selling classic auto

Thinking of thinning the herd. Too many and too busy. First out the door will be a 71 roadrunner with sunroof and about every other option in the book. complete with no rust. Haven't started it in 10 years.
Where to sell? Thoughts? Greed bay?

A buddy sold a late 60s Chevy truck he restored at the Barrett-Jackson auction for more coin than he ever imagined. Takes some time and travel to do so, but he said the whole experience of seeing the other cars there was a blast for a car guy anyway.

Was the reason for not starting due to low-octane no-lead fuel?

I'm sure you know about cranking that over without a procedure.

What motor(?), and would love to see some pics if possible, include engine bay.

No start because of no time. I got it from a buddy who got it from a resto shop that went belly up back about 1998. I rolled it from the trailer into a storage garage and other than air up the tires just left it there. The reason I bought it was because it was a one year color (W3 snow white) which would be cool with my 71 snow white Super Bee. Factory sunroof makes it a rare car and with rubber bumpers, houndstooth interior etc would make a very unique car.
I also have a white 68 Charger R/T, which I have played with.
