Default thinking of selling a 1992 SE

Hey guys

I have a 1992SE that has been sitting since July of 2006. The timing chain broke, took apart the engiine and the valves are bent so bad it made me shutter. :( We've tried over the winter to bring her back to life...but its come down to a new engine being needed....ive mentioned that before here on BC.

Here'* the list of improvements...those of you who think its worth anything, could you suggest a sale price for it, if i were to sell it.

New Brakes ( i know that wont do anything, but nice to know)
4 New struts with 500 miles on them
Alpine CD player with MP3
4 pioneer speakers
tires
motor mounts
remote starter/keyless

It has 170,150 miles on her. Paint is in excellent condition. A new engine is 350.. plus my uncle'* shop labor probably 300. so figure 650 to get her on the road.

I might even keep it...is it worth it?

I'm guessing you can get $200-$400 for the car considering the miles, the fact that it is an SE, and the fact that it needs a motor. I've seen several early 90s bonnevilles for $500 - $1500 in running condition. Heck my dad just got a 96 SSE in perfect running order for $1500.
