Need to sell my 1975 project car and looking to offer it to enthusiasts before any auction or posting to others. Lot of info follows.... just want to be thorough.

Vehicle background
1975 (originally) with many conversion parts and equipment to be a track car. Bought from a mechanic that worked at Carl's Place in Las Vegas in 2006. Vehicle sat there for a few years, then after purchase ran for about 8 months until could not get the intake combination to pass emissions back then. 2006 installation of a Raby 2.2 piston kit; new valve seats; Had single barrel Weber conversion from EFI then. Have brand new carpet set (not installed); Today, dual Webers installed, but never ran with this package. Car then sat since 2006 garaged since then (currently in Indiana).

Current Vehicle state
The GOOD
Solid body (see pics), have all exterior trim and most all interior (lacking OEM seats); since vehicle was track event car a few years ago, has 3 point roll bar, locations for 5-point harness, Riviera (I believe) wheels and OEM alloys as well, oil cooler; appears to be lowered (cannot verify what was done by mechanic previously); Weber downdraft conversion (in process); rebuilt carbs; leather dashboard in EXCELLENT condition; have (2) Corbeau Clubman (I believe) seats ready to install (have modified tracks; CLEAR title

The BAD
Has not been run since 2006; known needs are completion of the throttle linkage; frozen left rear disc to pad; trunk torsion spring (have rods, but no bushings) need t install throttle cable; brake system obviously requires flush and refresh; Relay block may need some understanding or refurbishment to run...

Value
Not sure, requires a lot of work, but is solid (hell hole battery tray has only evidence of acid rust through); I have it advertised on the Indianapolis area Craigslist for $3850......need to sell real soon due to moving out of state.
Take a look at the photos; they will tell a lot. If needed, I can provide more photos or video. Car needs an enthusiast home so that it can be preserved.

Although it can sometimes be difficult to establish a value, the forum rules states that you must post a price.

Put a really high price on it so I can't buy it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

You know it sat in the back of Carl's Place (beside Carl's wrecked 911!) for a few years. Just saying!.....

Last time I was at Carl's was around 2001 when I was buying an H gearset and a dusty -6 combo gauge. Then I had the Nissan swap running and was actually selling off extras. Now a complete car is worth more than the sum of it's parts and it's worth doing a restomod. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

Luckily for me the wheel is seized so it can't be put on a transport and shipped back. Plus Cracker says I need to limit myself (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif)

Saw that you had it listed for $3,850. Looking through all of the pictures it would seem that if it runs, you are likely very well within the ballpark on price. But with that said, there are enough unknowns to make people want to offer you less. Just be prepared for that. I am a tough buyer when it comes to "project' cars. If I were selling (which I am not so my opinion is worthless) I would have the expectation for people to make low offers on this.

I see a lot of potential for someone to get a good starting point for a car. I see enough potential that were it close I would look at it myself but it is just to far away.

Great advice. I appreciate your perspective.

If I were closer, I'd take a look. This is better value for $ at 3850 than what I paid for my project car, I think you are within the ballpark.
