confused SALVAGE VALUE for 1986 RANGER?????

1986 Ford Ranger 2.3L / 4Cyl./ 5-speed. / 140 CID SOHC. ORIGINAL OWNER, with TITLE! I recently, within six months ago, replaced within a few months, New Fuel filter, New TFI Engine control module, New battery, New Starter, New fuel/computer relays, New Ignition starter switch, Plugs & wires, Cap and rotor, and other miscellaneous items. Last December, I installed a new Sony MP3/CD/AM-FM/AUX/USB RADIO -CDX-GT40U- Two Sony 6.5" CXS-GT4016F Speakers.

Someone hit me November 21, and I now need to salvage it. This truck has passed smog every two years and has original engine with 155,975.0 and ran great! And now, it's not repairable, so I am now trying to find the most money for salvage I can get.

When you look at the salvage value, do you INCLUDE these new parts I recently installed or not? By removing the radio myself, do I get less...OR...IS THIS PRICE, AS IS? Should I just get what I can, then walk away?

I know I've been on these forums a lot over these many years, but this is the first Total loss of any vehicle I've ever known, so I really don't know what to expect for value.
On the replacement LOSS value of this truck, would $2,000.00 to be acceptable for a non-fault claim?

Re: SALVAGE VALUE for 1986 RANGER?????

Depends on your insurance co. Everything you replaced is Normal maintanance. Does not
increase the value of your truck. They will pay you for the stereo. If you take it out they will deduct from your claim. If you think you can get $2000.00 for your truck you are dreaming. Wholesale value on that truck is $100.00. Yours being 26 years old is not even on the list. It stops at 10 years. That is how or insurance works. Don't know what yours does. When they total loss your car what do they do with it ? Ours go to the compound and they are auctions off. You can buy your vehicle back but if it is irrepairable you strip it for parts and cannot be put back on the road. Again don't know what your co. does but this is what can and does happen.
