For starters, let's see some photos.
I don't see how photos make any difference. It is a new car being built that had a lost gas tank. all the sheetmetal is new except unibody frame. The unibody frame was sandblasted down to white metal on a giant rotisierre so it is also about as close to new as can be made. It was shot with ppg epoxy primer and 3m undercoat. The doors, decklid, and hood are aluminum. They were sandblasted at lower pressures and painted with PPG aircraft primer. The only thing there for pictures is just a new unpainted shell with drivetrain. A bare naked car.
The dip-n-strip in atlanta lost the gas tank.
It needed a gas tank before painting.
it needed painting before interior, electrical, and plumbing.
all the other stuff is still just sitting in boxes. Some assembly required.
new headlights, new tail lights, new rubber, new carpet, new grille, new top, new seats, new alloy wheels, new new new.
If you put $5000 into misc. parts + interior chrome refinishing, a paint job, and a few months of hobby time into it then you would have a show car of nearly perfect quality. I just have no idea what they are worth in any condition. "what I have in it" is meaningless. I was building a new car. How many people want a 50 year old new car? I had just over $30,000 into it when we moved to Tampa in 1995.
