I just pulled my 12 bolt and put in a new rear end.

The 12 bolt is factory original from my 1969 SS 325 HP car. It has 144,000 miles on it. It's been pretty abused. One of the axle tubes leaks a little. The webbing is drilled for no hop bars. Original axles and posi, though it was rebuilt about 20 years ago.

Is this worth anything?

Trying to decide if I should try to sell it or if I should rebuild it, weld up the tubes, etc., and maybe put it in something else down the road. Or pull the 3.55s out and sell those, and scrap the rest? (Don't know if I could bring myself to get rid of it!)

Yeah, I know I could never scrap it. I am going to rebuild it and maybe put it back in some day, if I restore it all to original.

I've had the car a long time, and I don't think I could part with any of it. It will be fun to rebuild.

All cleaned up and painted, what do you think it would be worth?

chances are with that many miles, your bearing surfaces are worn on the axles and that's likely the reason the one tube leaks. You can usually get a few more miles out of stock axles by using axle saver bearings, but for 165 or so you can get new Yukons. Seals and bearings go out about every 70k or so if your in the salt belt. The webbing is easily fixed, so long as nothing is seriously rusted up the housing itself unrestored is worth about 5oo bucks.
