What’s a TA, color change to orange, numbers engine and 4 speed, standard dash, build sheets, older resto needing some freshening and paint worth? I can’t find any completed ebay auctions.

Start with what a mint/nice T/A goes for and deduct from there. You didn't give anywhere near enough info to get an educated answer...

My WAG would be about $65K or less. Depends on how much "freshening" it needs.

Based on the limited information given, I’d say $40,000 to $55,000. Where in that range depends on a number of factors including how much someone is willing to pay at a given time and finding that one buyer.
I have a similar question on a T/A. An E body guy in this area sadly passed away earlier this year, and I am buying a trailer from his widow. He owned a T/A she wants to sell. I haven’t seen the car in years as he has a cuda he took to all the shows. The cuda has a one of one feature on the fender tag which would get a ton of press if it was restored to the tag. But she’s planning to keep the car and the son who has a mild interest in cars will get the cuda after her. So unfortunately that very unique cuda will likely not see the light of day for 10+ years and nothing or no one is going to change that. Look for an interesting barn find to come forth in 10-15 years!
The T/A is orange, 4 speed, louvers and 450 wheels. As best I recall it’s original paint and I believe numbers match, but has patina including some rust. The late owner talked of restoring it but never got in gear with that.
She had someone take the car for evaluation and came up with a big needs done list and offered her something like 30K. She was insulted and probably rightly so, and told them she wanted $69K. They gave her the car back and said good luck.
She’s having some work done on it to get it roadworthy and then will try to sell. I have a Challenger fan friend who I told of the car and he’d love to buy it to restore.
In dealing with this woman, she seems to be one who works to find a range of values and then wants top of range. If somethings worth 35-40K she’ll expect 39.
I’m not sure if she thinks the car is really worth 69, or if that was just a punch back to the place for lowballing her with their crappy offer.
I’m thinking that her T/A might also be worth 40-50 assuming numbers and at least a broadcast sheet, but even that may be high if a ground up resto was warranted.
Being put in the role of middleman I like to push both her and my friend to be realistic, but my best action is probably just introduce them and bow out.
Sorry if I’m hijacking the thread, but it’s a similar situation and maybe gives some insight on trying to price a T/A.

You know that I know the deal, and you are correct, bow out after the introductions...

Orange??? Sad to hear.

They only came white or blue.

RAIII or IV? My guess would be III.

As said too many questions and no pics.

I am in agreement with mastershaker value of the TA between 40 and 55. I see shells out there advertised for 30.
I’m in the same predicament trying to help a friend that’s in the hospital sell his TA. I’m going to list it next month after the holidays.
Maybe somebody can help me here? It’s a FM3 ,auto, Non-matching motor but a TA motor. White interior with build sheet and sales invoice. Older restoration in need of some touch up, but drivetrain has all been gone through,
motor overhaul ,trans overhaul, rear end overhauled, has very little miles on it since that was done. A restoration shop in central California did that work.
Don’t mean to take over the thread, but maybe ,
‘newbomb Turkk’ can compare with what he’s trying to buy
