3 of the Best Cars to Pull for Parts at a Salvage Yard

When undertaking a car project, your costs can get out of hand quickly. Whether you're doing a simple repair or a full restoration, Orthodox Auto Company can help you manage your costs by allowing you to find quality parts at a fraction of the cost of buying new. If you're considering checking out the salvage yard in search for used auto parts, here are some common types of cars to look for that can help you on your project.

1. Police Cars

High mileage or damaged police cars often find themselves in the salvage yard and are in surprisingly pretty good shape. True, most police cars will have high speed usage which can result in diminished value for some parts, but it's still worth a look if you’re in the market.

2. Vintage Cars

Since all cars eventually break down, you can often find vintage cars at the junkyard that are worth restoring. Even if restoration isn't your cup of tea, there are often parts that can be easily salvaged. For example, the Ford Model A and Chevrolet Bel Air were both common cars several years ago and can be found at most junkyards.

3. Luxury Automobiles

This may be slightly surprising, but many wealthy individuals donate their cars to salvage yards to avoid having to deal with a dealership or going through the selling process. If you've always wished of owning a luxury automobile but have never wanted to spend the money, a junkyard find could be the perfect opportunity to find a great car for a great price.
