Does anyone know roughly how much an a/c compressor, receiver, condensor, and a complete set of hoses might be worth. I am trying to auction them off an I haven't gotten any bids?

Heres some wild guesses based on what I have purchased.

The hoses, if they are intact and original are probably worth the most, easily 50 to 75 per hose, but I would only dump them as a set. They are not reproduced, and the compressor fittings with the muffler are not available anymore.

Compressor = 50 to 75, can get rebuilt ones from classic industries for about 150, so that is the upper limit.
Condenser = 150 or so, can get new ones from Classic Industries for 225 so you cant go much higher than that.
Evaporator and firewall suit case = small block maybe $75 to $150, big block $250 plus. These are with all the parts attached to them. The blower motor resistor for a 69 is unique and not reproduced so it might have a value of $50 to $75 by itself.

All underhood components including the brackets, pulleys, etc. but minus the hoses should be in the $400 range for a small block.

Certain components can be worth a ton by themselves, the air dams that attach to the cocktail shakers for a convertible, and the lower air dam for a big block that attaches to the lower edge of the core support, and front edge of the frame are each worth a ton of $$ to the right person.

I saw the auctions and waited for ever for the pics but they didn't show. I would be interested in the hoses. I'll check later.
I sell alot of items on E-Bay. Car parts, Many Tools from my business, and Antiques. One thing that takes a while for bids is the 10 day auction. (I usually use the 7 or 5 day auction). Most people will bid in the last 3 days. If there is alot of items in your catagory people will not look through all the pages of items.
Usually the first 2 pages.
Also a hint to help, The title for your A/C hoses is "Hoses".
Revise the auction title to:
1971 71 Chevy Nova A/C Hoses!!!
When you revise the auction title copy this title line and post it where you have just "Hoses".
Put the whole line even the ex. marks.
It will make a difference. When people do title searches for items you are covering a many different areas.
example:: 1971 A/C Hoses, or 71 Nova, or Nova A/C, and so on.
It will help with your auctions to get more people viewing you items. You will see the difference.
Just tring to help.
