NJ Selling 06 Rx8 149,000 miles - needs engine rebuilt

Has anyone sold their rx8 once the engine has gone? I have a 06' with 149,000 miles on the vehicle. What do you think I could sell it for? Quotes on a new engine rebuild are $4,500 but I'm looking to start a family and want to put that money toward a family friendly vehicle. Please let me know if I can sell my car even though the buyer will need to put an engine in it! (It has a new catalytic converter in it!!) -sadly parting from this amazing car

How bad is the compression, and how's the rust? MT or AT car?

If you haven't blown an apex seal, coolant seal, bearing, etc, and the body is in great shape, I think it's more than reasonable to ask for $4,000 as long as you are honest.

If the apex seals are blown and the body is in great shape, I would ask for $3,000.

Most people looking to buy an Rx-8 with a blown engine are probably going to
spend $700 - $1500 in parts and fix it up. I know I would if I know what I do now.

Worst case scenario, you start high and lower the price until it sells
unless you need to sell it as soon as possible.

Good luck.
