Yer some wreckers will sell you the whole car.
Try the local auctions.

yeah they will sell a complete car but they will rip you off.
Ring a few insurance companies and ask what they do with written off cars.
Go to the auctions and get what your after.
Wreaked falcons come pretty cheap and you could even pick up a sweet EL ghia for under 5k.
Just make sure the crash damage hasn't wreaked anything you want.

Breathe! It's only the internet....

you would be surprised. If you dont need an engine and trans you might be in luck. When I was searching for a project car I wanted a rolling shell. I locatea an EA2 fairmont with a 90% perfect body. the guy asked $500 for it which I jumped at. So far I have put the interior, rrear garnish (as they were the EA Ghia type) the diff which was a 3.23. other handy extras I now have are MPI fuel pump, air con system, p/s pump, steering rack, tailshaft, headlights, taillights and the list goes on. If you out loking just pay attention to the particular model and try to look what diff it has in it as you may want a shorter diff ratio in the future. Other than that happy hunting.
