Default Thinking of Selling 1990 Z

I am pondering selling my White 1990 ZR1:

140,000 miles

Appearance wise it is in far from perfect shape

368
Ported Heads
417rwhp on Corey Hendersons Dyno (if i remember correctly)
long tube headers
4:10



32mm Front Sway Bar
26mm Rear Sway Bar
Coilovers
Revalved Bilstein Shocks
Polyurethane Bushings
Fast Ratio Steering Rack (think it was from an 89)
Turn 1 Powersteering Pump

Alpine Stereo

Probably Some other stuff i forgot

What do y'all think i can get for it?

That dyno number seems low for a 368 with Headers and a ported top end and such. Just FYI Id go back and relook over that dyno sheet.

A few bucks, and some elbow grease to detail the hell out of it might get you more than $15K.
The people on this board know that a 140Kmi. LT5 is not all used up. But few others do.
I assume it runs like a "bat out of hell" with those mods, but it would have to LOOK great too to overcome sales resistance to that high mileage.

Dumb question,

Doesn't the rebuilt motor technically mean he has less than 140,000 miles? That and like Graybeard suggested, detail the heck out of it and I bet you can get 15K+ on eBay:

"Race Ready 500hp ZR1 for the Holidays!

-368ci Race motor with ported heads/intake/headers
-4.10 gears
-COmpetition race tuned suspension
-Snowflake white with 140K miles (30,000 on the rebuilt motor)
-LOUD Alpine stereo to drown out the screaming women and children as you drive around the neighborhood

Starting bid is at 14,999 - Buy Now 19,999

Happy Holidays!

I believe the plenum was never ported . . . the guy i bought it from had a local shop do the rebuild and they used 368 liners but didn't port anything . . . i blew a head gasket last year and had Corey port the heads and go over everything with a fine tooth comb while he had it apart.

If you can keep it. Nice list of mods that would not scare me away. But the uninformed tire kicker will be.
