Well I am at a point right now I am really thinking of selling my car.  With all that has been said about it.  I am strapped for money at this time and trying to get things done.  If I have a very good offer I might really get rid of it.  I dont want to wish I could sell some of the extra things I have for it.  I am in Valdosta Ga now and I do not have my car down here wish I did I could be working on it. 
Got a pretty good start on my M46 optioned Barracuda restoration but now it is on hold till I can gather more funds.  Still need a few parts for it.  SIU Graduate 75 AAS Automotive Tech, 94 BS Advanced Tech Studies, 1997 MSED Workforce Education and Development

I have a feeling that what you think its worth and what it is really worth are very different, especially in the current market. Are M46 cars rare? Yes. Are they still basic barracuda models? Yes. An M46 car as cool as it is will not command true 'cuda dollars, and the prices of projects have been plummeting. Without a fender tag readout and current pictures of the car, it's hard to make an accurate assessment. But taking a wild stab at it, I would say its worth less than $10k maybe only $5k, and that includes the extra parts. You may be best off selling the car and the parts separate.

I agree as well. Unless that kind of money will help you out a lot it may be best to just put it away until better times.

I will have to see.  I have over $15,000 in parts and my car right now.  I know I have not posted the tag info not too much on it anyways.  I hate to get rid of it and the parts unless they are extra just wish I could get it done and I would feel better about it.

What was the factory color, and engine/transmission combination on it? I think most would agree that those are perhaps tha biggest value determining options in this case.

It was and will be fy1 and it had a 318 with 904 in it.  only option was an am radio if I remember correctly.  I have a lot of new parts for it but not all of them yet.  The trans and rear axle was changed before I got it.  The engine is a numbers matching right now.  I do not remember all of the info on the tag but will try to find it this evening.

Being an FY1 car helps it, but unfortunately at the end of the day it is still only a 318 car. When I bought my 318 project car it was for the most part a rust free straight car (needed some rust repair and some body work) and I paid $9k for it when the market was at its peak. Granted it wasn't an M46 car, but realistically I don't think that is going to buy you a ton in the resale arena. That said I would have to put my assessment at the value of your car around $5k and then sell the parts for what you can. I highly doubt you are going to get anywhere near the $15k you have invested. Even though the parts are technically new it is very doubtful you will be able to get the price you paid for them unless you bought them at a good discount. Not trying to sound harsh, just realistic. Hope this helps.

You need good current photos of the car and an exact description of everything you have.

Far as I know, I don't think you can sell your car now, with it being listed in the divorce documents and all. I imagine all that stuff would be settled soon tho,can it even be moved with it missing the trunk, floors, roof,quarters,doors,  front n back windows and fenders off? It is setting on 4 small jack stands now still isnt it? I believe it will just buckle if not secured.  I told Jackie about your garage for you. Im in Canada right now tho. Hope everything gets ironed out soon for you.  Im pretty sure there hasnt been anyone going into your shop , so all is just as you left it. I figured I would be seeing you in a month or so anyways, if you came in. I may can give you a hand.
