Well the aftermarket grill makes it look like its been wrecked. That is a style choice that immediately turns most enthusiasts off. You also don't touch on the key weak points of the car. Head gasket bone dry, no seepage whatsoever? Wiring harness original or replaced? Transmission has strong reverse and good shifting? Soft top has original hydraulics? ASR car or non-ASR car? All essential items enthusiasts are going to want to know. If some of the common problems have been done, its a bonus to you.
You're also trying to sell a convertible while going into winter.
...and everybody is going to negotiate, regardless of how good of a deal it is, no matter what. That's the business. Perhaps a higher asking price will yield the offers you seek from off the street and craigslist.
