Default Parts Car or sell whole?

Hey yall, it's been awhile since my last post and I bring bad news, the C3 must go : (. I'm moving out of state for a job promotion and I can't take the old girl with me, really bummed. So my question today is, could I get more bang for my Buck by parting it out or selling the whole thing as a parts car? It's an auto 81 with a TH400 non operational with an entire new cooling system and rear suspension. It's got almost everything on it, but it's not pretty. Original owner unfortunately abused her : (.

parting it out could take awhile .. guess it depends on what you need to get for it

I'll need around $5k to break even which is why I'm more lenient to part it out. I think I have around 3-4 months left to do this, possibly less time. Idk, I'm gunna check out the market and see what the possibilities are.
