94 RRC Parting it out???

Hi guys, Got some sad news today. My Classic, my wife's daily driver, over heated badly and now has as much water than oil in the motor.
I'm selling all my Rover stash already to pay the bills. So, I don't have the money to fix it. I'm torn between selling it as is, or parting it out. Any advice?
It's an 94 Alpine White, County with 120k original miles. Leather seats, etc.
Any advice?
Thanks in advance,
Raul

Got any pictures? What would you want if you sold it as is?

Here are some quick ones I dug up. We're at Big Bear, New Years 2 years ago,man great times with this truck. Not sure on a price, I guess I'd take offers and weigh it out vs parting it out. I'm the second owner and It's always been in California... I'll take some more detailed pics when I bring it back from the shop.

I should mention the original owner put Bilstein shocks, so no air suspension... which I think is a way better ride with shocks.

Sounds like a simple blown head gasket. This, unfortunately, is one of the Rover V8 signature features. You can get the gaskets set for about a hundred bucks. The rest is all wrenching. Set aside a weekend and make it happen.

That's absolutely not the case. EAS rides way way better than coils.

Do not part that out. How's the rest of the truck? You'll put more effort into parting it than fixing it. Let me know what kind of money you want for it.

I don't feel confident enough to pull a job like that. If I were to part it out I'd have somebody remove the big stuff.
Wife has been asking me to sell it for a while now because of gas. She's the one who drives it, and does a lot of running around with the kids.
It's a great truck, but I think it's time to let it go and get another daily driver for the wife.
Going to have to think this over for a few days. Thanks for you're input guys.
