CMC Speedster

Question for the group, I have a CMC speedster C that I bought almost 10 years ago. It was assembled by CMC and was running when I bought it. The bad part is I bought a bunch of parts and removed the engine and it’s not running. Is there any market for selling as is? Any idea on it Value? The car is complete and in decent shape. Need to let her go. I have not made the time to get her running. Just looking for ideas and a new home for her and hopefully someone will put her back on the road.

YES there are folks looking for an entry entry fixer-upper.  You'll need 6-8 or so good pictures.  Is it still OEM gel coat finish?  Is it in good shape (no cracks, chips, stress cracks).?  A dull faded gel coat surface can be brought back through wet sanding and buffing.  How's interior?  An new VS interior is $2500 for parts.  Windshield if cracked is $500.  New top, tonneau, side curtains add $1k. If tires are 10 years old - they need replacing.  Is engine completely stock 1600 cc with single carb?  You might look into getting the engine rebuilt to get it running - maybe $1k for stock rebuild.  A running car that can be driven now and upgraded along the way is worth a lot more than a non-runner ---- especially in Spring/Summer time.

Lastly how is it currently registered/titled?  I'm sure someone will ask - is it RE-Sale RED? It won't bring much without some good pictures and details on the good and the bad.  You can also look on SAMBA where there are many listed.  It could bring $2-7k non-running or $10-13k running.  A clean decent runner will bring $16-18k.
