wanted the opinion of members on this board as to whether or not it is worth the time. I have no idea how much there is, but i know of at least two short blocks and some heads. There is a dark back room that may hold more.

Geasson, I feel it would be worthwhile to sort through the V6 parts and see what you discover.

I agree. Go to the Marketplace section, take pictures of what you have, and post it up. Some of us have been looking for specific hard to find parts for ages. You might have some real treasures in there. And if not, you've lost an afternoon and got to handle some of the stuff your dad got to handle. Count that as a win in any book.

Some people are like slinkys. Not worth much but funny as heck when pushed down stairs.

I am sure there will be a lot of takers for items you run across. If you need assistance in IDing items I am sure that members here would be happy to assist you. Don't forget the oldgmctrucks.com folks as they have vehicles going back to when your father started dealing in GMCs.

I agree with everyone also - v6 parts are hard to find and so are many gmc-specific parts, in general. Please take the time and list your parts on the site - we would all appreciate it and you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing parts your Father dealt in are getting put to the proper use
