I do hope the seller can take away some positive things from this thread to actually get this thing sold, albeit at a reasonable price.
People have bought and restored cars in much worse shape (I'm working on one myself, but the shell didn't cost me $10,000, more like $500; without a motor and gearbox).
To the OP, no one is trying to disparage what you have, but to ask $10,000 for this does make it laughable in today's market, considering what else there is out there for that kind of money or even less.
I reasonable price for this is about half of what you're asking. Otherwise, invest that $5000 into new floor panels, some bodywork, paint, and then you could have a car worth $15,000 or more. As long as you're up-front about the damage the car has had and show that it was professionally (and more importantly, competently repaired) repaired, a potential buyer would feel much more comfortable with this car.
