Price a replacement motor along with installation costs as the first step.

The decision to sell or part is not an easy one, do you have the room to store the vehicle and the time & know how to pull the parts and sell them off one by one? I have a wrecked Swift in my driveway with a good motor (less than 40k miles from a full rebuild) that I can't even give away - sure people want parts, a mirror here, a steering wheel there, brake booster, two people have said they want the entire car, but never came back.
