I would donate, but I want to get around 500. KBB is about 2500.

Try going to the dealer and asking the techs if they want it for $500. If its worth $2500 someone might want it that can fix it cheap. Use I feel its values to be more accurate than kbb.

I know you guys have some differences. Like how dealerships are open on Sundays there. They all have to close on Sundays here.

Price the truck at trade-in value and advertise it with a good picture in Trader. It'll move FAST.

Take good pictures of the Tbird (all exterior angles, interior dash, interior front seats, interior back seat, trunk, under hood, odometer) to the local Ford service department and ask the techs. Do the same at the trans shop in your town.

Dealers won't buy for their inventory unless you are selling at below low book on an item that should move quickly. Forget a dealer buying the Tbird.

Yea, ebay. Hyper won't itemize, so the tax deduction is worthless to him.

Buy a $200 boneyard tranny for the bird, throw it in and sell it for twice as much. Its only a couple hour job.
