Default Value 1970 440 4 spped convertible value question

New to the Challenger forum and am hoping could possibly help me with the value of a rolling chassis 1970 440/4 speed convertible RT. This car was documented by Gslen Govier. The current owner flew Galen to his property to decode the car in person roughly 5 years ago. The car is a high impart plum crazy now painted black (have no idea why the change). Anyhow the car is rust free and includes a non matching 440HP date correct engine with the correct 4 speed transmission. Car needs needs all interior and engine bay parts. The car was originally purchased from an autobody who completed the paint job and the owner could not pay his bill. The car was completely stripped before being painted and every part was removed from the vehicle. The condition of the body is now in perfect shape. The paint is flawless. I am thinking that the car would need 25k in parts alone to complete

My plan is to put this car back to original state and to keep this car long term. I am not a collector but did own my first cuda back in the 1980's when I was in high school. My goal is to find a car like that that my friends and I can enjoy and hopefully complete in another year or two in my garage. I am a mopar fan and would really enjoy buying a car that is this rare

Question. I tried searching for 440 convertibles on auction houses and haven't found any. This car is 1/34 4 speed cars for 1970. The owner was thinking that when finished the car could get 125k. The car is rare but non numbers and a color change would bring this car down in price. I also need to consider that I need to purchase pages of parts to complete this including the console, AM/FM 8 track radio, all of the convertible parts, interior parts, engine bay parts, wring harnesses etc. The dash was left on the car along with the rally gauges and those seem to be in above average condition.

Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated

thanks for reading,
