Hi, This is a very gray area.Now that the car is not stock anymore, even if someone tells you that they can give you an "honest appraisial" it may not all together be true.They could tell you maybe what the car is worth with the modifications that are in place. The bottom line on any car Camaro or otherwise after there have been performance modifications (engine swaps,tranny swaps,you geth the idea).Then it really becomes a buyers market car.The simple way to explain that is what would a person that wants that car with those modifications pay for it. You may find one person that will offer you $5000.00 and another that may offer you twice that amount. And now that the car is not all orignal anymore you really can't start at an appraisial then add the modifications to that.If it were my car I would take the amount that was paid for the car before being modified then add in all the modifications and try to come up with a price that way. I have done that with many Camaros and it works pretty well for the most part.But you need to find a buyer that wants that car with those mods.In many cases dollar for dollar it may even be worth more to a buyer that wants your car as it is then it would be totally stock. I know this may not be much help but once a car has been modified to this point there really is no exact rules or books to give you an exact answer.I would run the car without a price"make offer ad" and see what you come up with.Best part is you don't have to accept an offer you do not think is fair.You may be pleased what someone will pay for a car that he or she wants with those types of mods. If you can provide any other information I might be able to help you a little more. But for now just see what offers you can get you may hit a dollar amount that will more than make your selling it pleasing.
