There are a few things that are killing you on this car. 1) The 302 engine. Most people know that the car originally came with a 351W engine. 2) Quarter panel damage / rust. Figure at least $1000 to replace it correctly, unless you can do it yourself. 3) It is a mostly disassembled project Cougar. People are reluctant to buy a car in boxes, since they didn't take it apart. I think you would get your asking price if you were to spend the time to re-assemble the car completely with all the new parts. In order to get your $$ back out, you may very well indeed need to sell all the parts. Best of luck!
