Default Advise: Theft recovery now what?

So I didnít post it on here but my 02-180 was stolen in May of last year. I had a good idea who took it but was unable to prove anything. Insurance paid out and the car was recently found with the roof cut off and some panels all cut up and the engine removed. I purchased it back (probably not a good idea) and thought I would repair it or swap the entire drivetrain into a roller body. Now Iím not so sure it has 50k on it and I have everything but would it be worth more to just part everything out rather than make a clone that will always be a clone and hold no value. Itís a sc motor that is completely stock with long tubes I even have the original x pipe hanging in the garage. I have my 99-252 so in some ways I donít really care to keep it I will probably sell it since we are now a family of 5. Just unsure of which way I can recoup my money. Anyone else went through this let me know thanks.

Best path would be to sell batches of parts. Group things together and sell as a lot. Then try and get money back.

If the car is special to you, or if the car had a unique Saleen history, it could be possible to put everything back together... but New Edge cars are just not in the "saving" mode right now.
