Chula Vista Salvage Yard Liquidation

Chula Vista Salvage Yard

It isn’t often that a whole salvage yard comes up for sale, especially one with everything from American muscle to European classics and just about everything in between. This salvage yard is in Chula Vista, California and the owner has decided to sell off the whole collection. This fantastic find is listed here on craigslist. Thanks to reader Kyle K for sharing it with us.

Chula Vista Salvage Yard American Cars

There are over 140 cars for sale at this salvage yard, plus a large selection of motorcycles. Many of these cars are in really rough condition and not worth saving, but there are a few gems and a lot of decent parts. We can’t even begin to name all the different cars that we’ve spotted in the photos. A few of the more notable marques we found include Mercedes, Jaguar, Volkswagen, and Nash.

Chula Vista Salvage Yard Volvo Pv

This collection contains a broad mix of makes and models. While there aren’t many of significant value, there are plenty that would be worth checking out. There are several Volvos, including this one which looks to be very solid and complete. It looks like a PV444. but it has a one-piece windshield and a home brew grill so we are not completely sure. There are also several Nashes that appear to be in excellent condition and could be worth picking up. We wish we lived nearby because it would be fun to make a visit just to stroll the lot. Who knows, there may even be a few gems hiding in there that are not visible in the photos.

Chula Vista Salvage Yard Nash

If any of you live in the Chula Vista area and could stop by and check these cars out, we would love to hear about it. Be sure to give the owner a call before stopping by and don’t forget your camera.

    I could really spend a lot of money in a very stupid fashion at this place. That Olds on pg. 14 of the photo album, the Buick on pg. 15 with the period Nixon bumpersticker, the Dart on pg. 12, the half restored Olds on pg. 10….

    Googled it and it looks like 2523 Favre St to me. Towing yard. Probably not one title in the entire lot but lots of interesting vehicles.

    Great to know Pete. I guess the car magazines had me convinced California had declared war on people trying to title hot rods and old cars. It is amazing to an East Coaster that those cars could be so close to the ocean and survive the salt air so well. Judging by the lack of modern accessories (Dubs, gold wires, aftermarket chrome, etc.) it seems those cars have been there a while. I hope those great cars go to good homes and I especially hope that someone scores a nice split window from those three rows of VW’s on the left. Happy Hunting

    I have seen them in person ! Most have been sitting so long that you would be lucky to use them as parts cars ! Rust holes in roofs, hoods, doors, trunk lids , etc. Best of luck if you buy one. Talk to Wes and tell him Gil sent you if you go. ” Like ” my page on Facebook Gil’s Classic Cars !
