You may have a hard time getting that much for the car. It will depend on what model it is, how many miles it has and its condition.

LOL. Any junkyard will give you at least $200 for the vehicle for scrap metal value. You would get more selling off its parts individually on eBay or Craigslist, but two grand? Good luck with that.

In good condition the car is worth around $4500 (according to but it requires $2000-$3000 for the transmission and another $1500 for a Honda catalytic converter. It will be tough to find a buyer at any price but the most likely buyer will be somebody who is going to put in a wrecking yard transmission himself. $1500 would be a price you could both live with - ask $3000 and let him bargain down from there.

I lived in Teheran for about a year when I was young. My dad took me along to the bazaar a couple of times and from what I saw your dad is probably one of the toughest bargainers in the world.
