would like some input on a possible car sale in the future

been pondering the sale of my 63 boxtop galaxie as a ROLLER (no engine and trans) and am not sure what would be a rough asking price for these items, i got to thinking the more money i put into it to go faster i could just start with something else, i was looking at a alter set up that i could put my 557 in. Here is what the car has

-1963 boxtop galaxie set up for 460 and c-6
-8 pt roll cage
-9" ford with 3.89 gears with 28 spline dutchman axles and a detroit locker, new brakes and hardware
-new 7 leaf heavy duty springs with new bushings and caltracs installed
-competition engineering shocks
-10 gal fuel cell in the trunk with trunk mounted battery and master kill switch
- 15x10 pro-star rear wheels with 315/60/15 drag radials and 15x4 pro-stars up front with 29 x 4.5 tires
- 71 torino spindles with single piston disk and dual resivior master cylinder
-new bushings and ball-joints with new station wagon with a/c springs
-crites fiberglass fenders, inner fenders, core support, teardrop hood, bumpers, bumper brakets and deck lid
-interior has 2 high back bucket race seats, and thats it, has new carpet and radio and heater delete panels are installed
-crites headers 2" primarys with 3.5 collectors ( since it was set up for a 460) and 3.5" stainless exhaust with x-pipe going to straight through dynomax mufflers with turn downs before the axle would come with it also

the pictures show my other back wheels but those are pro-stars now


like i said i'm putting some feelers out to see what it might bring, thanks for your guy's input once i do/if i decide to put it up there would be detailed pictures of all also

rick
sorry for the double post

Why would you want to sell that??...Your car is bad ***, and the thing that makes people like it is because it is unique!!

Sure you could go faster with a cookie-cutter Foxbody...but your car has class!!

I could go faster with a Fox or some other small car, but I stick with my car because nobody else runs one like mine at the track!!

I like to race something that stands out from the common cars out there.

A big Galaxie running 10's or better is a rare sight for sure.

As the world turns...I get more dizzy!

I agree. I took my white Mustang to Fun Ford Weekend, and Ellen kept filming the wrong cars. It seemed like there were a dozen white coupes.

Where's my beer and that half inch wrench?

557 stroker build up coming soon. Will be my new little hotrod, time for something other than mustangs!

would 8.5k as a roller be too far off to ask, it would give me some room to flex aswell on the price.
