Basically you have 2 choices. Try again to sell it the way it is, or have a GOOD paint job done and try for top dollar.
You've got a lot of money tied up in the drive train and like Deuce says:
BUT a lot of folks who want a hopped up ride, want to do it themselves OR do not trust others selection of parts and workmanship. More even believe they can build it better for less
It's going to be tough to sell like it is for what you'd like to get. I'd pull that engine and put in a wrecking yard engine, save any speed parts you can, you can probably still get 4-5 grand for the car. Dan
