Valuable parts on write-off IS300?

Hello; my 2004 IS300 is off to the big parking lot in the sky, after someone ran a red and was t-boned by my car. My front end and frame has too much damage to fix, plus airbags went, but engine and everything rear of the windshield is OK. If the insurance company lets me grab things I want off it before it is scrapped, what should I get? I can't exactly hoist the engine out, but if it can be taken off in a parking lot with hand tools I'm up for it. What are easy-to-remove and easy-to-resell parts, such as the rear tail light housings?

Thank you for any thoughts you have on this!

Tail lights, trunk, wheels, interior, dash cluster, speedometer. Insurance will likely make you buy the car back. Good luck, glad you survived.

i dont recall off the top of my head, but i would think you could atleast get 1-1.5k if your manual package is complete and the trans isnt junk or doesnt have a million miles. when i say 'complete' im talking keys, ecu, etc.

the problem is you really dont see many complete manual swaps for sale out there. i know a fair amount of people who have swapped either piece their swap together or get a wrecked car.

Guys look at the date on the post. Also he only posted this ever. Plus in the wrong section.
