Seems like I'm the only one that's gonna say don't part it out. I have an old MG, and it depresses me to see perfectly-running cars being parted out. MX-6s are rare enough as it is, having one less rare car on the road isn't a good idea in my mind.

I regularly go to (used car dealer) auctions. Last night I saw a 91 MX-6 4 cyl automatic in good condition. with over 100000 miles go for almost $3000 (this is wholesale, remember). I've seen 2nd gen MX-6s in badly beat-up condition go for $2000. So the car still has some value on both the wholesale and retail market if the price is right and it looks good.

I have 105K on my 95 and it's still going strong. How many miles are on the car in question? Surely they're good for 200000 miles or more.

I'd say definitely don't part it out. It looks as good as mine or better, and has twice as many miles on it!

A drivetrain with that many miles on it will not be worth much on the used market other than as a core, even if it's in excellent running condition and is possibly good for 50000-100000 more miles.

Like another poster said, you'd have a lot of headache dealing with shipping car parts everywhere, but maybe it's not an issue for some people.

Definitely give it a go trying to sell it whole. If you're located near MS, I'll be happy to find out about helping you wholesale it.
