The folks here are good people and are merely trying to help.

Based on the description the car looks like a basket case. Seriously.
It may be a very nice car given the money that's been put into it, but
you just can't sell it with this many things wrong. Not for that kind
of money, anyway.

Some tips?

1. Fix all of the electrical problems. That cuts the list of problems
way down. The car can't be driven the way it is - no radiator fans? No
turn signals? Fix 'em.

2. Don't say, "Seats are bad but new ones are included." Just install
the new seats. It's a 10 minute job. Then you can turn a negative into
a positive: "Seats are brand new."

3. Same thing with that A/C compressor. If your friend went to the
trouble of buying a new one, go through the trouble to install it and
get the A/C working.

4. Buy and install new headliners, for crying out loud. That's a
relatively inexpensive item compared to how much it will drag the
value of the car down to have them flat out missing.

If you want to sell a project car, that's OK, but you'll have to cut
the price in half. Otherwise, put two grand into it, fix all of the
problems, and then you'll have no trouble getting $15k out of her.
