Probably need to sell my SE-R

Not for me but this past weekend I spent the weekend with NASA Northeast at the track and drove a car I bought off Ray Kawski that has 396,800 miles on it and someone wanted to buy it.  I told him not a chance and he asked if I knew of anyone selling.... I don't know the guy well but I could try to track down his e-mail address and put you in touch with him.  I've bought and sold 2-3 cars online and had mixed experiences.  All through ebay and the mixed experiences some were related to the cars and some were related to the person selling/buying.  I think if you went out online selling the car at this point, anyone looking at it is going to see a 22 year old Sentra.  Just that... a Sentra.  Not an SE-R.  It will look like a pretty decent beater car for anyone.  The appreciation and the repurchase market for our cars is long gone unfortunately.  Here on this list or on one of the forums would probably be your best bet.  In terms of price, I know if you could use the cash, you'll probably want more than people with the appreciation or not will be willing to pay.  I wouldn't expect to see anyone willing to spend more than $1,500 or maybe even offer you $1,000 for it.

I'll see if I can get my hands on that kids e-mail address.

Ok, so my current situation looks like selling my '93 SE-R is going to need to happen.
I'm wondering what I should ask for it and if anyone has had good experiences selling online?
Suggestions for where to try selling and what a good asking price might be?

Car info:

One owner, bought new, always lived in the Phoenix, AZ area - never been in snow/salt.
149,000 miles
Front and rear STB
KYB GR2 struts
ACT Street clutch
JWT POP charger intake
Energy Suspension engine mount inserts (in box, not installed)
Original 14" wheels and B14 five-spoke 15" wheels
Goodrich stainless steel braided brake lines
Momo shift knob
Power locks with alarm system
Cruise Control works fine
No stereo unit but has Pioneer 3-way speakers in front and 2-way speakers in rear
5th gear popout has caused me to store the car in my garage for the past 2.5 years (our local emissions test requires driving the car on a dyno, must work in all 5 gears - so if they can't drive it to test it I can't register it)
Ruby Pearl paint is in very good condition except for the roof and some spots on the hood & bumpers.
The car ran great before I had to store it, 5th gear and possibly needing a new A/C compressor are the two issues it had.
One small accident - very minor damage to front-passenger corner in 1996

It makes me sad to get rid of her but my current situation means that I could really use the money for the car plus I don't know when I'll ever have the time/money/space to work on it and get it all running again.
Photo attached but I think they don't always come through on the list...

Thanks for any help guys...
