Sjoe Franco, that's a really difficult one to answer. After all the expense and effort that you've put in you should rather not even think about selling. You will never get back what you've put into it. A buyer won't see all that .... he'll see an old model vehicle that looks like it's been re-done and ask himself 'why ... was it smashed? full of rust?' and so on. Then there's the conversion ... old Ford V6, what about spares, how much mileage is left in the motor ..... etc etc. I doubt that you will be offered more than 65 / 70k for it, but to you it'll be worth a lot more.

Keep it. You know what you've got! ;-)
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.
