I Love my Corvette!

I have a 1972 numbers correct coupe. 454, 4 speed, air, p.s, p.b. 70k miles. This is a mostly un-molested car with cast iron exhaust, stock wheels & tires, factory interior and radio.

I am looking for opinions on selling this car. When I got it, it had the correct 454, but had a 69 400 horse tri-power set up on it.   

Would I be better off to sell the tri-power, (it is complete and still installed, with factory breather, fuel line, linkage etc.) and find the correct manifold, carb, breather for my 72, or sell it as is. I guess what I'm asking is, "Will the tri-power hurt the value of the car"?

Thanks in advance.

I'll have to leave this to the experts on this. I think Alan or Jack would know.

If they don't want the tri-power you can sell it for quite a bit of money
