Maybe a $1000 or so for everything in good used shape. A bit less if you don't need the front panel, grills and bullet.

I've got a '51 Business Coupe project car - disassembled and sans engine - that I want a flat $3K for. All the removable sheet metal - save for the doors - has been chemically stripped and primered. Rusty floorboards were fixed using CE floor pans. The car is in "Frame off" condition at the moment, so don't plan on sending a trasport truck by to pick it up![:I]
While I AM selling some extra sheet metal to the fella in Denmark, I won't sell anything that goes to the aforementioned project car. Even tho it's disassembled, I want to be able to sell it as having everything needed to produce a finished Biz Coupe. (And I DO have an appropriate Champion 6 engine if need be - just not THE engine that the car came with.)[^]

Mr. Biggs - did your business coupe have OD, and if so, would you sell the transmission? I'm currently limping along in 3rd gear at 50 mph...

I have a manual transmission i removed from my 51 Champion project car, the car set for 15 years in Nevada and i've had it for 6 or 7, i sold the engine and it still turned over, I'll take some pictures of it when i get to work and get back to you to night.
Hope this helps
