Step Down Parts

All right friends. When I bought my 51 Hornet, it came with a 16' box truck worth of spares. I have finally started looking through some of the boxes and here is the first part of the haul. I can't imagine needing all of this, perhaps someone here does?

First is I assume a NOS dash board. As you can see from the second picture, it's not perfect due to some small scratches above the gauge cluster but it is pretty dang nice.

Next is a fair bit of trim pieces. Most of the pot metal is not great but some is pretty nice. The gauge cluster specifically looks brand new and was in a plastic bag. There's also a speedo and clock, don't know if they work. The glass lenses for all the lights are pretty nice too. Is any of this worth anything to any of you? 

***edited because I bought a 51 hornet not a 54. I was however writing the post with my 4 year old so maybe that's how that happened? Hope that didn't mess anyone up.

    Where are you located?  Looks like a nice dashboard.  I think you will find a home for it.

    I am in north east Ohio. Akron to be exact. I would say the dash and the gauge bezel are far and away the nicest parts in the haul. By the way, there are two more bins full of stuff, plus fenders, hood, trunk lid, glass, suspension parts, a rear end, brake drums, like 4 or 5 heater control units that go under the dash, one twin H air cleaner, exterior stainless... the list goes on. If only there was a damn voltage regulator.

    If you have a pair of headlight bezels that are not pitted and flat on the back, i.e., don't rock when they are laying on a flat surface, I would be interested in them. (drop the HET before sending)

    @RL Chilton, I think all the head light bezels seem to rock when you lay them flat. I'm sorry.

    @Lance, there are two arm rests that I've found so far. There is the one pictured originally and one in in this picture in this post. They don't seem to match and I'm not sure if they are front or rears. There are pictures of the air cleaner, and cables below.

    You need a voltage regulator? I may have an extra, have to check the stash.

    I actually just found one, of course after I bought one. It's ok, the one I found is pretty crusty, I am not sure I'd trust it. Got some more pictures taken today.

    Anyone need brake parts?

     Here's stuff I still have to unpack

    Hey Sacksenheim,
    If those are the 11 X 2.25 front brakes I may be interested in them.
    I want to adapt the backing plates shoes and drums to my car if you have it all.

    I'm interested in the trans floor pan. It's for hydra matic , but I can use it. I'm sure it'd be easier to pick up rather than mess with shipping.. :)

    JJ, I'll measure tonight.

    Jase, I'm in Akron, Ohio. Where are you?

    I'm glad people are interested in these parts. When I walked out of the basement today I thought to myself, "If no one wants any of this crap then it must all be scrap and will be disposed of accordingly." I would feel a little bit guilty but I can't devote half my basement to a dusty collection of parts no one wants.

    I'm in Western Va, along I-81. You're about 3-4 hours from me, so an easy trip. Have to check the schedule and see what my employee coverage is, so I know when I can get away.

    Great! Just let me know. I only work ten minutes from home so as long as I don't have military duty I am generally available any day of the week, any time of the day.
