Yeah, I suspect that's a euphemism for selling off the parts inventory.

In the late Sixties I was acquainted with a guy in Miami whose entire business was selling Gooney Bird parts to the various operators in the Caribbean and South America. He had a warehouseman and a secretary, period, and he would go to gubmint surplus auctions and bid three or four bucks a pound on crates marked "Parts, C-47, OEM, nomenclature unknown". When they arrived at the shop, it was Christmas morning...;-)
