Last month I purchased a complete set of front drums and brakes that came off a TriFive for the same reason. They only saw a couple hundred miles on the other car.
I paid $70 for them at a swap meet and plan on installing them on my 57' as I can't afford the disc upgrade yet and I do need front brakes.
That said, I don't think I would have paid to have them shipped to me.

Can't say when you might run across someone, that might need them. If they are not in your way keep em. :tu

I'm just a pack rat, I keep all this kind of stuff in case there's a need.
The brakes and spindles aren't worth much - except to the guy that needs them.

I have mine sitting in my storage trailer and have not even had an offer in two years, still cannot bring myself to scrap them, Henry.

There is defiantly a market for these parts. Someone with an original car with a bad spindle or hub will want your old parts. If the master cylinder is an original GM part it is also in demand with restorers.
The classifieds (http://www.trifive.com/classified/external.php?type=RSS2) on this site would be a good place to list them. Craigslist or ebay will also work.

i could probably use those drums but the shipping!

Definitely don`t scrap the spindles. Even the guys running disc brakes that use the stock spindle have a need for them.

I'm in the same boat, I have the stock drums(4) spindles, steering box steering linkage and a whole lot of other stuff that I will never use but I can't bring myself to throw it out. It's sacrilegious sooner or later there will be some guy restoring a Tri-5 that will need something I have.

I have a pair of upper control arms with the original High dome ball joints still pop riveted in from a 64K mile 57 Chevy.
Im going to list them on ebay but not sure what they may be worth.
I vote you keep the stuff!
