Hi All,
Getting ready to sell my 87 GT convertible. It needs some work but the body is pretty straight and not rusty.

No motor, trans, needs a new dash wiring harness.
Seats need to be reupholstered
Top looks good
Comes with all the dash, interior parts, most of the engine components (PS pump, ac, etc)

I did post it on a local site for a couple days and got interest, but most everyone was throwing me offers that were trash. What should I ask for something like this? Should I just post it on bringatrailer?

$300-$400 sounds like they could be offering scrap prices which, in the stage of disassembly the pictures show, would be warranted. Now you need someone like me to come along who has a project car that they're working on where yours is actually in better shape. That person might pay more. But someone who casually comes across an ad for a car that's torn apart like what yours shows isn't going to bite on it for a price much more than scrap. In their eyes they're doing you a favor by getting it out of your hair. I was thinking that if you threw it out there for somewhere between $500-$1000, you might get some traffic. But in it's current state of disassembly I wouldn't count on a lot.

Bummer, it is not rusty so I thought that would be a good selling point. Most 4 cylinder rusted out foxs go for 1000-1500 around here.

No rust IS a selling point, but it is what it is for most people - and that's a shell with a LOT of work to make a running and driving car. So you're looking to sell a niche product. :shrug:
