Default 2002 V40S Overheated Engine

Hi folks,
My negligence led to my dear old Volvo V40 Estate recently having its 134,000 miles engine roasted by coolant escape on the motorway.
My enquiries since about engine repairs evidently make this a futile exercise given the engine won't start and I can smell exhaust fumes from the coolant bottle.
So, it would appear the end is nigh.
Offers from scrap merchants range from 150 to 60 for the complete car, inclusive of pick-up from my doorstep.
Having owned Volvos continuously since 1983 - I always meant to join the VOC!!!! - I'm anxious that anyone who can make good use of secondary spares such as the towbar, handbrake cable, battery, sound system, etc., please contact me.
Best regards,
