It will be hard to sell any car not in running condition, so you will need to find someone who is willing to buy the car for the shell, and put another engine in. that will take some time and effort to sell and get it listed in the right place. Craigslist is a good one for what your trying to do, and you will need to deduct the price of an engine and maybe labor to install it off your asking price. Plus you didn't specify what model you have.
