What should my SD sell for?

Hey guys, I was wondering what you guys think my car would sell for. After having tinkered with it for the past year and a half I think I'm about ready for a new project. About the car

-176k miles
-Engine runs beautifully. Always starts on first try.
-Transmission shifts wonderful
-New tires ($600 alone)
-About $2500 of general maintenance all recorded (not including labor costs)
-Brand new Pioneer stereo system (included for extra $$$)
-Windows tinted by PO but could probably stand to be redone (hasn't bothered me)
-Car has been repainted in its lifetime but is still the original color (Orient Red)
-One rust bubble on drivers door about the size of a quarter (no visible rust)
-Has its share of dents and scratches but nothing too bad
-Paint flaked off on hood but again no rust
-There is no A/C
For an extra few bucks I will include a spare (original) motor. The original motor and trans were pulled out as one at 120k miles in 04 I think because of an internal trans problem. Instead of reattaching the original engine to another trans, the PO just dropped in a new engine and trans combo. When he did this he took the dash cluster from the donor car and installed it in this one so the miles on the odometer are that of the motor and trans. Which is about 176k. So the body has about 120-125k miles. I bought the car in March of 06 for $2100 including the other motor. I have put about $25-2700 into it. So about $4500 total. Although its unlikely, I'd like to recoup as much money as I put into it was I can. What do you guys think?
