Opinions wanted on sale of Stang

I don't post on this forum too often but I read it almost everyday. I do need to get opinions on an upcoming sale though. Due to some things that have come up I am going to sell the Stang. My car is modified and I was looking for some opinions whether I should return the car to stock first or just sell it as is, modified? And what type of money can I expect to get, or ask for, in either condition?

It's a black 05, Premium, IUP,haker 1000, with 10,000 miles. Pretty much showroom condition, taken care of with Zaino products, etc...

+1. Sell it as is. You'd probably break even over removing the parts and selling separately. Plus, modded it may attract more enthusiasts.

The only thing I see that might hinder your sale is the lack of Catalytic converteres. In my area for example, there are a few areas that require a smog test. If the car fails during an inspection the prospective buyer is going to be comming for you. If you included the original parts, it might be a bit different. The other mods seem like selling points, so I would talk them up. Otherwise, expect a lot of calls wondering why you're asking so much for the car. You'd be amazed how many want to talk price before they even see the car.

OK, so I've added a few things to it. Check my Profile - too many to list here.

I'd love to sell it for 35K. I Don't think that will happen though. I will probably keep it the way it is and hopefully draw more attention from enthusiasts and weed out the Joe Shmos. All original parts would be included in the sale. Thanks for the input from everyone. You may see this on Ebay shortly. :-)

Good point on the cats. If he's running a short x with race pipes, he could easily replace with cats.
