Opinions needed running or roller
#1
I have a 73 coupe that needs to go. it was a Texas car and is not rusty (even the cowl is good) I pulled the engine and tore it down(351C 2 BBL)
H code car.
Should I sell it as a roller or put a re-ring kit in it and sell it running?
would it be worth the price difference running? 2000 verses 3500 ?
Tell me your thoughts.

Try selling it as is and if you get no sale after a month fix it then relist it

Need pictures...And detailed ones ...Is it original numbers matching motor?..How is the paint?..Any options? AC..Powerwindows...nasa hood...vinyl top..factory rims or hubcaps ? tilt steering? 4 speed or auto? Too many question marks to make a good assesment...hehe

There might be a buyer out there who's not an enthusiast (yet). If it runs, there's a better chance that a non-mechanic would be happy to buy a vintage 'Stang.

My 2 cents,

I think it would bring more in running condition, that removes the big qustion about the condition of the engine if it is out of the car.

Without Pic's there is no quetion that any advice is a guess. Based on the information provided I'd say as a roller 1300.00 as a running car... 2500.00

But, my 72 Mach I Q code 4 speed Compares very nicely with yours.

If you get it running you may open your market up a bit and capture those who may not be comfortable with installing the driveline.

Thanks, guys..I ordered the engine kit today. If nothing else, I can move it around without pushing.
