I think that the first impression, the appearance, goes a long way towards selling a car. You've been honest about the mechanical issues but a dirty, unkept look makes it appear that the problems are a result of lack of care and neglect. If you have the car detailed it at least shows that you have taken care of the aspects of the car that anyone can do in their own driveway. I personally would not buy a car that was dirty and unkept looking, I would be very suspicious of the mechanical care it had and how many more problems may be lurking due to poor upkeep.
Some people make dust...The rest eat dust.
