I need advice on how to sell this project car. It's located near Birminham, AL. The former owner started a total restoration, but did not complete the job. It includes many rare and NLA new parts, as well as a rebuilt engine. This car had been offered on BAT but did not sell. You can see the listing on BringATrailer. Just search under 1973 SEL in completed auctions. What's the best approach here? Sell it as a lot, or part it out? Any advice would be appreciated.

My opinion , if it is all there , Id keep advertising, ebay , craigslist and such ,even Hemmings. your reserve may need adjusted ?
Remember ,someone ( and not anyone) can put this back together and barring any issues or extra expense it MAY be worth 13-15K. If it were taken to concours - 25 -29K max
Id say there are many hours needed to make this right, plus it would have the cost of shipping

That said - I'd love to have that project , but COVID equals no money , and in reality Id say many are in the same boat. Tough time to be selling anything IMHO

Grubeguy, here you go: He's sunk over $100K into it so far.... auction bid to $5100.

Concourse is $31K, backtrack final paint and assy +++ to get to what most would want to pay.

Cheap. Down here it would be 100k easy when finished or 30k as is.
