I would like some honest opinions to help me decide whether or not to send my '34 Ford Tudor to auction in March. Selling it to start a new fresh build of a '33 Steel Coupe...  Before I list it, I would like honest opinions as to whether or not it would be an appropriate addition to an auction,  what, in your opinions, would be a reasonable reserve price, and what, on a conservative basis, should it sell for.

The car is a 1934 Ford Model 40 Tudor Street Rod, all steel body, 350/350, originally designed and built by a rod shop in Palm Bay, FL in the early '70s.  It was "lost" for 20 years and, eventually "found" in a lawn care maintenance shed in So.Florida.  I restored it back to how it was originally built & pinstripped, with a few modern updates. Engine is being replaced as we speak due to a broken crank, so it will have less than 100 miles on the engine, with a GM crate engine warranty. Vintage A/C, B&M sport shifter, USB/CD AM/FM sound system.  Doors are all solenoid controlled. Front Disc Power Brakes, rear drums. 650cc Carb. Electronic Ignition, etc. Adjustable Coil over shocks. Mustang 2 front end, 9" ford rear. Paint is 1 year old, rims have the original Patina (Rocket rims). (Should I replace with shiny chrome for more appeal?)

I would appreciate your honest opinions.
