Where to buy written off or salvage titles in Calgary?

Looking to swap my Bronco body onto a newer f150 frame. Cheapest way I can figure is to find an f150 thats been in a fender bender that wrote it off. Assuming there is no damage to the frame that is.

I'd love a newer 5.0 or 6.2 but would also do an Eco if I found the right donor. Would like to swap the dash and interior over as well.

Does anyone know a place in Calgary that does salvage title auctions or sells these written off vehicles?

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

I posted the question to a good buddy from my 62 Cadillac forum who is pretty connected to the hotrod and old car community in Calgary and happens to be close friends with a hell of a ford engine builder

I will let you know what his reply is

here is what he sent me back



I have a friend who routinely goes around to the local wrecking yards and salvages easily fixed vehicles. He buys them, patches them up, drives them for a while and sells them on. His eye casts a pretty wide net. I will call him today. When the poster refers to "newer, does he have a specific range in mind?


Here is an example from a Saskatchewan government insurance website...

Here is a link to the actual auction site...

Here is a Calgary auction site. This listing is for F-150's...

Wow, thanks for the info!

2011 to 2014 F150's ideally. Looking for a lariat or higher because they had the auto 4x4 setting as well as 4high, 4low and 2wd. Plus heated and cooled seats in a bronco? **** yeah haha

These guys used an stx or base model xlt and transfered everything over. I've seen a raptor frame used as well where they even cut the door panels to fit the bronco...still not sure how they did that but it's the goal.

Salvage salvage is good. They're in Edmonton.
