Ahh I see. Yeah that has a very nice stance to it. If I were fortunate enough to have your car I think I'd drop it an inch all the way around and throw the steelies on it. Wish you were closer and I had the room!
I wouldn't touch a thing regarding the current stance. I prefer the look of some young and strong springs in the rear, and yes, not too much wheelwell in the front. I think it looks perfect as-is. You can always lower the rear by throwing a few dozen bricks in the trunk.
Classic cars fetch the most money when they are perceived as unmolested and original. While the webers may be an improvement, I think max dollar would be achieved with perfectly functioning zeniths. That brings to mind your mention of the webers needing some further tuning. That's something that any prospective buyer is going to want to know about. You've shown your skill at producing videos. I would think that it would save you time in the long run to take a video showing when and how the webers give you trouble. Could be tiny issue. Could be massive. We don't know. Just trying to help.
The last really nice coupe I saw sell was over $13,000 on ebay, but it had a sunroof and was supposedly absolutely perfect. I bet you could make your car perfect if you keep at it. I think it should be able to fetch $10,000 if perfect.
My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.
