Interesting question...No way a car dealer or MOST private party buyers would consider it (unless they want to salvage it for parts). Local chop shop probably would give you the most for it....But then, you'd have to have connections to some pretty shady individuals...LOL! But seriously, I'd check out a Toyota Camry enthusiasts forum, like this one and ask your question there: http://www.camryforums.com/

The scrapyards in my area pay $300.

..and those scrapyards probably make a helluva lot more in selling off the car's parts piece by piece too!

Thanks for your answers. I had a word with my dealer he said he would tear engine apart and diagonse the problem in which labor charges will cost me same as the kbb value for the car. Second option he gave me to to get new engine and that too will cost me high. I am afraid to spend this much amount on the car. Any suggestions....should I go for engine change or sell the car on whatever amount I can get

duashveta...You should, in my opinion, just cut your losses and not go with EITHER suggestion from the Dealer. The Toyota Dealer will charge you a King's ransom to tear the engine apart ...The labor costs to do this will be high as you mentioned. New Engine + Installation of the Engine will cost more....BUT you do have a 1999, so perhaps you could get a rebuilt engine for less money? If it were me, I'd just sell the car off to a scrapyards or see what suggestions you get from a Toyota Camry forum, like the one I listed above. I personally am NOT a fan of the Camry, but THOSE folks in car specific forums eat, drink, and breathe whatever make & model of car the forum is designed for! PLUS, there are usually mechanics and other techie types who frequent them. Good Luck!!

I have a issue kind of the opposite. I have a 1999 Toyota Camry, it's wrecked on the front. But motor is good we even drove it to a different location after wreck ! Can you please give me advice on what I should do, should we sell it or find a shell to put motor in ???
