Default 72 small block ac brackets & compressor, any value?

Wondering if this stuff is worth anything....Since I am using '63 camel hump heads, my a/c brackets will no longer work. I did find a source for aftermarket brackets, but they will only fit a modern Sanden 508 compressor. So, I have my original brackets that have been restored, (all 6 of them bead blasted, primed and painted the correct sheen of black) with all the bolts, and this big 'ol A6 compressor (also cleaned up and painted) taking up half my shop bench. The parts are off a 70K mile cali car, the a/c was blowing nice and cold when removed in october, What do you think?

Crappy pic from my phone:

whatever the core value on the compressor, figure about 1/2 that for someone. Unfortunately most of this stuff is so big and bulky nobody wants to hoard this stuff, (unless your me). jim

i'm in the smme boat, I have all teh ac stuff, plus the waterpump, ps pump, and other accessory brackets. Can't bring myself to throw it away but nobody seems to want it. Maybe i'll keep it 20 years for when people want to restore the cars back to v belts from serp belts....?

I could use the bracket that goes over the valve cover if it's the same as a '69.

People are still looking for those parts. You just have to be patient til they find you. Right now eveyone is putting a big block or newer engine in thier cars. So the small block brackets will move a little slower. Do NOT throw away. You will regret it down the road. Give away if you must be rid of them.

A guy on here got ahold of me and wants the stuff, so if the deal goes through great, if not I'll throw it in the attic.

SEE, it took a short while, but they found you. That was fast.
