Don't be getting all hurt.
You asked.
People responded.
I saw a quote the other day that very aptly applies right now.

I would rather be HURT by TRUTH,
than COMFORTED by LIES!

I am sure there is someone out there that thinks this thing is worth $100,000.oo
Don't know who, but there has got to be at least one out there who does.
I do not have a need for this car.
Therefore I do not highly value this car.
You very well may get more by parting it out, BUT . . . .
what if the engine sells, and then no one wants any of the rest of it?
Now you are stuck with a partial car and no market!
What do you do with the left-overs?
Your best way to get your money back out of it is to get it assembled, and RUNNING.
Make a video of it running, and show the entire car.
If we can see that it IS a good engine, then the value increases GREATLY!

Wow! But here goes. A truly GOOD rebuilt engine (I have heard) these days is around 5-6000 dollars. You mentioned you do not have a detailed receipt for the rebuild but have a receipt stating 2100. I have to wonder does the receipt state "rebuild engine- 2100"? Since the lower cylinder baffles have obviously been left off by the rebuilder, (they are VERY important as far as the cooling system is concerned)... A suggestion for you Jay, finish the project and ENJOY the ride. A running vehicle will certainly bring more than a basket case. Good luck.

You did get positive responses.

Take the first $2K you're offered.
