    1973 Sebring “plus?” Need help determining if I should sell this or restore it? Value as is?

    Make it a "Ratty Satty" and have fun with it, get it sea worthy. Who knows once you get it running and driving you may or may not take the next step, if not it will make it easier to sell, since it would be a running and driving car.
