Fair Mk1 project-parts value

A mate & I started a Mk1 Escort project nearly 25 years ago, mostly buying bits with the intention of using those bits to actually build something when we had the cash. Well life kinda got in the way, we ran outta space when we moved out, marriage, families yadda yadda. Now I think I'd like to start doing something with it again, but I know decent Mk1's aren't that easy to come by so would like to offer him some reasonable money for his half.
And I definitely don't wanna lowball him. :)

So if I remember what we've got correctly:
(*) straight rust-free non-TwinCam manual-trans shell with coupla sets of good doors/bonnets/boots & GT guards, with GT dash metal, but it's been in undercoat for 20 years so needs media blasting & epoxy undercoating to protect it.
(*) couple of sets of interiors, although anything cloth will need retrimming.
(*) a Dellow W58-Pinto kit, and a W58 which was good back then but has probably not been stored correctly.
(*) couple of uncracked GT dashpads, a 1300E set of wood-trim & glovebox.
(*) reasonable lights inc new round headlights, a few sets of good exterior metal trim, GT bumperettes, new round-headlight grille.
(*) set of reset lowered leaves, matching front springs.
(*) pair of seats which we thought had been Mk2 RS2000 Scheel, but which have been retrimmed & repadded so as to be unrecognisable (and which need retrimming to use - I'd frankly just get a set of JDM Recaros).
(*) 205-block Pinto (that's been sitting outside under a tarp for 10 years unfortunately), a new-back-then non-ball-bearing T25, non-Cossie EFI Sierra intake-manifold, dizzy, set of old-skool way-too-low-for-modern-turbo-tuning CR Cossie pistons.
(*) about 2 car's worth of wiring-loom, wipers, etc etc and a 1300GT instrument-panel.

It's very barn-find-project looking at the moment, but a straight shell with only surface-rust might have value these days?

Appreciate any comments! :)

    A price for the job lot will be quite a bit less than selling individual parts, I have purchased a car with quite a few spare parts, sold off some of the bits I don't need or won't be using and have come out square before I begin the build.
     
    What its worth is what someone else is willing to pay, you could always list it on ebay with a huge reserve to see what happens!
     
    All the best with your plans, you won't regret building the car up but you sure would regret letting it go.

    Hey that's not a bad idea ... make up a username, so if some dufus does actually bid for way too much I can disappear into the ether (we've just finished building a house, too attached to the Escort to sell it for anything near what it's actually worth! :-) )

    I would have thought 4-5k all up as a sale price to a new buyer who would have to collect.
    full restoration necessary and still only worth 15-maybe 20K but Im cheap too!
    Photos will help
