You could run an ad on Craig's List and see what you can get. I would think that if the car is in good shape other than the engine and top you might get $2 to 3,000. Look for other ads for similar cars and price it accordingly.

Now this is just a guess but a new top and engine might cost around $5,000. You would have to decide if the car is worth that much. Then again if you are lucky maybe the engine just needs a little work. Why was the car parked and never driven again?
