The '51 P4 and the P5 with the rusty hood look like parts cars but the
others don't look half bad.  Agreed, they aren't worth a lot but I think
they would probably fetch between $500 and $1000 each on Ebay.  The
running '64 model 90 would probably do better.  If they can be picked up
for scrap prices they would be worth buying to resell.
