They must have enough spare parts from the other cars to not need to strip these ones.

I think you're right that and the amount of time and money spent decommissioning these cars may no longer be feasible.

 

And if anybody's interested these cars are going for $1

I'm dead serious.... You just need to arrange the pickup and shipping.

Any idea if I could acquire one of the rollsigns on these things?

I call dibs on a dashboard, destination sign, set of doors, drive brake lever assembly and a push to open door button display thingy.

I'm not sure how the public would be able to acquire anything you would have to probably get a hold of Transit.

There's an abundance of spare parts by the sound of things.. "it will be years" before we see the U2s out of service.

There's still time.
