Because of all the reasons you mentioned I'd bid low. I've seen some pretty nice 4dr. rods and I'd leave it that way a lot of rodders are now opting for the "family " car, to take their kids and grandkids (yes grandkids).

What's it worth? It's really hard to tell. It all depends on how much are willing to pay for it.
You could go to other sites like <a href="http://www.traderonline.com" target="_blank">www.traderonline.com</a> or <a href="http://www.dealonwheels.com" target="_blank">www.dealonwheels.com</a> and check what there selling for. That would give you a rough idea. But it all depends on how much you want to spend.
The four doors make a nice rod.

The problem with 4-doors is that after you build one you will have it forever, the market is very slim for a rodded 4-dr Ford.
