Killer you make a very good point! A guy who wants to restore a 67 Camaro doesn't want to buy it because the engine is already done. (as dinger pointed out maybe pulling the engine would be better). Yet, someone who wants a good "driver" doesn't want to buy it because it has no paint.

Well, pulling the engine is out of the question because 1) I don't have the time 2) A recent accident with 8 broken bones makes it nearly impossible to tie my shoes, much less pull an engine. I really do appreciate all the advice from my fellow gearheads.

At this point I'm considering either: sell it on ebay AS IS to test the waters with a reserve about $7500 which I think is a fair price (even though I still lose about 3 thousand) OR throw a cheapie paint job on it and some SS badging and jack the price up accordingly. A complete car with paint sure would attract more buyers.
