Default Misc Buick Eight roadmaster chrome

Found a flattened (long ago bulldozed) (1948ish) Buick Eight Roadmaster 4 door out in the woods on public land while hunting. Saved basically all that was left on the rusted heap, I have:
-passenger outer headlight trim ring
-both rott free headlight buckets with inner rings(driver is slightly damaged but fixable)
-One front signal trim ring with screws
-heat/vent/warmer knobs
-grill with partial surround for chrome only (center tooth and center surround missing all other pieces are nice/restorable, grill structure is rotten/cut where it came off)
-possibly a front bumper(i will be going back there this week to do a once over possibly again if I hunt the same area and hoped to be able to cut it loose)
There was an 8 cyl inline core about 10 feet from the car with part of a bell housing and a snapped off input shaft in the clutch. The core was on its side, head down hill and manifold facing down; the dipstick showed a film of mostly black greasy dry oil with some dusty oxidization in it, I swear to God I got it to turn roughly 1/8 inch. Valve cover was gone, valve train was heavily damaged toward the front. If you want me to look for anything you have untill tomorow till Im no longer reachable for the next 4 days. After this it will be burried in snow again and I wont be back till next year. It took me roughly 15 minutes to id, this heap is pretty unrecognizable especially now that the grill is gone. I figured it would be a shame to let all of it rott. I would like to sell the chrome and parts I have as a lot, I will not pay for shipping if I do get this bumper off. I'd like arround $300 for all of it, of course I dont need any of it so I'll consider all offers, just didnt want to see it go to waste. If you want engine parts I will give you the location of the wreck site to get them yourself(you will need an off road vehicle capable of 12-16" deep river crossing), unless the parts are extremely valuable and you will pay me in advance I dont want to mess with it. I'm a gunsmith, so I will also take trade for gun parts/accessories, I particularly like ar parts(I know what things are worth, so please dont waste my time with cheap plastic rails, shot out barrels, or worn out or other take off parts). I work under an FFL so If you have beater gun(s) you would be willing to trade of decent value I can legally do transfers. Legally I cant accept ammo because of cali laws. If you have IH parts to trade It will depend on what you have. Located near Lincoln California. Please message here/PM me for more info. Pics are of what I found, not nessesarily what I have.

*edit: added a pic of the parts I have, havnt had time to take detailed pics yet. Also I never got the bumper off, ran out of time.

Price drop to $200, all offers will be considered, I'd like to get the space this stuff is taking up back.
